Advancement Team

  • Tim Ware

    Lead Consultant, coach

    After eighteen years in bi-vocational ministry in rural and suburban churches, in 2008 I left Mustang Engineering to work in inner city ministry, before transitioning in 2010 to focus on advancing ministry leaders and churches.  My philosophy is that we are all created to advance and that it is never the Lord’s intention for us to remain as we are.  I believe that advancement in our personal relationship with the Lord, as leaders, and as churches only happens through intentional effort. I have Bachelors Degree in Pastoral Ministries, Master's Degree in Leadership, am an Ordained Minister, a Certified Consultant/Leadership Coach with Church Life Resources, Certified Trainer with Acts 2 Journey, and a Certified Level 3 Coach with the AG Coaching Network. My wife and I live in the rural town of Bluff Dale, TX. We have two adult children. I love the outdoors and to work with my hands. If you're interested in a coach or consultation, send me a note, I would love to talk to you.

  • Rachel Ware

    ICF Coach, Consultant

    My husband Tim and I began ministry together when we were married in 1992. In our time we served in rural and suburban churches doing adult, youth, and children's ministries until we moved to the inner-city in 2007. I began coaching in 2004 and in 2008 I began to serve full-time as a ministry/leadership coach and consultant. Through my partnership with the Assemblies of God Missionary Church Planters and Developers Department I have the privilege of coaching new and veteran missionaries in transition, renewals, and support raising, along with my work with pastors and churches. I have Bachelors Degree in Education and am a licensed teacher. I am a certified Level 3 Coach with the AG Coaching Network, an ACC Coach with the International Coaching Federation, a Licensed Minister, and a Certified Consultant/Leadership Coach with Church Life Resources. My husband and I live on my family's ranch near Bluff Dale, Texas. I enjoy keeping up with our college-age children, reading, and walking the creek. I would love to connect with you if you would like to try  coaching for a season.

  • Tommy Hayes

    Rural Specialist

    My wife Diana and I have been married for 42 years. From 1992 - 2016 we pastored 5 rural churches in towns as small as Cayuga, Texas, population 760. In 2016 my passion for small towns and rural churches opened the door to begin coming alongside pastors in these areas. We help discover resources, plan strategic outreaches, train congregations, coach, and encourage pastors. We believe that the smallest towns and smallest churches have potential to do great things for the kingdom. I am an Ordained Minister and a Coach with the AG Coaching Network. My wife and I live in our home town of Malakoff, Texas. We have two adult children and the best eight grandchildren in the world. I enjoy the outdoors, my land, and my cattle. If you are a rural pastor and want to talk to someone, don't hesitate to let me know.
