As a believer in Jesus Christ, my primary calling is to love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love my neighbor as myself. I derive my unique calling in the Kingdom of God from this general and universal calling. I like to put it this way: “Love God, Invest in People.”  To me, this means devoting my time, my energy, and my resources to walk with others in the faith, partnering in their good, their growth, and their development into all they can be in Christ.

What Faith Leaders Say

I have worked with faith leaders from several denominations and traditions. Here's what they have to say.

Do you have someone in your life that inspires you to move closer to Jesus every time you sit down just to chat? That’s what Vicki Gatchell is for me. She’s gracefully convicting, honest, persistent in following Jesus, and audacious in serving those around her. I pray you have a person like that in your life. A person that leads you to know Jesus.

Pastor of Spiritual Growth | River City Church

“The mission of most churches is to make disciples! The problem is, most of us have no idea how to go about doing this. We therefore rely on programs, flashy advertising and believe “bigger is better.” Then I met Vicki Gatchell who showed me there was a different way…a better way…a way where we can follow Jesus’ example. The way was “start small, go slow, and go deep.” Discipleship is about relationship where we walk alongside another person. Being coached by Vicki has been a blessing and a joy. I now have someone who walks alongside me in the messiness of ministry. She shares my joys, struggles, highs and lows….

Discipleship isn’t a flash in the pan. It is a lifelong process of intentionally growing deeper and deeper in our walk with Jesus. Vicki not only understands this, she lives it. Having someone come alongside our church as we develop a discipleship culture has been such a blessing. We are so grateful that the Lord would bring us someone like Vicki to help us!
