Meet Your Coach

Rev. Dr. Leon Bloder

I have seen the highs and lows of life in ministry. I’ve experienced burnout and know what it’s like to struggle with work/life balance, decision-making in a challenging leadership environment, and leading a church in our rapidly changing, post-pandemic culture.

If you are at a crossroads in your life in ministry, looking to level up your leadership skills, live more fully and intentionally or discover a path to success toward long-term goals, I’d be delighted to come alongside and help.

I am an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) with twenty-five years of ministry experience serving in churches in Central Florida, Chicago, and Austin, TX. Over those years, I’ve served as a youth minister, Director of Christian Education, and a solo pastor. I’m currently serving as the Lead Pastor/Head of Staff at Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church in Austin.

I have a BA in History and English Literature from Florida State University, a Master of Divinity from McCormick Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. I’m married to Meredith and we have three boys (Ages 28, 19 & 13), two West Highland Terriers, and two mostly friendly cats.

“Coaching has helped me develop boundaries, grant permissions, and given me the tools I need to both feel empowered and reach the outcomes we are working towards.”
