Amber Ayers

I’m a Jesus-following pastor and coach with a leadership strategy to help people envision and embody a hope-filled future – a future in which their unique gifts are mobilized for the flourishing of their surrounding communities.

As a coach, I can help you discover your sweet spot through leadership development, personal discovery and team building, using powerful tools such as the Enneagram personality profile, StrengthsFinder® and values clarification exercises. I find great joy in helping people get unstuck and move forward with renewed energy in life and work. With a coaching posture that has a forward lean, I will help you envision a future that doesn’t currently exist and influence the way you and your team thinks, works and relates.

Whatever you bring to the table, I’m willing to discuss and provide honest feedback. With kindness and integrity, I can peel back the layers of a situation and reveal potential and strength in individuals and communities.  I have a high capacity for conflicted or confusing situations, tenacity in getting to the root of an issue, and enthusiasm for working with a wide variety of people.

I am also a Leader Breakthru approved coach and—utilizing Leader Breakthru resources—I coach leaders through each of these developmental experiences:

TRAC: Helping Christ-followers clarify where they are in their development
TRANSITION: Helping you survive and get all you can out of your in-between moment
CALLING: Clarifying life direction and the values that guide you
CONTRIBUTION: Discovering your unique influence
CONVERGENCE: Helping you to run the race so as to finish well

I am able to customize the coaching experience to match specific needs and maximize potential. In the one-on-one setting, I will come alongside you in self-discovery. Then, together, we will ignite your passions and link those passions to the whole team, creating an optimum environment for the success of the collective group.

Formerly the co-founder and executive director of GreenHouse Ministry, an intentional community for vocational discernment with twenty-somethings, and pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Colorado Springs, I have extensive experience in personal and professional coaching. In addition to joining the coaching staff of Thresholds, I currently works for my alma mater, Fuller Seminary, as a Vocation Formation Team Leader, and the denomination in which I’m ordained, ECO, as a discipleship coach. Along with my sweet husband Matthew, and our two little kiddos, Zeke and Halle Joy, we live in intentional community and we’re invested in our local Park Hill neighborhood in southeast Colorado Springs.
