Welcome to Gethsemene Support Services LLC dba Papali’i Life Coach. As a life coach on Oahu, Hawaii, I work as a Ministry Success Strategist. I help ministry leaders overcome spiritual and emotional stress, stagnation, and burnout.

I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am of Samoan ancestry. Our family lived in the projects in Kalihi on the welfare system. My parents always wanted us to do well in school. Attending church on Sundays was a way of life for us. My parents kept us active in sports and other activities and they never missed our games or events. I was blessed to attend a Catholic high school in Honolulu, Hawaii. I went on to further pursue my education in college and graduate school. 

What I love about coaching is being able to help people come to their own solutions to their problems. The relationship between a coach and ministry leader is co-creative, meaning that we are equals and both have an active role. I am not a therapist, counselor or consultant. I am a trained coach using honed communication skills to support you as a detached thinking partner. Together we create more power for you to effect meaningful change and take dynamic actions towards your spiritual or ministry goals.

The coaching experience looks at the here and now and the future, creating possibilities for the client. The issue is not what happened in the past, but in this instant. What is the current story being written? Coaching helps leaders master their states of mind. A session for a leader includes looking at a challenging experience and creating an alternative to getting grounded and centered and moving into new action.

Ministry Life Coach Services

How do our services work?

As a ministry life coach, we help train leaders to overcome spiritual and emotional stress, stagnation, and burnout. This is how our services work:

  1. The ministry leader meets with the coach and shares expectations and objectives. Together the ministry leader and the coach explore potential game plans, as chemistry and trust is developed.
  2. The ministry leader will commit to coaching sessions as decided between the leader and the coach. There is a monthly retainer fee. During these sessions clients experience the power of the Holy Spirit working through the coach to help achieve all God has planned.

Training and Coaching Sessions

I am a trained life coach using honed communication skills to support you as a detached thinking partner. Together we create more power for you to effect meaningful change, and take dynamic actions towards your leadership, spiritual or ministry goals.

The process begins with an intake / assessment session including “Ten Big Questions” that inform me about you. I will email it to you once you contact me. Promptly answer them, send it back, and we can schedule a meeting.

The second step is to meet at the scheduled time for a free sample session to determine what services are appropriate for you or your group. The most crucial part is for you to name what you’d like to take away from the session, called the “Client’s Agenda.”

Group, Organizational Leadership Training

The focus of the training is on qualities that every ministry leader or person needs to develop to become a better leader and to become the leader others will want to follow.

Coaching Session

1. The ministry leader meets with the coach and shares expectations and objectives. Together the ministry leader and the coach explore potential game plans, as chemistry and trust is developed.
