We were more than blessed to have Jeff as our counselor and coach when three counselors before him had given up on our marriage being reconcilable. He is discerning and wise, tenacious and challenging, and believes that God is the Great Counselor and can work miracles. He pushed us to believe God, try new things and work harder than we ever had, giving us skills and tools to reconcile our own marriage. We are living proof that there is always hope when God is in the mix. God used Jeff to show us the way when all others thought there was no way.
Richard and Sharon Wildman, Stubborn Pursuits Ministries, South Charleston, Ohio
Jeff Williams has given more than just his time to helping marriages to heal. His entire heart is captured in it. His reliance on sound biblical knowledge and values has grounded our marriage and spiritual life with a solid foundation that can be built upon for years. We believe that God is using Jeff and his gifts to reconstruct brokenness and point people to a God who can restore hearts and give renewed hope for the future.
Gary and Andrea Keener, New Carlisle, Ohio
I have benefited personally and professionally from Jeff’s counseling skills. He helped several of our family members navigate successfully through perplexing life challenges that left us all in a better place. As a pastor I found Jeff to be a trusted “go-to referral resource”, whether seeking input on struggling members or in suggesting his services to those beyond my own scope of expertise. His balance of grace and truth in facilitating client growth is exceptional, accurately reflecting the name of the counseling service he founded.
Lavern Nissley, Executive Director, Marriage Resource Center of Miami Valley, Springfield, Ohio
Jeff Williams has an incredible counseling gifting matched only by his passion and experience. I have referred numerous clients in the past where he has met or exceeded expectations. Jeff offers multiple approaches to resolving the challenges people face.
John Essig, Executive Pastor, Fellowship Christian Church, Springfield, Ohio
Jeff Williams is an amazing counselor…and human being. Jeff knows how to speak the truth and do it in love. I’ve known Jeff for many years in several different settings. His wisdom and ability to see through to the core of emotional and spiritual issues is a true gift from God. I highly endorse Jeff Williams as an effective counselor.
Neil Haney, Senior Pastor, Vineyard Church of Northridge, Springfield, Ohio
Jeff is a compassionate and caring counselor who can help individuals and couples understand and get to the heart of their issues and work towards wholeness in their mind, soul and relationships. I personally know of many couples that he has guided to healing and restoration.
Barb Dotson, Director of Mentor Services, Marriage Resource Center of Miami Valley, Springfield, Ohio
I have confidently referred challenging couples to Jeff and Jill for marriage coaching. As both a professional coach and a licensed professional counselor myself, I appreciate and respect the keen insight, depth of experience, and professionalism that Jeff brings to helping relationships. I highly recommend him to you as both coach and counselor!
Tina Stoltzfus Horst, MS, NCC, CLC, Executive Director, Coaching Mission International, Goshen, Indiana
Jeff and Jill give themselves wholly and fully to likely the biggest breakdown of our society, the family and the bond and partnership of marriage. They have a safety about them, but also a no-compromise approach that will push people to excellence and take ownership. They stay within the boundaries of personal responsibility that those in trouble need to have and take. No one should care more for someone’s issues/problems than those in it. They also by raising a high bar and commitment to excellence will give folks the opportunity to move well beyond ground zero, but to a place of thriving. They do the basic tenets in their own lives: love, model, coach!
Jeff Pinkleton, City Director, The Gathering, Springfield, Ohio
We first met Jeff and Jill when they stepped into a crisis marriage that we’d been trying to help. We tagged along to observe their unique style of Marriage Coaching. What we saw over the next several weeks was a unique and powerful way of offering a rescue. We were so impressed that we signed up for their Marriage Coaching class, and our marriage has never been the same. We continue to use many of the tools and techniques we learned during this training for our own marriage and to more effectively help other couples in crisis.
Our experience with Marriage Coaching was extremely beneficial and eye opening. We were able to open the communication between us in a fresh and new way. The understanding of how essential it is to listen to your partner’s feelings and to hear the heart of your partner while holding it gently cannot be overstated. Historically, our differences arose out of our own selfish desires. In this process, we became acutely aware that the marriage is bigger than either of our individual desires or interests. When this fact takes root and becomes a priority, the concept of “dying to oneself” actually has a chance of working.
Doug & Courtney McFee, Frederick, Maryland
Marriage Coaching helped us to go beyond what we thought could happen. We acquired relationship tools that help us respect, protect and strengthen our marriage. Where we were once very “self-focused” we have learned to become “us-focused.” This was accomplished by learning listening and speaking techniques that promote selflessness and respect, and helped to minimize hurts and blame. We also learned to view our marriage as a separate entity that we are both charged to support, feed and protect. Seeing our marriage as separate from each one of us, but at the same time, consisting of both of us, AND JESUS, helped us enormously. It’s a new model – a model that continues to provide us with real strength, and hope, when we most need it. Everything we learned has also helped us in relationships with our children, family and friends. As an imperfect wife, mother, sister, daughter, person, etc., I rely on these skills to be a better person, and to do a better job in the many roles I fill.

Jeff is a collaborator at heart. He and his wife, Jill, have been used by God in Clark County to rally the Body of Christ around marriage and family in an unprecedented way. It has been a pleasure to work with them and I am excited they are being called to build Clark County as a Community of God.
Wally Martinson, former Founder and Executive Director, The Nehemiah Foundation, Springfield, Ohio
In just a few sessions Jeff has enabled me to move forward in some key ministry areas that I have been bogged down in for years. Coaching has given me a clarity and focus to my ministry that is energizing and refreshing. Jeff is one of the best. I am amazed at how quickly Jeff has become a friend and ally whose coaching has brought out the best in me as a ministry leader, husband, and father.
Roger Thoman, Founding Director, Appleseed Ministry Group, Arroyo Grande, California
Jeff Williams’ work with me has been transformational over the last year and a half. His intuition, skill, experience, self-discipline, prophetic gifts, way with words, and genuine loving care make him a huge asset to me. As my coach Jeff has confidently guided me with “powerful questions” helping me think through significant leadership challenges and embrace lasting personal change in how I lead and serve my congregation. I rely on his insights and the abundance of useful resources he makes available to me. I have benefited as much from the wonderful care he shows me as I have from the wonderful example he sets, which inspires me in caring for others. If you have opportunity to benefit from Jeff’s influence, by all means USE IT.
Fr. Tom Simmons, Rector, St Peter’s Church, Purcellville, Virginia
Jeff Williams has a God-given passion for seeing men and women set free to walk forgiven and to reach their potential relationally and in every aspect of life. That passion coupled with Jeff’s fine tuned coaching skills was greatly used by God as a catalyst for change in my life. He helped me overcome a lifelong problem of procrastination, and through coaching helped me bring focus to my ministry skills. His skill in listening, then asking powerful questions led me to choose action steps that have uncovered the hidden best in me. Through coaching, Jeff helped me safely walk through a mine field of transition in my professional life. If your desire is to soar to new heights, allow this eagle help you learn to fly!

I strongly recommend Jeff Williams as a coach. I have had Jeff as my personal coach and he has helped me tremendously in clarifying, setting, and reaching goals. He has also been helpful in helping bring focus and clarity in defining and prioritizing what issues to work on. His insight and perception have been very valuable to me in this coaching process.
Jon Taylor, Lead Pastor, First Christian Church, Phoenix, Arizona
Jeff is an expert on relational issues and can quickly uncover hindrances to unity and discern solutions that lead to resolution. He will both relentlessly challenge you toward righteousness in relationship, even while graciously supporting you through what’s necessary to achieve it! I’ve seen him calm turbulent situations, mediate impossible ones, and quickly discover deceptions that underlie divisiveness.
Beth Anne Leasure, Pro Cycling, www.bethleasure.com, Shepherdstown, WV
Jeff Williams has mastered the skill of coaching toward discovery, ownership and change. He has repeatedly demonstrated the remarkable ability to help me clear the clutter of emotion and circumstances to better understand where I am, where I want to go, and what steps I need to take to get there. He helps me to see me more clearly and approach my challenges in healthy and manageable ways.
Pastor Randy Dennis, Lakewood Church of God, Clarksburg, MD
I’ve learned quickly in my young career that success or failure is determined by my ability to create great relationships with my partners, co-workers, customers, vendors, family, friends and more. Jeff Williams has helped equip us with the tools we need to communicate better, more clearly understand one another and how to productively work through disagreement and conflict. He has helped us develop our relational IQ and this has had a very positive impact on our business.
Landon Wade, Vice President, The Cerium Group LLC, Springfield, Ohio
Jeff has worked with our team both as a retreat facilitator and as a leadership coach. His vast experience in these areas has helped us build an “A” team that better understands each other’s strengths, and has helped each team member better understand how to more effectively communicate with other team members. Jeff’s approach to helping others build effective communication skills has played an important role in our team’s success and I am sure that it will help you too.
Mike McDorman, President, Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, Springfield, Ohio
It is a pleasure to recommend Jeff Williams as a Business Coach. He has significant gifts in analysis, assessment, teaching and facilitation of communication about strategic vision. All of this together has made a profound impact in communication and strategic cooperation for our clients and vision for the future. He has helped us as partners to identify and develop leadership strengths. As partners we have become better communicators and have learned to appreciate and leverage each other’s natural gifts that accompany our temperaments. Jeff is extremely insightful and uses his additional gifts as a counselor to help many in our community in both professional and personal relationships. I continue to hear additional positive testimonies from others. If you have the opportunity to learn from him don’t miss the chance!
