In 1990 Jim Ozier followed the founder of a 7-year-old church, Trietsch Memorial UMC in Flower Mound, Texas. In his role as the second pastor for this young congregation, he learned first-hand how difficult the transition of pastoral leadership can be when a church has never done it before!
In 2008 Jim Ozier felt God’s nudging to leverage his experiences and help pastors going through critical leadership transitions. He became a trained coach—networking closely with Jim Griffith Coaching, and with Path1 of the United Methodist Church.
Fiona Haworth is an active lay person in the UMC who brings a laity perspective to Ozier Coaching and specializes in church growth and culture. Fiona’s career has taken her across industries – energy, healthcare, airline – and across disciplines – strategic planning, employment branding, performance management, executive coaching.
As a key partner in Ozier Coaching, Fiona has conducted workshops and retreats for churches, districts, and Annual Conferences. She graciously shares her professional training within the church world that she loves.
