Professional supervision is a “relationship between two or more disciples who meet to consider the ministry of one or more of them in an intentional and disciplined way. Such an arrangement allows each person being supervised to give an account of their work, to explore their responses, review their aims and develop their strategies and skills” (Leach and Patterson, 2015. Pastoral Supervision. p.1).
Professional supervision has been defined as the following:
• regular, structured, and intentional conversations between supervisor and supervisee
• focused on work and practice
• paying attention to the supervisee’s current context
• within the framework of a shared theological, spiritual, ethical, and legal understanding
• paying attention to issues of fitness to practice, skill development, management of boundaries, professional identity, and the impact of work upon all concerned parties including the individuals and communities the supervisee serves and leads. (Australian Baptist National Baptist Supervision Framework, 2021).
We “enter into an intentional relationship to reflect on our ministry practice, so that we are able to draw out and discover what God is calling us to do and be” (Professional Supervision: A Guide for Clergy and Lay Ministers, p.8).
How does professional supervision work?
A typically professional supervision session runs for up to 90 minutes. Sessions may be face-to-face, on Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime, or a mixture. Dr. Graham Joseph Hill can offer professional supervision no matter where you are in the world!
Endorsements for Graham’s Professional Supervision, Mentoring, and Coaching
“Graham became my mentor when I held two significant roles with little support. Graham’s profound insights into human nature, sensitivity to Asian and immigrant cultures, and understanding of healthy ministry operations – paired with gentleness, faith, and maturity – have strengthened my leadership and given me the support needed during hard times.
Associate Pastor, Epping Church of Christ
Steward, Online Bible College
“I recommend Graham to anyone looking for a coach, supervisor, or mentor. Graham can listen to the said and unsaid, challenge where needed, and ask the appropriate questions. Additionally, his experience in ministry and leadership, combined with his strong yet gentle demeanour, makes his supervision, mentoring, and coaching enriching and purposeful. My time with Graham has always been incredibly beneficial.”
Mako Van Der Moezel
Senior Pastor, Broome Baptist Church
“Leadership can be lonely, so finding people who can help you as a leader is critical. I have found Graham to be a fantastic listener. When I am ready to listen, he can prompt, guide, or change my thinking by delving into his own experiences and those of others he has coached and studied. Best of all, though, is the gracious heart and sense of joy Graham conveys as he quietly considers and reacts to whatever complex matters I am navigating. I leave every session uplifted and renewed.”
CEO, Stanton Dahl Architects
“Graham is a very experienced pastor, academic, and leader. Someone of this calibre can easily come with a top-down attitude. But Graham is approachable, wise, and very socially and culturally aware. I greatly value his guidance, which has led to a more contemplative and joy-filled walk with Jesus.”
Pastoral Worker, Rise Alliance Church
Founder, Asians Between Cultures
“What I appreciated from Graham’s mentoring was his honesty. He was always happy to honestly share his ministry experiences – the good, the bad, and the ugly – and what he had learned from these times. It made my ministry feel ‘normal’, and Graham’s advice, born from experience, was invaluable as I navigated my own story. I highly recommend Graham’s expertise.”
