An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Jeffrey Taylor

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.

After 33 years as a lead pastor, I decided I wanted to launch out, spread my wings, and use my gifts to broaden my opportunities for adding value to people’s lives. My 22 years of familiarity with John Maxwell’s compelling leadership tools eventually led me to join the John Maxwell Team. Prior to my 33 years in full time ministry I graduated from Texas Tech University with a B.A. in History and Asbury Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity. As a John Maxwell Team member I consult with various leaders, using character driven principles to help them raise their level of self awareness, improve their leadership capabilities, add value to others, and realize their full potential.  I understand the issues related to leadership. My long experience as a pastor leading a non profit organization has sharpened my leadership skills, given me empathy, and allowed me to answer the most pertinent questions leaders face today. Contact me. I’m looking forward to helping you become all you were created to be.



The experiences I have with Jeff arose from when he led a John C. Maxwell MasterMind group which I was a part of. His conversational abilities as a facilitator are incredible, as his intentionality regarding pointed questions throughout the MMG truly helped me grow; both as a person, as well as a business owner. For anyone who is seeking a breakthrough, or looking at gaining that slight competitive edge over the competition in any arena of life, Jeff Taylor can greatly assist in evoking these attributes from individuals under his tutelage.

"As the Executive Director of the Plainview/Hale County EDC and chairman of the Administrative Board of my church I am always looking to improve my leadership skills. I have had some exposure to the John Maxwell principals of leadership, but no formal training. When Jeff Taylor, who is my pastor offered to instruct a group of church leaders on the Maxwell principals I was eager to participate. In leading our group Jeff was very knowledgeable and professional in his presentation. The information I received while attending the group has been beneficial to me in my personal and professional life. Mike Fox, Executive Director Plainview/Hale County EDC. Plainview, TX"

Jeff is passionate and worked to coach and lead our team through the 21 laws of leadership course. He was enthusiastic about the information and my team found him to be very informative. I really appreciated his leadership in this session.

Jeff is one of the best speakers I’ve ever heard. Every time I have invited him over the years he has brought crucial things our organization needed - a combination of time-tested leadership principles and fresh new ideas, all presented in an effective combination of passion, humor, and in-your-face challenge. His coaching has helped me overcome barriers and increase my sales. My mindset improved immediately and the transformation continues! As far as I’m concerned, Jeff is the guy on leadership. Wilson Williams ( Bankers Life

We had been struggling with staff issues for some time. Jeff motivated us to work together more closely and to be a team.. 
I highly recommend Jeff to any organization. His ability to move and lead us into taking positive actions gave us a lot of strength to move forward. Jeff has the ability to shed new light into sometimes hopeless situations.
