Meet Mike Weaver

Pastor | Leadership and Influence Coach

For Mike, coaching is more than a job.  It’s a calling.

He’s on a mission to develop leaders into highly influential people. 

He is the first and only certified Keller Influence Professional in Columbus, Ohio and the only ELCA Pastor with this certification, director of Nine Seventeen Coaching, and serves as the Coaching Coordinator for the Southern Ohio Synod in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.  He also serves as pastor at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Gahanna, Ohio.

Mike and his wife, Darcy, live with their three boys in Columbus, Ohio.

"Mike is an extraordinary listener, which makes him an excellent coach. During our sessions, Mike inspired me to connect my intrinsic values, my motivation, my past experiences and my goals to generate action. With Mike as a coach, I had tremendous personal insights, and increased my personal awareness, spurring me to take charge of my personal and professional life...I give Mike my highest recommendation both as a one-on-one coach and as a team-coach."

"I went to Mike Weaver for coaching on how to narrate audio books in different voices, such as "engaging", "upbeat", etc...He helped me get "into" both my audience's head and heart and the head and heart of the character I am portraying...he also helped me to differentiate the characters [of a book being narrated] and bring them to life in ways that I would not have expected or anticipate otherwise. While you may not be narrating audio books, you will find Mike helpful in dealing with your boss, your employees, and your customers in the same way that he helped me to relate to my audience, my characters and my authors."
