Norma Quinn, Coach/Leader


The Academy of Artful Leadership helps gifted leaders continue to grow through hosted conversations around key themes in ministry, peer learning, and individual coaching. The outcome is greater clarity and calculated movement toward transformational congregational leadership.

The Academy utilizes a “coach approach” process, which means that instead of relying on instruction from a teacher or prescriptions from a consultant, a coach helps to mine the expertise and internal wisdom of congregational leaders. This “coach approach” process helps leaders discern the God-sized things that need to happen, develop a plan to get there, and celebrate with them when they do.

  • Spiritual Leadership — How to remain a life-giving adaptive and spiritual leader.
  • Adaptive Leadership — Best practices for connecting with the mission field around you.

Dr. Norma Quinn entered the ministry in answer to God’s call to bring wholeness to people wherever she could.  Previously she spent several years in public accounting, and in private enterprises such as a financial advisor and accountant. She has combined her business background with a desire to help people live out their Kingdom potential. Norma has served the United Methodist Church in large and medium-sized churches, and has successfully led congregations through financial campaigns, and multi-million-dollar capital campaigns that were only possible through the leading and empowerment of the Holy Spirit.  As Senior Pastor, her vision always was to help individuals and congregations see what joy there is in generosity and allowing God to direct the process.  After serving as the Conference Treasurer for the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church, Norma retired from the Conference and is devoting her attention full time to her ministry at Horizons.  Her heart is in helping bring about health in congregations as they live out their call.
