Joshua Cole

Certified Life Coach

Crestline, OH
Certified Life Coach
B.A. in Music Technology (Malone University)



Joshua Cole pastors Tabernacle of Praise in Crestline, OH. He and his wife, Audrey, are raising four beautiful children.

Teaching piano, music, and audio recording techniques since 2005, Joshua is an avid proponent of musical education and the fine arts. He earned his B.A. in Music Technology from Malone University in 2007. He has more than 25 years of music performance experience gigging with contemporary Christian, rock, country, and jazz musicians.

Joshua’s empowering leadership style has been key to preserving the legacy of Tabernacle of Praise through the departure of the church’s founder and senior leader of 30 years. The vibrancy, authenticity, and power of TOP has been sustained by his clear communication and servant leadership.

Joshua graduated from Emerge Ministries’ Certified Leadership Coach Program in February 2022 as a Certified Life Coach. He looks forward to more lessons learned and lives impacted as he influences people to grow emotionally, spiritually, and leadership.

As a lead pastor and former freelance musician, I know the struggle of leadership and personal growth. I experienced the power of coaching years ago as a young pastor leading a church in flux. My coach helped me to think through my challenges and inspired me to achieve my goals. Life coaching has been invaluable to me in my journey. I’d love to help you with yours.

Tona Kautz

Associate Certified Coach

Medellin, Colombia
Bachelor’s Degree, Church Leadership
Master’s Degree, Organizational Leadership
Master’s Degree, Clinical Psychology – current
Ordained Minister (Assemblies of God)


For 25 years I have worked in a variety of leadership roles with all ages, from children to adults. I often found myself asking questions to help people discover how they truly desired to grow. I love to encourage and motivate people to reach their goals and realize their potential. When I discovered coaching, I realized that it was a way to take my communication strengths and use them to help others as they navigate transition, go through difficult times, seek ways to improve themselves or set goals and next steps. As a certified coach, I have worked with college students as they navigate their transition into independence and adulthood. I have coached team leaders through staff changes and through strategies to align their teams towards a common vision. I have also coached a variety of adults as they make life decisions, work through relationship challenges, and find work/life balance.

Ideal Coaching Client  |  Ready to move towards their future. It takes courage to make decisions and to ask for help. Working with a coach can be a big leap into the unknown. I hope my clients will give themselves a chance to experience the support and positive growth that they can gain from coaching. I would be honored to work together as they take the next step!
