Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

1 Peter 4:10

Dear Friends,

I’m thrilled to share that we’ve just expanded the services we’re able to offer you!

Please meet Sara Thingvold, Triune’s new Servant Leadership Coach. Sara has a wealth of training and experience in coaching and human behavior. Specifically, Sara is trained to help people strengthen their levels of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), as well as the happiness of their Family Systems.

Your ability to serve and lead well is directly influenced by your emotional health and the health of your families. That’s why I’ve partnered with Sara; to expand the support that Triune is able to provide to you as you strive to become the servant leader God created you to be, both at work and at home.

I’d love for you to get to know Sara. Below are a few words from her to facilitate your introduction. But please – feel encouraged to email Sara directly, and welcome her to the team!


From Sara:

“I began my coaching career in athletics, with 21 combined years of coaching within USAV and high school volleyball teams. Then, in 2007, as my family and I began preparing for my husband Greg’s first deployment, God called me to deepen my coaching capabilities. I stepped up to lead a multi state effort between Minnesota, Hawaii, and Washington State, which effectively synchronized family readiness support efforts for an Assault Helicopter Battalion’s 18 month deployment to the Middle East. The model became a template for other organizations to follow.

It was then that I discovered my deep passion for supporting others to serve well – which includes helping people keep themselves healthy and whole as they lift others up.

To help support others during that first deployment, I obtained my Practitioner and Mastery certifications, with an accreditation in wellness, through Learning Journeys the International Center of Coaching. The year after our second deployment, I then achieved my Narrative coaching certification from Learning Journeys. In 2009, I was invited to be an Assistant Facilitator at Learning Journeys (a partnership I still maintain). Most recently, I’ve become a Trained Leader of Gottman Institute’s 7 Principles of Making Marriage Work and Bringing Baby Home.

To Triune’s clients, I bring a trained and richly experienced understanding of human behavior and how that impacts your life and leadership.

On the personal side, my heart lies with my family. My husband Greg and I have been married 25 years. I’m a proud retired military spouse whose husband served 32 years in the Army National Guard. I’m also the mother to two young adult children, Derrick and Brooke Lynn. I love the outdoors, working out, and being intentional about deepening my own wellness.

Here are my areas of expertise:

  • Servant Leadership
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Extreme Self-Care (Mind-Body-Spirit Connection)
  • Family Systems (Family Portraits + Family Coaching)

Here are my services:

Here are my credentials:

  • Assistant Facilitator, Learning Journeys International Center of Coaching
  • Gottman’s Trained Leader, 7 Principals of Making Marriage Work and Bringing Baby Home
  • Practitioner, Master, and Narrative Coaching Certifications
  • A. Psychology, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

I agree with Mark 100%: building a culture of servant leadership – both at work and at home – is not soft, or easy! Yet, it’s thrilling, invigorating and extremely significant work.

I would love to support you to take your servant leadership to the next level, and truly become the servant leader God created you to be.”

I hope you can see why I am so excited to partner with Sara, to expand our offerings to better serve you on your journey of servant leadership and leading Jesus’ way.
