Here's how this Works

I’ve been doing this for a very long time, and I believe in the process. Let’s have one 30-minute conversation. I’ll help you find some clarity, and together we’ll come up with some solutions you can use to make a difference right away.

There will be no charge for our session, and you are under no commitment. I’m just here to help.

If, after we talk, you decide to go further with my full coaching program, that’s up to you, but there’s no obligation.



5 by 5

interjection: a radio communications expression that means "loud and clear."

Five big ideas, each with five actions you can put into practice right away.

Each week we'll have a 30-60 minute conversation over the phone or in person. During the first part of each of our talks, I'll check in with you, answer any questions you have about the program in particular or life in general, and make sure you're on the right track. After that, I'll give you one of the 25 action steps to work on, make sure you understand the assignment, and give you what you need in order to apply the ideas to a life that makes a difference.

In addition to our weekly sessions, I'll also be available for unlimited email communications. I'm here to help.

Everything starts with a deeper connection to God. See Spirit at work in your life, and you're on your way to a life that works.


Figure out who you are, what you stand for, and why you're here. Make room to grow past old ideas and into a new identity.


Learn how to ask for help, to see the teachers life has given you, and to live in authentic gratitude for each moment.


We're all in this together. Use what God has given you to make a difference in the world. Be part of the solution.


There's something you can do today, and tomorrow, and from now on, to make the dream come true. The journey begins now.

5 by 5 is a 25-week coaching program that will give you guidance and accountability, and help you build a meaningful life.

Working with Dieter has changed my life. I am more intentional and focused, closer to God and the people I love. Most importantly, I'm happy.

It's Nice to Meet You

I'm a third-generation minister. Over the years I've taught and spoken all over the place. You may have read some of my books, listened to my podcast, or seen me at church.

No matter what I'm doing, I'm on fire about finding ways to take spiritual ideas beyond the traditional church setting. I think that for something to be truly meaningful, it has to apply to everybody, not just people in one specific situation or community.

I am here to help you find a life that you love, one that feeds you instead of making you feel tired. We’re all in this together. When you win, so does the world.
