The P.O.W.E.R (People Offering Word Encouragement and Restoration) Coaching Academy is a culturally sensitive community for emotional, spiritual, and practical holistic living. It offers mutual respect, hope, and unlimited opportunity and access to education and career building as the means of reentering society. The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy is a twelve-week self-assessment and empowerment course for people whose lives have been altered by sex-based felonies and other life interruptions. The P.O.W.E.R. Academy is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for people who want to take control of their lives and productively reclaim their place in society.
Sex offender life coaching is different from other life coaching services. It does more than simply point one in the right direction. It holds men and women accountable for their prior actions, helps them manage life choices, and guides them in rejoining society in healthy, constructive, beneficial ways. We are building a team of coaches committed to encouraging, empowering, and helping restore the lives of people who are displaced by societal standards due to criminal history, incarceration and/or life-altering discontinuities.
The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy is a nontraditional, empowering holistic program designed to help men and women develop the skills and behaviors they need to reclaim and rebuild their lives. We help combat feelings of isolation by establishing a community. This community helps ex-felons socialize, build careers, and become self-sufficient. It teaches skills that easily transfer from its protective community to the societal community outside our doors. Our inner diversity mimics that of society at large. Our training in communication, leadership skills and development, conflict resolution, a solid work ethic, and self-responsibility provides a foundation for life and career success outside the safety of our walls.
This specialized adult life coaching requires a specific set of skills abilities, understanding, and compassion. Pastor Larry Anderson is the forward-thinking founder of Knowing the Registry. This innovative, two-part program educates church leaders and members on the benefits and rewards of building healthy relationships with reformed sex offenders. This program helps pastors and leaders have needed conversations with people who have succumbed to the lures and the pitfalls of sexual sin. Now he has founded the P.O.W.E.R. Coaching Academy – the first of its kind life coaching program exclusively designed for registered sex offenders and their supportive spouses and families.

The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy proves that coaching for people with sexual behavior issues can and does work. There is redemption. There is hope. There is help. The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy provides a path to all three.
