History The Dayspring Institute was founded in 2012 by Executive Director, Dr. Larry Gilliam, Ed.D., Ph.D. He has invested his life in church, education, and counseling ministry and recently developed a passion to provide an institute to minister to the ministering and provide coaching certification and resources.
Dr. Gilliam also leads a counseling center called Dayspring Counseling which provides counseling services in the Dallas / Fort Worth area.
We were inspired to name the organization "Dayspring" after a poetic verse in the first chapter of Luke which expresses our passion for ministry.
"Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." ~ Luke 1:78-79 (KJV)
Mission The Dayspring Institute strives to equip and encourage the ministering as their source and resource for faith based training.
Services The Dayspring Institute provides faith-based services for ministers, lay leadership, and business people who desire to further their ability to serve others.
The primary resource provided by Dayspring is the Life Coach Certification course. In developing the course, Dr. Gilliam pulled from his vast experience and personally developed models, sought out trusted advisors, and researched the most current life coach courses and publications. Dr. Gilliam’s passion to “minister to the ministering” has directed his desire to equip church leaders and prospective coaches through this innovative and inspiring course.
