The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy’s twelve-week self-assessment and empowerment course has helped a variety of people whose lives have been altered by sex-based felonies and other life interruptions. This unique personal and life coaching system has enabled them to recover control of their lives and reclaim their places in society. Read what they have to say about the different components of the Academy.


We offer coaching that helps individuals focus on personal accountability and relearn appropriate actions and societal behaviors. We help them establish new boundaries, create healthy family relationships, and learn how to integrate themselves into the safety and responsibility of our closed community. Once those benchmarks have been met, we begin the process of helping them become part of society at large with a carefully thought out process that makes this reentry into the larger community as seamless and mutually beneficial as possible.


Although, the P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy was designed to meet the needs of a specific set of people, we also design each course to meet the needs of each individual person. There are a wide range of reasons why someone might end up on the sex offender registry. The circumstances surrounding this inclusion vary from person to person and so do the solutions we offer. Through personal and group interactions, we cater to the specific requirements that ensure each individual makes the best progress for their situation and experiences the best possible outcome. All communication shared in our safe, secure community is confidential. It will never be shared with any person, entity, or organization. Period.


At the P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy, we foster a team environment that promotes inner community wholeness and outer community wellness. We take constructive, practical steps to ensure our clients learn to partner with each other, build, or rebuild, their self-esteem, pursue gainful, fulfilling employment, continue or complete their education, and build wholesome family bonds. This produces a greater individual and a stronger community.

I can say this with confidence because I am an example of how Pastor Anderson’s Life Coaching has truly helped me change! I was incarcerated at a seemingly young age, age, nineteen, and spent 2 years and 3months prison. During this time, I participated in many programs and none of them had been as effective as the P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy to aid my family and now I moved on from my unfortunate circumstances.  

John – Ohio

My husband made a bad choice and was constantly reminded about it, in the sense that that those who were “helping” did nothing to empower him to be successful out in society but more so had been about recognizing the wrongs that he had done, and due to that focus it set barriers on his life’s possibilities. Pastor Anderson walked us through our difficult times and helped us understand how we needed each other’s support more than ever.  

Melinda – New Hampshire

This is what I was looking for, someone to understand and guide me. It was at this moment that I begin to retrain the way that I thought about myself and others. The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy showed me that there were possibilities and that I had the option to explore them in a manner that was going to help me overcome the past and more forward in a positive light in the future. That was my chance at redemption and I thank Pastor Anderson for helping make it possible.  

Kevin – New York City

When I tell people about my vision to be a better person, it is no longer described as a vision but a life plan! When I tell people now about my desire to live the life that I have come to know, through Pastor Anderson’s life coaching, people can see it! I’ve become much better person in my way of thinking and it has had a better impact on those around me because of the coaching I received.  

Chris - Utah

I was a man who was fighting against the status quo of the prison environment yet, I have been open to being coached in order to become more functional and whole man. As a result of this I am experiencing healthier relationships with love ones, with other former inmates and most importantly with myself. This is a concept that I’m glad I took part in. If you were like me, Pastor Anderson is just the right person to help you along the way.  

Anthony - Utah

Pastor Larry Anderson is one of the best in the business. As a life coach he is generous with his knowledge and constructively critical in his praise. As my life coach he taught me to think outside the box and to listen to my heart whenever my head got in the way. My time with Pastor Anderson opened up new resonances in communicative skills and has changed the way that I work and interact with others. As a R.S.O, I was able to combine the knowledge I gained with my time with Pastor Anderson to help those around me overcome also.  

Brian - Nantucket

The main word that comes to mind about Pastor Anderson's coaching is "courageous." He consistently and artfully offered steps, insights, and ideas that stretched me. It would have been easier for some coaches to just go along, but Pastor Anderson provided the leadership I needed to press forward - and that's what I needed him to do. As a result, I now have a greater willingness to stand up tall and strong for what I believe are the best strategies in situations throughout my work and life.  

Victor– New York City

Pastor Anderson is easily the most uplifting person I know. It truly is a gift of his, and I'm definitely one of his beneficiaries. I know that this coaching relationship is the key ingredient I've been missing for years, and I can see how my success "momentum" will continue gaining steam as we keep examining and evaluating what's working & what's not to get me on my feet again. Thank you Pastor!  

Riccardo – New Jersey

I'm writing this testimonial for Pastor L. Anderson because he has been one of most important "forces" in the transformation of my life from being asleep to being awake. Pastor Anderson came into my life at the time when I thought the world was against me because of my mistake. He was so full of energy, life and commitment for the work he was doing; I couldn't help but be caught up in his passion.  

Jack - California

It was only by good fortune being a first-time inmate that I was directed to Pastor Larry Anderson’s P.O.W.E.R Coaching Academy after I served my time. I was completely unprepared for my jail time and surprised by the structured jail life. Everyone can change and I appreciate how Pastor Anderson guided me and my family along in my times of need. He became more than a “life coach, he became a friend. Thank you Pastor.  

Casper - Idaho

I thank God Almighty for allowing Pastor Larry to come our way! When my son completed his prison sentence, he was really not himself. Very disinterested in starting over because he was angry. But we heard about P.O.W.E.R. by accident, yet it was on time and on purpose! He helped my son believe again and now, new doors are opening for him. And it’s all because Pastor Larry helped him see the bright side!  

Natalie - Charlotte, NC  

Upon my release, a fresh start wasn’t realistic. Constant reminders of my past wouldn’t let me work towards a better future. I considered giving up….on life and on God! I grew up in church and made a mistake, but it seemed like the church had forgotten about me. That’s when someone told me about a guy she’d met years prior. I looked him up and I’m SO glad I did. Pastor Anderson cares about us. GENUINELY!  

Marcus – Charleston, SC  

To say that Pastor Larry Anderson has been a blessing to me would be an understatement. My husband was able to regain his place in society as a man, a man who’s still valuable. Yes, he now knows that not everybody is your friend. But had it not been for Pastor Larry helping him see what’s important, I may have lost him! This program and all that it offers has and will save many lives!  

Chaeronea– Eastport, MD    

Being behind bars, I had a lot of time to think. I wasn’t proud of what happened that brought me to prison, but I wanted another chance. I’ve seen too many people give up on life because of bad mistakes. And I just needed a little boost to keep me from succumbing to the surrounding negativity. Pastor Anderson did that for me! He’s a great mentor! And he really believes in 2nd chances! I’m grateful.  

Luis – Memphis, TN  

We tried other programs to help my baby brother regain focus. Spent money and time. It was all a waste. At our wits end, we decided P.O.W.E.R. Coaching would be the last straw. I’m relieved to say that it has been NOTHING BUT a positive change for my brother. The opportunity to receive another chance should never be taken for granted! I’m so glad that Mr. Anderson allowed my brother to experience his!  

Belinda – Duluth, GA   

I’m a proud poster child for Pastor Larry’s coaching program! Being on the registry 9½ years, I saw more than enough reasons to give up on life! But this man saved my life! He helped me become the right kind of man and assured me that my mistakes didn’t have to overtake me, but mature me. I can’t imagine where I’d be if he hadn’t stepped in and been a friend and mentor when he did.
