Jill Monaco is the founder and CEO of Jill Monaco Ministries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has a passion to encourage people to pursue the presence of God. She is a speaker, best selling author, and certified life coach.
As a teacher and speaker, Jill is known for captivating audiences with her high-energy, humorous approach to life’s serious issues. Her faith-filled and transparent stories encourage listeners to become all that God has created and redeemed them to be.
Jill has developed Freedom Coaching®, a model that blends prayer and coaching tools. Her first book The Freedom Coach Model went to #1 on the Amazon bestseller list.
The ministry serves singles by publishing the online magazine, SingleMatters.com. Jill is also the creator of the interactive program for singles, From Looking To Loving: Find the Breakthrough You Need So You Can Have The Relationship You Want.
Jill also hosts the podcast, The Jill Monaco Show: Conversations that inspire you to love well. Episodes touch on various aspects of our lives including relationships, business, faith, health, personal growth, and singleness. Sometimes discussions are deep and sometimes funny because life is both.
Jill has been featured on LIFE Today with James and Betty Robison and spoken to audiences of thousands about the need for Bible translation. She’s been featured on Boundless Podcast (Focus on the Family) and has taught webinars for singles with Christian Mingle.
Her eclectic career includes 20 years as a professional stage, commercial, voiceover and TV actor. She also served in Christian ministry in various roles — as a worship director, and as director of artist relations and events, working with Christian recording artists.
Currently living in Chicago, Illinois, she looks forward to having her own family someday. Until then, she works very hard at earning the title of favorite aunt to her five nieces and nephews.
Jill has become a dear friend as we’ve worked together over the years, and I find her sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s desire to love and heal His children is only matched by her own love and care for people while walking with them on their journey toward freedom.Aaron Shust
