Daryl McCray

Coaching Intercessor

Daryl provides an invaluable service to ILD as its Chief Intercessor and Spiritual Business Coach. Daryl is an ordained minister with his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Theology from North Carolina College of Theology. 

Daryl is Certified as an Emotional Healing Coach and a Life Coach lead to help others through emotional traumas, pain, and healing. At the age of 26, through a difficult personal trial, Daryl developed a personal relationship with God. Through this relationship, Daryl gained perspective and an appreciation for relational leadership, ultimately leading him to work as a Minister, Intercessor, and Spiritual Business Life Coach. 

Daryl has served in leadership positions and as a corporate trainer for over 25 years in the business and hospitality industries. Infusing a spiritual component along with his business knowledge, he is successful in helping managers become better leaders of people by understanding and applying biblical concepts. As a result, his guidance helps to create more harmonious work environments and greater productivity. 

In 2002, realizing his calling as a Minister, Daryl launched Restoration Ministries to mentor and equip individuals and businesses as a spiritual advisor. In 2018, he launched API Forces to further reach leaders in the seven spheres of influence as an Intercessor and Coach. API seeks to provide a spiritual covering of intercession and coaching for business owners to grow in their faith and for God to increase their influence in the marketplace. 

Daryl meets with ILD leadership every month to discuss issues and challenges. He also provides as-needed coaching or intercession to assist ILD with personal and business challenges.  ILD values his continued contributions to the organization and highly recommends Daryl’s services to other Christian business owners.

Everyone Is a JERK to Someone, Every Day


Painless Ways to Improve Communication with Individuals and Teams

Written by Rebecca M. Rhodes                    

Who Sounds More Like a Jerk to You?

Someone who hangs up before you are done talking.

Someone who stares out the window when you are speaking.

Someone who won’t let you forget your past mistakes.

Someone who justifies everything in response to a question.

We tend to judge ourselves by our intentions, while judging others by their actions. This often leads us to one thought... “Jerk!”

In Everyone Is a Jerk to Someone Every Day, communication expert and ILD President, Rebecca Rhodes, uses the Breakthrough Communication Model to explain how perceptions lead to misunderstandings that can be easily avoided.
