About Coaching: Our goal is to help developing leaders discover their call and grow in character and competencies so they can effectively contribute to the growth of the Church worldwide. While there are various leadership development models, we believe one of the most effective is the coaching relationship. Coaching is focused on drawing out the potential that God has birthed in leaders, helping to bring them to a place of wholeness, fulfillment, and effectiveness in life and ministry.
We believe God uniquely created each person to become someone special and to do something exceptional. The coach honors the uniqueness of each individual and their calling by not assuming simply an advice-giving role. Coaches believe growing leaders can find their own answers but often need some help getting there. They also provide a supportive environment to help leaders discover what God has for them. This process will prepare developing leaders to find their own answers when the coach isn’t around.
A key distinctive of the coaching relationship is that those who are being coached are in the driver’s seat: they choose their own growth goals, think through their options, and decide on their next steps. The coach actively listens and asks reflective questions, offers support, and sensitively challenge their beliefs and behaviors. Advice-giving is kept to a minimum so that the developing leader can discover Holy Spirit-inspired solutions. As coaches walk alongside developing leaders, they help them to be intentional about their growth and discovery while motivating them toward excellence in their journey.
