Coaching, as defined by organizations such as Coachnet, is "coming alongside someone to help a person realize his or her dreams." Missional coaching is coaching that helps a person his or her dreams for being used by God in reaching out to the world. Missional coaches "meet" with their coachees either in person or by phone, usually for an hour long session.

In these coaching relationships, the coach:

  • Helps the coachee celebrate positive "wins" in their lives
  • Helps the coachee work through challenges
  • Helps the coachee formulate personal and ministry plans
  • Helps the coachee stay on task on agreed upon goals
  • Prays for the coachee

Ministers, church planters, ministry leaders, and people who wish to receive help in missional or evangelistic outreach, ministry, or life are all great candidates for coaching. Coaching can help people do far more than together than they can do on their own.

Coaching is a spiritually based, powerful, and dynamic relationship, in which a deep friendship is usually formed as well. If you are interested in coaching, please look at the coaches listed on this site and find one that may be a good match for you.

  • A good coach is knowledgeable and experienced.
  • A good coach knows how to listen and truly cares for those with whom he is coaching.
  • A good coach helps a person achieve what he or she could not achieve on his or her own.

When you find a good match with a coach that will work for you, contact that coach. Together you will work out costs, meeting times, and agreed upon goals. We look forward to walking along with you, sharing in your hopes and dreams for God's mission!
