Coaching Skills for Ministry Virtual Seminar 

Each Wednesday from 4:00 - 5:00 pm ET

September 17; October 8, 22; November 5, 19; December 3, 17, 2014

“Coaching Skills for Ministry” is designed to equip pastors and ministry leaders with basic coaching skills that can be integrated and incorporated into their ministry setting.  Coach training can dramatically enhance the ministry leader’s effectiveness as a leader and greatly increase their impact within their faith community and the larger local community.  In addition, this training will prepare leaders to effectively coach each other in coaching partnerships among their peers.

Participants in this training will:

  • Gain a strong understanding of coaching and the distinction between coaching and therapy, consulting and mentoring.
  • Observe and debrief LIVE coaching sessions by the presenter.
  • Learn core coaching skills that can be incorporated into their work setting.
  • Have opportunities to practice these coaching skills and receive feedback.
  • Experience a combination of coaching theory and practice.
  • Learn a model for having a “coaching conversation.”
  • Receive a complimentary coaching session with one of our coaches.
  • Participate in a follow-up group coaching session 30 days after the training is completed. The intention is to provide support and accountability in the development of each participant.  A telephone conference call line will be used. 

1.5 CEU’s will be offered to those who have completed “Coaching Skills for Ministry.”
