Coaching has become one of the premier ministry tools to both light ministry fires and to stoke existing fires to burn brighter. Coaching closes the gap between a person’s current reality and their desired future. Coaching is forward thinking and allows for the opportunity to climb on the balcony for big picture views. Coaching is collaborative, supportive, and challenging.

Coaching can take on many forms. There is pure coaching (agenda set by the coachee), coaching for planters, coaching for transformation, coaching towards a specific process or outcome, worship coaching, and more.
