Coaching is an engaging and energizing process that helps participants become UNSTOPPABLE!

What is Coaching? Coaching assumes a certain level of health and well-being – it is NOT counseling.  It doesn’t assume expertise or experience – it is NOT mentoring or advising.  The main premise is that the Coachee has all the answers within themselves.  A coach uses their innate curiosity, ability to listen and coaching training to help the Coachee shift perspective, identify obstacles or limiting beliefs, and regain momentum in order to move toward their goals or desires.

How will Coaches be utilized by the Conference?   We need our team of Coaches to deploy all across the Conference to facilitate (sometimes difficult) discussions; work with program participants to take what they’ve learned and make positive changes in their mission fields; and generally, help people become healthier, more engaged Disciples of Jesus Christ.

Coach Training Opportunities – locations & times to be announced.
