Learn to provide space and have conversations that help people grow and flourish
Have you experienced the benefits of coaching and want to bless others by developing your skills? Does it bring you joy to see others learn and grow through deep conversation?
The Coaching Course will help you develop your skills, and experience how others grow by thinking out loud instead of just being told the answers. Learn how to be fully present, ask great questions and give space in which others flourish as they discover new insights.
Imagine what discipleship, leadership, pastoral care, teaching and mission would look like if people were encouraged and empowered to be all that God is calling them to be!
