What is coaching?

Coaching is a one-on-one relationship focused on life and leadership transformation. While it includes all the benefits of counseling, mentoring and accountability, coaching is more holistic. MCI's coaching engages the Holy Spirit and applies a systematic approach to achieve success in one's spiritual life, personal discipline, leadership advancement, optimum health and priority management.

Why get coached?

Christians are called to excellence in life and ministry. 1st Timothy 4:12 says to "...set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." Coaching provides a framework to assess, develop and grow these key areas. The outside perspective and direct approach from your coach will allow you to eliminate blind spots and receive expert counsel, direction and encouragement.

How does it work?

Your coaching begins with behavioral assessments, an introduction to coaching tools and a two-hour session with your coach. You will discuss goals, your current reality and develop key objectives for your experience. You will then participate in two, 30-minute calls each month.

Additionally, you may take advantage of onsite opportunities to supplement your one-one-coaching. From team building to strategic planning, your coach provide growth opportunities in all areas of life and leadership.

The Experience

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]ransformational coaching is characterized by these elements: Clarity, Challenge and Care. At Ministry Coaching, our coaching team of seasoned, ministry veterans work with vocational ministry leaders in one-on-one coaching relationships to provide personal growth experiences for real life and leadership change. We emphasize the application of Scripture and connectivity with Christ – combined with real, strategic, management and leadership wisdom – and trust God for the results.

We believe that the coaching relationship will be unlike any relationship you’ve had. While our coaches possess significant ministry insight and demonstrated success, our coaching is not all about introducing you to “our way” of doing things, or latests and greatest system, tool, or resource.

Coaching Convictions

Our coaching convictions can be summed up like this –

  1. Connection with the heart of Jesus is primary  — We grow in intimacy with Jesus and find identity in him as a precursor to any doing or improving.
  2. Defining purpose and calling is foundational — We must develop these and live them out to achieve satisfaction and maximum impact in our personal and professional lives.
  3. We meet clients in their journey, wherever that might be  — We are students of a client’s true need and adaptable in our coaching approach, using our various skills and experience to help them grow.
  4. We provide quality coaching and care with generosity — We are ministers first and foremost, and care primarily about ministry leader health. This commitment to service will impact our business model and it, not finance or profitability, will be our main driver.
  5. Our vibrant life will encourages yours  — We will live out vibrancy and joy in the faith. This way, we can give away what we possess, be “guides” on the faith journey and be purveyors of hope.
  6. The development of vision, rigorous planning and diligence in execution are essential to sustained success  — We will keep leaders accountable in these areas, trusting that commitment to them will be honored by God and reflected in ministry impact.

Commitment to these principles allows us to meet you, the client’s, true needs. We dive into your world and as your trusted friend and advocate, walk with you to sharpen your life and leadership in the areas YOU feel are most important. As we walk together, you will likely experience significant and lasting improvement in these areas –

  • Spiritual Strength
  • Personal Discipline
  • Leadership Skill Advancement
  • Optimal Health
  • Priority Management & Balanced Living

The Process
The standard coaching experiences begins with an  initial two-hour coaching session followed by two 30-minute phone sessions each month. Many leaders choose to incorporate a face-to-face growth experience before they begin their coaching. A combination you might be interested could include a personal life-planning retreat day with your coach or an intensive personal adventure retreat to get to know yourself and your coach before you begin.
