Are you interested in investing in someone's life by becoming a volunteer Christian coach?

A Christian coach moves a person to draw from his or her own resources of experiences—helping the person learn instead of teaching them. A coach will draw out of a person what God has put in him or her. Coaching is the art and practice of enabling individuals to move from where they are, to where God wants them to be in the Christian journey.

How do I know if I am a coach candidate?
To help you determine if you have what it takes to become a coach, use this simple assessment. Be honest in your responses. Read each statement and respond as objectively as possible.

  1. I have been listening intently, asking pointed questions and encouraging others as a preferred way.
  2. I always respond this way…it extends beyond work life. I often do it in addition to my current job, sometimes even instead of performing well in my current job.
  3. I can see the benefit of and enjoy having structured conversations in order for others to take effective intentional action.
  4. I am inclined to make fine distinctions in language to clarify meaning.
  5. I naturally put my own agenda aside in deference to the person I am talking to at the moment.
  6. I naturally see patterns in behavior that others don’t see.
  7. I recognize and can share trends that result in others being more effective.
  8. I naturally value and prefer to invest in people and relationships rather than in equipment, tasks or projects.
  9. I have a keen awareness for underlying strengths, or what is not said, and for possibilities that are not yet realized.
  10. I have a natural fascination for human interaction and am a student of human behavior (this might include reading, seminars, etc. and is not limited to formal education or degrees).

If you agreed to these statements, you might be ready to become a volunteer Christian coach.
