Sign up for free coaching session

Change through free coaching

20 days of free coaching will be available to all pastors and laity in The Michigan Conference starting Feb. 7. Sign up and start the year refreshed.

So, you made News Year’s resolutions and are already in the doldrums? Break through the lethargy with 20 days of free coaching offered by The Michigan Conference. Make 2020 a year of new beginnings by taking advantage of this opportunity.

In 2019 the Michigan Conference field staff chose coaching as a significant factor in the readiness of leaders to lead. Coaching is recognized as a solid foundation for growing strong organizations, creative leadership, and risk-taking initiatives. The Conference is creating a coaching culture in Michigan to enhance the quality of our Gospel faithfulness.

Coaching is a partner relationship. A coach supports, accompanies and challenges the one-being-coached to think differently and discover a new perspective. This, in turn, invites and initiates movement toward action. Coaching ministry leaders is a significant factor in developing vibrant congregations, bold and effective leaders, community ministries and daring missions.

Some Michigan Conference coaches are certified by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Many have provided coaching to professionals in ministry and congregations pursuing congregational renewal.

Other of our coaches are new to the profession and are working toward a professional certification through ICF. They need a specific number of coaching hours to become certified.

Michigan coaches are now available to provide this free-coaching opportunity.  Twenty days of free coaching are available; each session is 30 minutes long. The coaching sessions are open on February 7-26, 2020.
