“A coach is someone who cares that people create what they say they want; that they follow through when they choose. The coach is there to hold people accountable and keep them moving forward toward their dreams and goals.”
– Co-Active Coaching
What is the our process for Coaching?
Our entire process is collaborative, combining the desires of the church, the church staff member being coached and the our team.
- Initial Consultation – This is our first point of contact with you. This time is designed for us to get to know you and hear about your concerns/issues as well as allowing you to get know our team. This is a valuable and important step for us as we begin to formulate a coaching plan for you. This is usually done via phone call or video conference.
- Staff orientation – We meet with staff members who are going to be coached and clearly identify what our coaching plan will look like.
- Onsite visit – We spend a day with church staff members and key volunteers to identify the specific areas of need.
- Choose your coaching plan and “stones” – This step is where your coaching plan comes to life as we work together to create concrete actions plans and steps to take moving forward.
- Covenant agreement – Student Ministry Solutions works within the framework of Christian community. Therefore, we pursue covenants, not contracts. We ask the pastor and youth worker to enter into a covenant of shared ministry expectations for the duration of our coaching.
- Coaching begins – After our visits and covenant agreement is in place we begin implementing your coaching plan. Your weekly coaching plan will always include a weekly Google hangout and weekly “Encouragment Drills” email customized for you and your coaching plan.
Now that you’ve gotten a brief overview, we would love to talk more about how we can partner with you.Let’s talk!
