NC Synod Coaching
Gather + Connect + Support
The NC Synod Coach Taskforce is a leadership team who provides ongoing support to coaching ministry across the state. Our focus is to Gather, Connect and Support:
- Gather information about coaches and those seeking to be coached
- Connect those who are seeking a coach with those who are trained in this field
- Support coaches who are working with leaders in the synod and create training opportunities for those interested in being a coach
What is Coaching?
ELCA coaching is an interactive process between three people: the leader, the coach, and the Holy Spirit. Coaching trusts the Holy Spirit will guide, enlighten, and empower the process of self-discovery, marshal the needed resources to accomplish what is desired, and empower the change to achieve the desired results.
Coaching is about growth, change, and results. It believes that the answers to what a leader wants to do lie within the leader. The task of the coach is to draw those out by creating the opportunity for the “ah-ha” moments of discovery.
ELCA Coach Launch
With the help of CoachNet, the ELCA and the NC Synod Coaching Team provides training for this confidential one-on-one relationship with leaders in our congregations. Thirteen (13) new coaches were trained in November 2017. These new coaches join our previously trained cohorts to make an outstanding team.
The next ELCA Coach Launch training will be November 6-7, 2019 at the synod office in Salisbury. For more information, check out the ELCA Coach Launch Brochure NC or contact Pastor Charlie Zimmerman with questions.
