Why Churches Use Coaches to Propel Ministry Forward

Getting a group of people on the same page is no easy task.  Visionary, mission-oriented meetings are difficult to run, and keeping the main thing the “main thing” can be exhausting, especially if you’re a stakeholder.

Because it can be a daunting prospect, congregations involved in development, Planting Hope initiatives, and the Growing Young process have chosen to utilize a coach to make sure that they don’t get stuck in the weeds of the changing ministry landscape.  Group coaching can be an effective way to help a council, team, or ministry committee coalesce around their common goal.

Interested in helping your team gel and get about the task at hand?  A coach can help you build vision, create action, and do what God is calling you to do! Learn more at NC Synod Coaching!
