Like many before you, God has been bringing people to you for years – people seeking direction, in need of encouragement, or sometimes just asking for advice. You knew you were called to help, but you didn’t have a name for it.

Now you do: “Coaching

Our Christian coach training programs give you the skills to expand your calling and natural gifts, equipping you to transform lives.

Are You Ready To Be a Coach?

Great coaching requires three key elements:

Competence

Just because you think you can coach doesn't mean you actually have what it takes.

You have to develop the skills.

Confidence

Having the skills isn't enough on it's own. You will have to learn to trust the coaching process.

You have to know you have what it takes.

Credibility

The people you coach need you to help them move forward, and they'll be relying on you.

They have to know you have what it takes.

When you earn the Certified Christian Leadership Coach (CCLC) designation from Coach Approach Ministries, you can have full confidence that you have the skills to coach in a way that is truly valuable and consistent with the best practices in the coaching industry, the principles of Christianity, and your own calling to transform lives.

Copy of What I Learned from being Fat

  In my work with leaders and organizations, trust is a perineal topic of coaching sessions.  This focus makes sense.  After all, when an organization is trying to perform at a high level, trust is a necessary ingredient (perhaps THE necessary ingredient).  Why?  Because the need for trust is everywhere.  It’s a factor in communication,

Silence Inner Critic

  Tell me if this voice sounds familiar: “You’re out of your depth.” “You’re going to look like a fool.” “They aren’t going to like you if you do that.” This voice in your head is your inner critic. Everybody has one. The inner critic tends to exaggerate, but there is enough truth (and maybe

What I Learned from being Fat

  Warning: this is not a blog post on weight loss.  You’ll need to look elsewhere for that.  Instead, this is a reflection about what I learned from steadily gaining weight over the course of about 15 years.  My hope is that what I learned might be helpful to others.  Again, I am NOT trying
