Podcast: Starting a Coaching Culture in Your Church

Episode #70

 

Chuck Gohn is the Senior of a small, independent, non-denominational church on the north side of Pittsburgh. For the last two years, Chuck has been attempting to implement a coaching culture as part of the overall discipleship model for the church.
Reach Chuck at bellevuechristian.church or chuckpgohn@gmail.com.
Challenges of implementation:
  • People don’t “get” coaching or reject as trendy.
  • Because of relational aspect, women gravitate to coaching more than men.
Joys of implementation:
  • High Impact low investment of time. Very good ministry for a person with not a lot of time but has the desire to contribute in a significant way.
  • Takes away the excuse for people not growing in their faith.
  • Small groups have validity, but a person can hide for years. Coaching places them in a growth position
Advice for implementing coaching in the local church.
  • Some are not coachable (need to be creative, resourceful, whole)
  • Take it slow. Don’t advertise a coaching workshop. Hand pick a few people and begin coaching them.
  • Celebrate wins. Get a cheerleader.
  • Require your potential coaches to be coached
