Coaches Training Session 5

Over the past 5 weeks I’ve been posting video training sessions for ministry coaches.  In this final installment I share how to deal with that difficult leadership responsibility of confronting others.   We look at Galatians 6 and identify three questions we must ask before we confront.   I hope you’ve enjoyed these sessions and found them helpful in your own leadership.  Please feel free to copy the embed codes and use freely in your own organization.

Coaches Training Session 3

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been posting training sessions for ministry coaches.  Session 1 we looked at The Heart of a Coach.  Session 2 covered how to do a One on One coaching session.  Now in session three I talk about how to lead a coaches huddle.  Huddles are nothing new, however the biggest complaint you’ll hear is “nobody wants to come to my huddle”.  I totally agree, no one wants to come if it adds no value to the leader.  However I’ve watched coaches over the years who’ve created meaningful, highly interactive, huddles that added great value to their leaders.  Success and sustainability are all in the execution.   If you do huddles poorly leaders will not attend.  If you do them well they will love you for making the investment.

Coaches Training Session 1

I believe the role of coach is the most underrated position in the local church today. I know many small group ministries use coaches, but I think it’s important for every ministry to identify key people who can serve as coaches to the leaders in their area.

About a year ago we shot some videos for ministry coaches at Seacoast Church. Since summer is a time to recruit new coaches for the upcoming ministry season, I thought it’d be a good opportunity to put these videos out so others can use them to train coaches in their ministry. I will post all five sessions over the next five Wednesdays.

Coaching: Helping Leaders go Further Faster

I was in Palm Springs recently when I had the opportunity to meet with Dave DeVries  of OC US Ministries.  Dave has been a church planter and today coaches church planters around the world.  He has extensive experience as a certificated coach so I asked Dave in this short video to give us some practical insights on coaching those we lead.  You can follow Dave on Twitter @davedv and check out his blog at  Before you push play on the video make sure you get out a pen and paper so you can take notes!
