Following up on the learning from our experience at NT-NL Leadership Convocation, we will be hosting an ELCA Coach Training event Monday-Tuesday, February 26-27, 8am-5pm both days. This will be an opportunity to learn more about coaching and begin the process (for those who desire) towards coaching certification. The event is limited in size and will be heavily subsidized by the ELCA and DiscipleLife Endowment Funds. The cost per person is only $100 for NT-NL members or $350 for all others. This cost will assist with materials and presenters and invites commitment from participants. (We have tentatively reached our limit of 15 registrants. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our waiting list.)
What is coaching?
Coaching is a process of coming alongside a person or team to help them discover God’s agenda for their life and ministry, and then cooperating with the Holy Spirit to see that agenda become a reality.
What is the coaching process?
Coaching is not about the Coach!!! It is a focused process in which the coachee, their community, and their goals are the center of the conversation. The coach is focused not on their needs or goals but on working with the coachee to discern their goals and develop plans and accountability to accomplish those goals. Coaching has been shown to enhance the effectiveness of ministry for both leader and community. Bishop Gronberg desires to partner with other synods around the ELCA to develop understanding about coaching and make this vital tool available to more leaders throughout our church.
Attend this two-day training event to learn, apply, and practice good coaching skills. Upon completion, you can become a Level I coach in the ELCA. After completing labs, you can become a Level II coach in the ELCA.
