CHC offers certified coaching to individual ministers to help them create a roadmap for personal and professional development. CHC coaches guide ministers through strategic and goal-setting exercises to achieve better results in both their personal and professional environments. Whether a minister is hoping to increase effectiveness inside the church or enhance the quality of life beyond their congregational duties, coaching is a remarkable tool for helping bridge the gap between aspiration and reality.
What Are the Benefits of Clergy Coaching?
By cultivating and boosting a minister’s existing skills, resources, and creativity in a safe and challenging environment, coaching is the perfect way to explore a variety of professional and personal possibilities as well as articulate new goals.
CHC offers a personalized approach to coaching with programs designed around each minister’s individual needs and intentions. By helping ministers become more strategically focused while also energizing their sense of purpose and satisfaction, coaching provides significant benefits to congregations. Happier and more focused ministers are better able to serve congregations for long, productive tenures.
What Does the Clergy Coaching Process Look Like?
Most coaching takes place with a carefully matched professional coach in 1-2 telephone meetings per month. For a cost-effective way to support your minister, coaching is one of the most direct and valuable services of the Center.
Do I Need Clergy Coaching?
Bringing in a coach does not mean that there is something wrong with your clergy members. Just as in sports, a coach is meant to guide you to perform at your highest level and lead you to victory. Clergy coaching is often used by the most successful churches as a proactive tool to help keep their church in alignment with their community’s and congregation’s needs.
CHC Coaches are trained to work alongside clergy and others who seek to address issues such as:
- Vocational call
- Conflict resolution
- Clarity of personal mission and vision
- Project implementation
- Vocational or life transitions
- Options for spiritual formation and/or personal growth
