If you are serving others and feel like the life changes they are implementing move at a glacial pace, discover how coaching can make a tremendous difference. In today’s episode, you’ll hear how one pastor added coaching to his ministry toolkit and experienced the following results and more: 

  • Replaced the monotony of pastoral care meetings with the excitement of leaning on the Holy Spirit to direct him as to what to say and when to say it.
  • Released the pressure of always giving the right answers, and instead, learned how to ask powerful questions.
  • Relinquished control of the outcome and let God transform lives.
  • Reinvigorated his passion for pouring into people.
