I've been coaching a pastor in Pennsylvania since September. In 2007, I will be coaching a church planter in Kansas. I've come to believe that having a coach is currently one of the best ways to be more effective as a pastor. Even as I coach, it helps me to be more discerning of how I need to focus my time and effort.

From Rev Magazine -- Here are some ways coaching can help strengthen discipleship and reinvent ministry.

  • Reframing ministry descriptions
  • Learning to measure what matters
  • Building collaborative learning groups
  • Creating trusted relationships
  • Finding support for transition and change
  • Creating accountable relationships
  • Developing discernment
  • Strengthening prayer partnerships
