What People Are Saying
"This book is simply the sine qua non for anyone serious about faith coaching.
- Leonard Sweet, Drew Theological School, George Fox University

"FAITH COACHING is written for people who want to help others move forward in their faith journeys. Throughout the book, the authors reveal their passion for Christ, their hearts for evangelism and discipleship, and their love of coaching. Combining all three, this book applies coaching to the development of faith, to the glory of God."
-Linda Miller (MCC), Global Liaison for Coaching, Ken Blanchard Companies

"While I expected to learn new ways to impact others through coaching, FAITH COACHING has also been life-giving and faith-building for me personally. Written in a very personable style, sharing a theology of coaching, and offering numerous case studies, Im sure this will become a trusted resource for many who want to incorporate a coach approach to their life ministry. Im grateful to the authors: Chad, Bill and Kathryn, for their inspiration through the pages of this book to strengthen my own faith journey by coaching others on theirs.
- Jane Creswell (MCC), Managing Director, Purdue University Organizational Leadership Development Lab
