For too long, Christians have taken a delivery approach to spiritual formation: we memorize key verses and snappy concepts to spring on our un-churched neighbors; we provide fill-in-the-blank study courses for believers who want to grow in faith; we strive to tell, teach and transfer what we know.

But there's a better approach. By using a conversational, coaching approach to spiritual formation, you can open wide the doors that help others expand their commitment to Christ. Easy to learn and to apply, the concepts in Faith Coaching help you to leverage the power of coaching conversations to help people find and follow a genuine spiritual path. Price $14.95

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."

"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.

Transformissional Coaching
Empowering Leaders in a Changing Ministry World

Look Inside! Read a chapter free!

Even leaders need leading. In this greatly changing world, ministry experts Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl have coined the phrase "transformissional" to define the unique type of inspired coaching they offer to spiritual leaders in need of fresh direction.

This book is a basic coaching how-to with an emphasis on church planting, coaching post-moderns and working with leaders. While it covers some of the same ground as other how-to books (like Coaching Christian Leaders or Leadership Coaching), it adds some valuable information on coaching missional leaders and post-moderns that is not found anywhere else. A good addition to a coaches library.
