What makes Christian coaching different? It's more than a moral foundation--it's helping others discover their calling (a commission from God for others) instead of just helping them have a happy life in the here and now. It's talking with Jesus in the coaching conversation, working from a set of core Christian values, using prayer as an action step, and much more. These books show you how to coach in a way that is uniquely Christian.

Using coaching for spiritual formation delivers some truly important benefits compared to traditional approaches. Much spiritual formation today involves a lot of listening to teaching, memorizing scripture and fill-in-the-blank bible studies--in other words, a very telling-oriented approach that tends to produce disciples who are passive recievers.

There's a better way! Faith Coaching shows you how to leverage the power of coaching conversations to create active, engaged disciplines who want to grow. For all the spiritual disciplines, when adults get to set their own objectives and create patterns that work for them, they feel more honored and engage the process more deeply. If you love to work with your clients' relationship with God or their inner life, Faith Coaching is a great book for you!
