Christian Life Coaching Handbook - Details

by Tony Stoltzfus

Read a Free Chapter

This sequel to the acclaimed book Leadership Coaching opens with an in-depth treatment of the foundations of life coaching. The premise: that the models we use to understand purpose must fit with the record of Jesus' life we find in the Gospels. Tony explores levels of God's purposes: that your call to be in communion with God comes first, then your life mission to be Jesus to the world, and last your temporal happiness. You'll look at concepts like finding your life in serving others, living toward heaven, seeking eternal rewards, the intimate bond with Christ's heart that forms through sharing his sufferings, and more. Examining purpose in the light of Jesus' life helps sort out the self-focused value system that has crept into much of our thinking on destiny.

In the second major section, the book presents a model for life purpose discovery based on five themes: Allegiance, Design, Passion, Preparation and Calling. By adding calling and allegiance to the more familiar exploration of our passions, nature (design) and nurture (preparation), this model roots the whole discovery process in obedience and being part of God's larger plan for creation.

The bulk of the Christian Life Coaching Handbook (retitled from A Leader's Life Purpose Handbook) is the presentation of a thorough, practical toolkit for coaching Christian leaders to discover their destiny. Each of the five major areas is explored using case studies and coaching dialogs interspersed with biblical examples and descriptions of powerful coaching techniques. The companion A Leader's Life Purpose Workbook lets you give clients or classes a book with the purpose model and all the exercises--a tremendous time-saver in the discovery process.

Stages on the Calling Journey
A second companion book is The Calling Journey, a look at the stages leaders go through on the road to fulfilling their call. This volume lays out a model of calling timelines with predictable valleys and transitions. Coaching the calling stage a person is in right now instead of using the generic approach makes a tremendous difference in coaching effectiveness.
