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!

Coaching the Discipling Leader

by John Purcell

For a while now I have been using the term “Discipling Leader,” and I firmly believe it describes an idea that could change the church world. The simplest statement of the concept is this: Christian leaders in any ministry role inside or outside the church should have as one of their goals to strive to intentionally help others grow as Disciples of Christ.

This is a concept that seems at first blush simple and obvious. In fact, in the business world it is becoming more accepted that leaders should continually invest significant time in developing other leaders. However, in reality the Discipling Leader idea is huge, complex, and daunting...

Questions for Jesus App
from Coach22
Feature List

New! The FREE Questions for Jesus App (available for both iPhones and Androids) shows you how great questions can profoundly impact your devotional life—and it teaches you a powerful tool for helping your clients encounter Jesus in your coaching sessions.

This conversational prayer and journaling app features 26 meditations (taken from the book, Questions for Jesus). The process is simple: read a meditation, choose one of the five profound questions to ask Jesus, listen while instrumental music plays, and then journal what you heard. The best part is sharing the journey with friends: you can sync up apps to pray the same question each day and text each other what you are hearing!

What sets Questions for Jesus apart from other devotional tools is what you are praying about. Instead of praying for direction or running down a prayer list, Questions for Jesus launches a two-way conversation where you are asking Jesus to fill the deepest desires of your heart--with himself! When you start talking to him like the love of your life instead of your boss, it is amazing how eager Jesus is to answer!
