In today’s post Colin Noyes shares about the importance of developing coaches within faith-based ministries to see quality growth and multiplication take place throughout every facet of ministry.
I have been coaching for more than 25 years and in that time I have worked with hundreds of Christian leaders from a wide range of ministries and from many different countries. With that kind of exposure it doesn’t take long to identify common characteristics in leaders. One characteristic that I find in almost every leader is a belief that because they can help others work through problems, set goals and realise change, they can do the same thing for themselves. Unfortunately, in most circumstances this is just not true and leaders fall back on default behaviour to make decisions.
