Christian Life Coaching

Life coaching is a practice with the aim of helping people determine and achieve personal goals.    Life coaches help people remove the roadblocks to success from their lives so that they can accomplish these goals.  Life Coaching is different from traditional training in several ways:

  • Draws out what God has put in the person rather than putting in information.
  • Develops the talents, gifts and graces of the person being coached rather than imposing roles on the person being coached
  • Reflects on what is being done  rather than directing what should be done
  • Effective coaching is a form of change facilitation- it enables people, rather than trains them.

Christian Life Coaching draws upon the resources of Scripture, the Holy Spirit, and spiritual disciplines to help the person being coached.

In summary, someone has said that counseling helps people deal with the past; Life coaching prepares people for the future.
