Coaching is important for us to grow in our ministries. If you have been contemplating coaching, trust me, it helps you grow by leaps and bounds. The 2018 Youth Ministry Coaching Cohort by Terrace Crawford and David Olshine is a great place for you to start! It is a year long starting in January going through December with a lot of benefits that you hardly get anywhere else in coaching. Here are some of those benefits!
It has 1-on-1 coaching.
As a part of this program, you will get 1-on-1 private coaching sessions from both coaches. The 1 hour session each month will be a very practical tool for you to discuss your struggles in your very own ministry and for them to direct you through the waters. It allows you to be real to them and for them to be real to you. 1-on-1 coaching is one of the biggest perks you can have in ministry to help you grow and develop in your calling.
It has live premium training sessions.
These training’s are solely for you and the small group you will be with. No one else will have access to them. They will be led by both coaches and will be directly applicable to your youth ministry. Private training can be huge tool for you to ask questions and hear other’s questions and learn from them.
The private Facebook group.
A private Facebook group is huge. Allows you to have access with others in the cohort and coaches. This allows for easy conversations with other youth workers that may be going through the same struggles you are. You may be able to help others with a problem you have already been through. The private Facebook groups I am a part of are a huge resource for me to keep growing as a youth worker.
It explores 5 different areas of ministry.
Some coaching groups can either be too broad, or beat a dead horse with a topic. Terrace and David have chosen very specific topics to go over during the cohort. The topics are relevant to all youth ministries and are probably 5 of the most important to go over. They are:
- Ministry to Parents
These are all great topics to get coaching on to help you and your ministry to continue to grow.
The cohort is limited to 15 people.
The cohort is very limited. With 15 people, the coaching will be very authentic and specific to you. This allows for you to have open access to reach your coaches with issues and questions you may have. It also allows for you to have more of relationship with your coaches. There are a lot of great places to get coaching out there, but with the limited amount of people, you know your going to get a ton from your coaches.
The free resources for your ministry.
In partnership with Ministry Downloads, you will get resources to help you out in your ministry. It is stock full of great resources. I am luck enough to be author there (click here to check my stuff out)! It has resources to help out nearly all ministries in the church. With getting resources for free for being a part of the cohort, that’s a pretty sweet benefit! There are other free resources along the way for being a part of the program!
This program is starting very soon! If you would like to be a part of this really sweet cohort or get more info, head over to www.YouthMinCoaching.com! You have until December 11th to apply. Another perk is that if you apply by December 1st, you get $100 off of the cohort. If you have been in youth ministry and want coaching but don’t know where to start, then this is your place to start!
