Coaching

‘Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without waving, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.’ Hebrews 10:23-25

All rostered ministers in the Southern Ohio Synod are invited to yoke themselves with one of our trained coaches for the purpose of growth, support, encouragement and motivation to take the next step in leadership.

Guiding Principles (from the ELCA Coaching Ministry)

  • God’s mission and the work of the Holy Spirit are the heart of coaching
  • Coaching is a ministry of accompaniment and encouragement
  • God provides everything needed to accomplish God’s purposes for every leader and congregation
  • Effective leadership is adaptive leadership--Coaching facilitates adaptive leadership
