Biblical Basis for Coaching


The Bible never commands us to coach. In fact, the word coach is never used. So why coach? Is it even biblical? The Biblical Basis for Coaching examines the ways that coaching aligns with scriptural principles. Downloadable PDF file.


The Biblical Basis for Coaching: Coaching is the process of coming alongside a person or team to help them discover God’s agenda for their life and ministry, and then cooperating with the Holy Spirit to see that agenda become a reality. Coaches come alongside to help, just as Barnabas came alongside Paul, and then Paul came alongside Timothy and others. By encouraging and challenging others, coaches empower them for ministry. This downloadable article examines several pertinent scripture passages as it examines the ways in which coaching aligns with biblical principles. Use it together with your team or congregation to reflect on how God would have you approach ministry and discipleship.
