IN ACTS 29, WE ASSESS, COACH, TRAIN, AND SUPPORT CHURCH PLANTERS AND CHURCH PLANTING CHURCHES. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR CHURCHES AND THOSE WHO LEAD THEM ENDURE.
Part of how we do that is through coaching.
There are as many definitions of coaching as there are coaches. For our purposes, we will define coaching as a relationship where a person receives advice, instruction or training to help them accomplish a goal or task.
We will do this in the following group formats. For more information on how to take advantage of coaching opportunities, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once per month, Acts 29 leaders gather across the US Southeast to help each other develop and mature as pastors and planters. These groups range in size from three leaders to three dozen leaders, providing instruction, solving problems and listening to God through the Scriptures and prayer for direction. You can see an active list of area gatherings here.
As part of our commitment to churches (not just lead pastors), we have developed several groups for various staff positions in the church. These groups meet monthly throughout the year to learn together, solve problems and support one another. Current groups include:
- Children, Family and Student Ministries [January 2020]
- Second Chair (Administrator, Executive Pastor, Operations Director) [January 2020]
- Worship Leader [ACTIVE]
Size Specific Groups
Whether you’re trying to grow through size barriers or settle in at the size you currently are now, there are common realities and practices that healthy churches and thriving leaders adopt based on the size and development stage of your church. That’s why we’ve created coaching groups for leadership teams to help you assess your current situation and build a development plan for the next stage of life for your church. Groups include Breaking 200, Breaking 400, etc.
Pastors are responsible for prayer, reading the Scriptures and providing spiritual guidance. Pastors are also human, which means they need someone else to pastor them. If you want an experienced guide to help you notice and name God’s work in you and around you, as well as helping you develop practices that help you deepen your relationship with Jesus, email us at email@example.com.
