This morning I sat in Joel Comiskeyâ€™s living room for a coaching session with my staff. We are finding clarification for moving ahead in cell-driven ministry. In sharing my excitement with others, about re-entering a coaching commitment, it was suggested by some that I know enough to accomplish this coaching myself and probably donâ€™t need to meet with Joel.
HOWEVER, times like these are inestimable in value. We desire the â€œgive and takeâ€ of conversation and accountability in ministry. Sitting with an â€œexpertâ€ who is objective about our situation provides an unbiased view of how well we are connecting to cell principles. Another benefit is the coachâ€™s grasp of knowledge we do not yet â€œownâ€ and his ability to guide us to its application. Where we are weak, he presses us to grow by reading authors who have tackled the difficulties we are facing.
Returning home (we travel 3 hours to connect) we have projects to work on together that will forge our strength as a team, reading assignments that will bring further discussion and goals to set which will lead to progress in fruitful ministry.
How are you connected in coaching? Do you have a resource to draw from regularly? Is this blog site a help to you? Would you like me to â€œchronicleâ€ our journey in coaching over the next few months? Let me know.
