You, Lord, are our Father.  We are the clay, You are the potter; 
                            we are all the work of Your hand (Isaiah 64:8).

"Coaching is an action-oriented partnership that… concentrates on where you are today and how you can reach your goals." ~Time Magazine
“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” ~ John Whitmore

Christian Life Coaching is the art, skill, and practice of coming along beside a person or group of people, working with them where they are to help assist, encourage, and motivate them to want what God wants for their life, and to help them get to where God wants them to be.  Christian Coaching is about teaching, learning, inspiring, and empowering a child of God to reach their God potential and fulfill their God given purpose through destiny discovery and alignment.  In summary, Christian Coaching help people reach their God given goals and potential by helping them discover their values, purpose, and by encouraging them to align their life with what God wants for them.  A skilled gifted Coach will inspire you to dream the dreams of God and work toward achieving those dreams.

Coaching is not counseling.  Coaching does not seek to resolve any underlying psychological problems. Coaching assumes a person does not require a psycho-social intervention or need therapy to overcome disruptive painful influences from their past.  "Coaches help people build vision and move toward the future.  Coaching is not reactive looking back; it's proactive looking ahead.  It is not about healing; it's about growing.  It focuses less on overcoming weaknesses and more on building skills and strengths.  Usually coaching is less formal than the therapist-patient relationship and more of a partnership between two equals, one of whom has experiences, perspectives, or knowledge that can be useful to the other.  The goal of coaching is not in fixing what is broken, but in discovering new talents and new ways to use old talents that lead to far greater effectiveness.” ~ Gary R. Collins
