The idea of coaching is beginning to take hold in our association. Back in November, more than 20 of our pastors and lay leaders were introduced to coaching at a one day workshop. Since that time, we have had seven of our leaders who have begun a 90 day journey of being coached. I am one of those who have started this process.
With that in mind, I want to share with you that I am excited to let you know we have a workshop coming in January called Process Coaching. This workshop is geared to develop a process to work through many of the problems we face at church. Jim Hamilton, Executive Director for the Dakota Baptist Convention, will be here to lead this workshop. Jim has shared with me that many of his churches in their state convention have moved from survival mode to a much healthier state through process coaching.
This blog is an invitation for all our CBA leaders and friends to attend this event. Process Coaching will be help at East Madison Baptist Church from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 23 and from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 24. We encourage all of our pastors and volunteer leaders to participate in this event with us.
My life is personally being blessed as I begin to read about coaching and experience the benefit of being coached. Please pray about taking the time to join us for this event. You can register by e-mailing Amanda Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the CBA office at 608-825-9946. There is no cost but we do need to know if you are coming so we can have your workbooks prepared and enough food prepared.
I pray God uses this teaching for years to come in a might way throughout our churches.
