Let's speak as clearly as we can on this: church planting is hard, hard work. Much harder than anyone can anticipate before you start.
That's a big reason why you need other people. You need to be the right kind of leader to get the job done. Coaching church planters is a special balance of 1) strategy for developing your congregation's vision and launch plan and 2) equipping you with the leadership skills you need to lead the people who will join your new church. Think about it like a field of wheat...every stalk blowing and waving in the wind with harmony and precision. The Holy Spirit is moving like the wind...and you're the leader who's making sure that every stalk is available.
It's all about helping you get into a position where you are facilitating other people's growth. Church plants don't work without growth!
The beautiful thing about this process: It's ideally suited to be delivered inside of a coaching relationship! And that's where CoachNet's coaching for church planters comes in.
