Christian Coaching

The purpose of life for a Christian is the relentless pursuit of who God has made you to be.
Coaching is a process by which a person being coached (PBC) regularly communicates with a coach where they talk and think together. It provides truth and articulation of thoughts and values inside the PBC upon which he or she can take action.  The "coach approach" consists of a directed conversation about one topic with clarifying questions from the coach. It leads to a decision or plan based on the desires of the heart of the PBC.

To understand the arrangement, take a look at a standard agreement:
