Coaching is probably the least-valued and most critical ingredient toward the success of a church planter. The positive characteristics of a typical planter of faith, boldness and courage often come with the downside of a lack introspection and humility.
Once a planter’s swagger is replaced with a limp, he generally is open to a coaching relationship. To avoid that painful collision, Send Network has trained church planting coaches across North America to offer a two-year coaching relationship to every planter.
As you walk through your training track, your city missionary will gain an understanding of your model and context, and seek to match you with an experienced coach who can be your personal sounding board for the many decisions that will be coming your way. Other than your assessment, this may be your greatest gift as a planter.
