Guest: David Smith, life development and spiritual growth coach; David also trains leaders in The Coach Approach

Introduction: Church leaders can invest in the lives of staff and church members through coaching.


  • Participating in regular coaching sessions is a relational and tailor-made process. It’s a deeper investment and it pays off in the lives of those you coach.
  • Establishing a coaching relationship
    • Clarity about what coaching is (and what it isn’t)
    • Getting to know one another
    • Discussing what coaching will look like
  • When should church staff do the coaching and when should a third-party coach be considered?
    • Authority role vs. influencer role: if that’s difficult, an external coach would be better.
    • Keep the investment of time in mind.
  • Church leaders must be thoughtful and intentional about who they’re investing in. Even if an external coach is used, coaching shows an investment in church staff and members.

Thought Starters:

  • Who on my staff might be open to coaching?
  • How might I consider the short- and long-term effects of coaching for my church?
