Complete Synopsis Prerequisites: None
Whether you are leading a team of athletes, your kids and family, friends/peers, or employees, you are being a coach. As a Christian, it is your calling to help people you encounter and those who encounter you – experience the best version of yourself that you have to offer. As such, a genuine coach works through love, not duty or obligation, and always carries an encouraging word. I Peter 3:15 says, “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” In this course, you will cite encouraging quotes from some of the world’s greatest athletes and their coaches. You will identify if the quote is biblical or not and support your answer with Scripture. Compare the encouragement and wisdom you have found in Christ and The Word of God with that of some of the world’s greatest coaches and athletes quoted in the textbook. This course will serve as a daily check-in as you learn to encourage yourself with great humility while reflecting on the wisdom of God with that of the world’s greatest coaches and athletes.
