Complete Synopsis Prerequisites: None
Contrary to how pastors may have led previously by giving advice and delivering instruction, in this course, pastors and church leaders will learn twelve essential coaching skills to enhance their ability to have transformational conversations with others. The goal is for believers to learn how to speak less and listen more deeply, seek God for Spirit-led questions to ask others, and help the Body of Christ continue to move towards God’s agenda and motives – and not those of the world.
