Leadership Coaching Project
A coaching experience for clergy and church staff 

March 4-6, 2013 (followed by 6 months of coaching)
Churchnet is collaborating with the Transformed by the Spirit Leadership Center of Central Baptist Theological Seminary and Pinnacle Leadership Associates to offer a coaching experience for pastors and church staff.

Trainers provided by Pinnacle Leadership Associates
Although attending retreats and conferences are inspirational and restful, few of those experiences result in transformation.  The Leadership Coaching Project is a coaching experience for clergy and church staff designed to facilitate growth and change over a six-month period.  Our goal is to help clergy and church staff raise their leadership effectiveness around specific leadership competencies.
Monday, 2:00 p.m. to Wednesday, 3:00 p.m.

$775/person + $170 Room and Board
$500/person + $170 Room and Board for CBTS Students

Participants will gather for a retreat focused on identifying one’s leadership strengths and needs. Participants will:
    Complete PeopleMap Personality and Leadership Style Inventories
    Learn how to apply the meaning of these tools to their ministry leadership
    Learn about Life Purpose Exploration
    Learn how to construct a Learning Plan focused on leadership development
    Participate in group sessions with their assigned leadership coach

When is the right time for a minister to participate in the Leadership Coaching Project?
    Beginning a new ministry placement
    Facing a major ministry objective
    Experiencing conflict in a ministry setting
    One is “stuck” and needs to grow or gain a new vision
    Evaluating a sense of calling to a vocational ministry or a particular ministry context
    Things are going fine – allowing time for personal and professional development
    Entering vocational ministry
    Life is out of balance and a proactive approach for sustainable ministry is needed

Who should participate?
Solo pastors, senior pastors, associate pastors, interim pastors, ministers in transition, all church staff regardless of responsibility, chaplains, denominational and judicatory leaders, ministers with specialized assignments, and seminary students.  The Leadership Coaching Project is open to clergy and church staff of any Christian denomination.

Leadership Coaching
During the retreat, participants will meet their coach and begin the coaching process.  During the following six months participants will meet with their coach two times each month for leadership coaching.  Most leadership coaching is done by telephone, eliminating geographical constraints.  Leadership coaches work with their clients toward reaching the client’s goals.  Participants will find the personalized Learning Plan and Leadership Coaching to be exceptional tools for forwarding their ministry effectiveness.
