Discipleship Coach Training

The Discipleship Coach Training course combines aspects of spiritual direction using a coach approach to create a conversational environment that trains those you disciple to hear God’s voice directly for themselves.

Feedback from Pastor Steven: I’m already implementing what I’ve learned with our leadership and volunteers. I have been praying about how to help my discipleship huddle leaders have deeper conversations while pointing the people towards Jesus. The RRIIA inquiry model was exactly what I needed to help these leaders. God’s timing on all of this was perfect! Thank you for your passion, and your willingness to step out and do something different. I can see how this is going to make a huge difference in the church, and in the world.

Feedback From Previous Courses

This course has increased my confidence in creating group experiences where each person feels seen & heard and also fostering “grace space” for the Holy Spirit to work.
– Tami L.
This training is more than traditional training – it a living, breathing experience of both encountering Jesus through the lives of fellow participants and learning how to pass it along to those we encounter in life.
– Denis K.
Each class was equally excellent, and I filled my notebook with new skills and understanding while my heart was filled with new ways of seeing others. I cannot recommend this course more highly!
– Stephanie G.
This was a high-impact, content-rich, hands-on journey through practical principles that connect spiritual insight with effective coaching skills.

The DCT course has stretched me in ways I never imagined. It has not only transformed my approach to coaching and discipleship but has also deepened my walk as a follower of Jesus. I am immensely grateful for this opportunity for growth and self-discovery.
