Christian Life Coaching is a pastoral ministry blending the heart of a pastor and the professional knowledge of a full-time relationships expert. When people have problems that are more complex than are normally dealt with by pastors, they require the abilities of a Christian minister who specializes in these areas, such as:
CHILD BEHAVIORAL ISSUES
Anxiety and Depression
GRIEF AND LOSS
Some people feel they must turn to a psychiatrist or psychologist in order to receive qualified help in these areas. Christian Life Coaching seeks to fill the void between the schedule and training limitations of most pastors and the non-spiritual and clinical methods employed by many of today’s professional counselors. Psychology is man’s answers to man’s problems. Christian Life Coaching is God’s answers to man’s problems. Perhaps now more than ever, people are searching for God’s answers to their complex problems.
My theory of coaching is that the Bible contains a God-ordained, sufficient, and comprehensive system of principles, insights, goals, and appropriate methods for understanding and resolving the problems of people. Scripture provides a model for helping people that needs no supplement. God, the Expert on helping people, has given us teaching perspectives and methodologies that are wholly adequate for resolving personal difficulties and the problems of others. (2 Peter 1:3)
