Small-Group Four Packs
Four Pack: Being a Great Coach
Learn from four of our best coaching resources.
We've all heard it before: "I don't know what the coach said to them in the locker room, but it worked!" It's amazing that coaches, the people who stand on the sidelines for the entire game, can have such an impact on the team's performance—even making or breaking it. They never go to bat, pass the ball, or make a good block. Yet without good coaching, a team will be unsuccessful.
Now consider the hard work that small-group leaders do and the role they play on the larger team of the small-group ministry. They need someone to call out the best in them and guide them to victory. Coaching is hard work, but it's work that amazingly important to the health and success of small-group ministry. This resource bundles together four of our best coaching tools: Small-Group Coach Orientation Guide, Coaching Small-Group Leaders, Ministering to Struggling Small-Group Leaders, and Becoming a Great Listener.
"Four Pack: Being a Great Coach" is a bundled pack containing the following SmallGroups.com resources:
There's no doubt that small-group leaders play an important role in the discipleship process of most churches. They are the men and women "in the trenches" of a small-group ministry that make it work with the Holy Spirit to produce mature disciples of Jesus.
But what about the people who equip, encourage, and empower those group leaders? Depending on the church, they are called coaches, shepherds, champions, and many other things. But they are a vital part of any successful ministry.
Small-group leaders play a vital role in the discipleship process of many churches by teaching, supporting, and even confronting the members of their groups. But who teaches, supports, and confronts the group leaders? That is largely the role of small-group coaches. This downloadable resource can help focus and strengthen your church's coaching ministry. And if your church doesn't support small-group leaders with coaches yet, this resource can help you get started today.
Small-group leaders have a huge impact on the success of small groups. They prepare questions, facilitate discussion, empower group members to minister to one another, and guide the group members toward their goals. So when a leader is struggling, the group most likely will be hurting as well.
This Practical Ministry Skills resource will help you learn preventive measures your ministry can take, and give you practical skills on ministering to specific struggles and handling difficult conversations. In all, you'll receive twelve great articles to help you keep leaders on track and restore leaders who are struggling.
If you lead a small group, you want to be effective in helping your members grow closer to each other and closer to God. If you coach small-group leaders, you want to be effective in supporting and equipping them for the task. But all of that can be short-circuited if you neglect the critical step of listening. This download features practical skills and advice that will help you improve as a listener. It also includes helpful ways to administer those skills in a small-group setting.
