There is a grace revolution and if you’re reading this, you’re a part of it! Our Father is raising up more and more teachers of the grace message. Yet, there’s a question each of us needs to ponder, “How much more could I grow in grace if I had a mentor to walk with me?”
For 24 years, we’ve been helping people understand God’s grace through counseling, events and resources. Yet, during that time, we’ve heard a common question, “How do I live this stuff out in all the areas of my life?” I’m happy to announce that God has now equipped GLI with an answer. It’s our latest arm of ministry called coaching. Many people offer this but we provide the grace message as our foundation for coaching. Why is that important? Your coaching should show you how living from union with Christ can take you into the future He has already planned for you.
Ephesians 2:10 tells us God has something special planned for each of us. “God has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus, he has created us for a life of good deeds, which he has already prepared for us to do.” GNT In other words, before you were ever born God planned all of the areas that he wanted to express his life through. This can be in your relationships, job, ministry, hobbies, exercise, entertainment and so much more.
What is the difference in life coaching and counseling?
Counseling is focused on a person’s past in order to help them understand how God can solve problems in their present life. Coaching is focused on a person’s future to help them get from where they are today to God’s purpose for them in the future.
Was Coaching Done in the Bible?
Yes. Elijah coached Elisha preparing him to be Israel’s prophet. Jesus coached his disciples preparing them to be apostles. Paul coached Timothy preparing him to set up and lead churches.
How long is a coaching session?
Weekly coaching sessions are 50 minutes in length unless otherwise agreed upon by your coach. Bi-monthly is usually two 50 minute sessions at one time. Monthly is usually three 50 minute sessions at one time.
