Faithful leaders will make disciples, but great leaders focus on making other leaders. A leader doesn't learn to lead by attending a class or reading a book on leadership. A leader learns to lead best when he or she begins to lead others and is coached along the journey by a mentor. As the ministry leader is learning and applying the gospel in their own life, the followers will learn from what they see modeled in the life of their leader. They will be equipped and empowered by the gospel through the practical example and the visible fruit of that leader's life.
The Gospel Coach Workbook accompanies Gospel Coach: Shepherding Leaders to Glorify God ©2012 ZONDERVAN by walking participants through the development of leaders and the making of disciples.
Formal training to make leaders is ineffective. A lot of training focuses on technique, on content, and on curriculum. The Gospel Coach Workbook contains a lot of content, but with intentionally integrated visual illustrations for those who learn best in this way. It also integrates kinesthetic learning by encouraging writing some key ideas right in the book. Finally, it utilizes experiential learning to reinforce the skill development. Participants engage in multiple conversations to help process the content. The goal is that after reading Gospel Coach and walking through the Workbook, participants would become equipped to competently coach a disciple in the power of the gospel.
The Gospel Coaching Workbook will walk step by step through the material, outlining the major points to consider as you learn to be a Gospel Coach that shepherds others toward the Chief Shepherd, Jesus.
