205: Why You (Yes You!) Need a Discipleship Coach

Why do all serious players on any team have a coach, and why might all serious disciple-makers also need a coach? Life and ministry accelerate when you have someone help you call plays and develop strategies as you make disciples and live out this amazing Kingdom life.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll hear from some folks who have engaged with being coached and the difference it is making in their marriages, families, and communities as they press into a lifestyle of discipleship and mission in everyday life.

We don’t find the term “coach” specifically used or applied to anyone in the Bible. But we do see Jesus, Paul, Barnabas, and a host of others playing the role of “coach” and mentor in the lives of others. Being coached and coaching others is incredibly consistent with biblical principles and can produce pretty amazing results in our lives too.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Several examples of coaches and coaching relationships in the Bible.
  • A practical definition of coaching that connects to our daily lives and discipleship.
  • What the actual functions and rhythms of a healthy coaching relationship look like.
  • How coaching affects our marriages, parenting, and discipleship in real time.
  • Testimonies from people who are in a coaching relationship and the powerful results they are experiencing.

From this episode:

“Every important change and breakthrough I’ve had in my life has been from getting ​personalized advice on my exact situation from someone that has been there before. Otherwise, I remained ‘stuck’… Who doesn’t need a little help along the way?”
