eastern nd synod coaching network


coach network

The coaching movement in the ELCA began 15 years ago in an attempt to empower and equip congregational mission developers in their work.  We are excited to be bringing it to Eastern ND Synod!

"Coaches connect dreams to concrete action that create change for individuals and congregations"


Coaching is....

  • A question-driven conversation
  • A relationship with a purpose
  • A tool to facilitate change
  • A way to make disciples
  • Focused on the client
  • Designed for discovery
  • Support for people going somewhere
  • A great way to make a difference
  • Built on listening, questioning, and taking action
  • Designed for growth, not just results
