CONGREGATION TRANSITION COACHING
With the guidance of a coach, many congregations have developed new attitudes, assumptions and actions that have inspired their ministries. These services require significant amounts of human and financial resources beyond the reach of many small to midsize congregations.
Ridgeview Coaching’s Council Coach offers an accessible alternative. After an initial conversation with a representative of the congregation to clarify goals, we attend a regularly scheduled meeting of the congregation’s council or leadership team. After listening and observing the meeting, Ridgeview Coaching guides the team through a 45-minute coaching session that concludes with identified action steps and accountability partners. This one-time coaching session approach may be repeated as often as the client desires. No additional meetings. No additional volunteer teams to staff.

The rate of societal change places tremendous pressure on congregations and their paid and volunteer staff. When stressed, many teams settle into actions and assumptions that are no longer effective in today’s environment. They look to the past for solutions rather than exploring opportunities for the future. If your faith community is seeking new perspectives, Ridgeview Coaching's Council Coach is for you.
