Brian Long of Church of the Foothills in Cameron Park, CA sent this article to me written by Kevin Miller of Christianity Today. The first question is, "How do you work pastorally with people who are likely to fall again?" And if we are honest, we either experience this, or run into it on a regular basis. Where and how deep do we drill down to find out the root causes of the fall?
One of the critical roles of Kingdom ministry is that of serving as a spiritual mother/father to an emerging generation of Christ followers. While this has always been the case since the founding of the Church, it seems more critical than ever in this current season.
As you know, I’ve done quite a bit of work with coaching. I’ve been licensed as a coach trainer by Creative Results Management (CRM) and certified by the International Coach Federation as an Accredited Certified Coach.
CRM’s Keith Webb is the head of the coach training and has helped us with developing a coaching culture in the CPD, which is gaining momentum. He puts out a regular blog and has given me permission to use him as a guest blogger from time to time as I come across articles he has written that really apply to us.
