GCI Ministry Coaching recently conducted a Coach Clinic for GCI pastors and ministry leaders. The clinic, which was held in Titusville, FL, was hosted by Charles Fleming. Anthony Mullins, GCI’s Coordinator of Ministry Coaching served as trainer. Most of the 12 participants (some are pictured below) came from the Caribbean (including the nations of Grenada, Martinique, Bahamas, St. Vincent, Trinidad and Tobago). Others came from the U.S. (Florida, California and North Carolina).
According to Anthony Mullins, Coach Clinic participants spent two days
learning the empowering rhythms of intentional coaching conversations, mastering the dynamics of the C.O.A.C.H Model of coaching, and seeking to understand how coaching relationships can be implemented in pastoral leadership, discipleship and in developing emerging leaders.
Here are comments from participants:
The Clinic was a liberating experience. This has opened up a new way of connecting and seeing my own needs. (Elisha St. Louis)
It was a great learning experience. (Robert McKinney)
It was an exciting and delightful coaching session. I am praying for powerful renewal in our churches. (Kernani Cheny)
The Coach Clinic was timely—God’s timing. (Clifton Charles)
Anthony also noted that
upon returning home, several of the pastors have implemented a coaching posture in their leadership meetings, are using coaching in their personal relationships, and are charting a course for how coaching can enhance and facilitate discipleship within their congregations. Some of them are planning to host coach training in their areas next year. In the U.S., Daniel Leon and Elizabeth Mullins are taking the necessary steps to complete being certified as GCI Ministry Coaches.
