A Coaching Culture
As the EMCC, we believe in cultivating a strong coaching culture. We define coaching as "the art of asking better questions to help accomplish good next steps" in obedience to Jesus' mission. As a National team, we are here to coach, network and resource our leaders and congregations to follow Jesus on mission in their context. If you are an EMCC worker in need of coaching, please contact a Regional Minister.
We hope that this coaching culture would continue to grow. As such, we offer training to help all our EMCC leaders to increase their leadership edge and effective ministry performance.
GC2 (Great Commission and Great Commandment) Coaching Skills Training
For upcoming GC2 Training sessions, please check our Calendar.
As the EMCC, we know that Christian leaders need the support of others to increase their leadership edge and effective ministry performance. And while denominational staff support can bring some help, it is insufficient for all the pastors and congregations to fulfill their part in the Great Commission.
|Two Levels of Application
One-to-One Coaching Skills: Coaching is the skill of maximizing the future ministry performance of someone else through an empowering process of asking intelligent questions.
Group Coaching Skills: Coaching, either informally or formally, is helpful for group decision-making.
We believe the GC2 training for pastors and key leaders of congregations will enable them to improve helping one another, and will give them some useful tools to keep a GC2 focus for future ministry goals and performance.
We offer GC2 training with a growing team of qualified EMCC facilitators on an on-going basis.
