    Faith communities are looking for assistance in meeting the increasingly complex challenges of mission, ministry and congregational life. The programmatic, cookie-cutter answers once offered by denominations and traditional consultants are now often inadequate to meet these challenges. The need is growing for consultants who can provide more personalized, context-specific help to faith communities.

    To meet this growing need for qualified consultants, the Center for Congregational Health, in partnership with the Interim Ministry Network, is offering a process to train and develop consultants to work with faith communities.  The training consists of a 5-day classroom experience, followed by individual fieldwork and participation in a series of teleconferences.

    Dates: 

    The dates for the class are October 15-19, 2018. The lab will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Monday and conclude Friday before noon.  It will be conducted at the Family Resource Center, on the campus of the Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville, North Carolina.  Specific dates and times for the fieldwork teleconferences will be scheduled during the class.

    • Standard: $1,765
    • IMN members: $1,665

    Coach Training 2: Residential Lab: (36 Hours)

    Applications for this training will be reviewed AFTER the applicant has completed Coach Training 1.

    Building on the skills and practices from Coach Training 1, the Coach Training 2 Residential Lab will continue to utilize the structure of the core competencies and increase knowledge and skill on the practice of coaching.  The residential lab will focus on using assessment tools in coaching, working with groups and teams, and other approaches to coaching--including adaptive leadership, appreciative inquiry, and asset/strengths based awareness.  It is expected that participants will have a thorough working knowledge of ICF Core Competencies and be able to exhibit those competencies through application and experiential exercises throughout this lab.  Participants will receive coaching feedback, supervision and suggestions regarding application to their own setting. These hours are applicable for ICF and Board Certified Credentialing.

    Coaching Practicum follows the Residential Lab, and is included in the cost for the course.  The Practicum consists of a series of teleconferences and/or webinars (90 minute sessions) scheduled one per month, for 6 months.  We've designed the Practicum to accommodate each participant in coaching another participant from the group, and to receive written core competency based observation and feedback from their fellow participants and the facilitator.
