Coaching4Clergy’s Professional Coach Training program is for pastors, church leaders, and ministry staff who want to develop ministry excellence and effectiveness. Often unprepared for the shifting landscape of ministry in today’s world, most pastors do not feel equipped to effectively lead their churches. Despite shrinking budgets, changing demographics, and uncertain preparation, expectations are that leadership will be able to step up and enable new dreams and their fulfillment.

Leaders can quickly use this training to integrate a Coach Approach into their current ministry without completing certification. This is one option. Another option is to become an Associate Certified Coach and then a Professional Certified Coach.

Both the Part 1 and Part 2 of Coaching4Clergy’s Professional Coach Training, are ACTP program (Accredited Coach Training Programs through the International Coach Federation). Tarrant Baptist Association staff members are certified trainers with Coaching4Clergy. Professional Coach Training consists of 128 hours of coach training that is pre-approved by the ICF.
