How Do I Become A Coached Church?
To get involved in the Promise Keepers Coaching for Ministry With Men program, your church needs to sign a Coaching Contract. The contract requires payment of a modest fee which partly funds the program. Full details are in the Coaching Proposal PDF (365 KB).
Excerted from the proposal are the benefits you will get and the responsibilities you will have from Coaching.
What Will a PK Coaching Contract Do for You?The principle behind a Coaching contract is very simple – Promise Keepers will do all that we can to ensure the success of your Ministry with Men. We will do this through the following:
|•||Initial phone contact to determine what level your Ministry with Men is currently operating at.|
|•||Providing resources to help you establish a clear and compelling vision for your Ministry with Men and the strategies needed to take your men to the next level.|
|•||Helping you set achievable and measurable goals.|
|•||Assisting with ideas that will create momentum in your Ministry with Men and helping you put together an effective calendar of men’s events.|
|•||Providing access to speakers if required for camps and events.|
|•||Providing a quality annual Promise Keepers Event to create energy and galvanise your men for the next level in their spiritual journey.|
|•||Helping identify potential leaders and assisting in building a Ministry with Men leadership team.|
|•||Keeping in touch through regular phone appointments with a nominated church leader, to check progress on goals and set new ones, and being available between planned Coaching appointments by phone or email as needed for further support.|
It needs to be noted that while some of these items – such as the annual PK Events, some resources, and advice – are available through Coaching Consultation, most of these benefits are only available through this formal Coaching Contract.
What Will You Need to Do?Like all good Coaches, we can help and assist you with all of our ability, but ultimately you have to play the game! Therefore, as a participant in our Coaching, you will need to do the following:
||Decide that Ministry with Men is a priority and devote time and resources to it. Appoint a Men’s Ministry advocate from the pastoral team.
|•||Nominate someone to be the contact person in your church who we can communicate with about Ministry with Men. This person does not have to be the Ministry with Men ‘leader’ if that person has not been appointed yet, nor do they have to be a pastor. They do need to be appointed and supported by the church leadership in order to succeed in the Coaching relationship.|
|•||Sign the Coaching Contract.|
|•||Create a budget for Ministry with Men that includes the cost of Coaching.|
|•||Work with a Coach to set goals and actively work together to complete them.|
|•||Understanding the impact that attending a Promise Keepers National Event can have on your Ministry with Men, ensure the church contact person and other team members lead by example by attending this Event.|
|•||Promote and attend local Promise Keepers Coaching or training workshops.|
