This ministry-specific coaching guide on the Church Planter Pathway follows the four stages and 10 frames on the storyboard. These sequential stages consist of:
- Prepare to grow in a local church.
- Focus and connect with the movement you are a part of.
- Refine and develop ministry competencies.
- Apply and develop specific step to ministry
The Church Planter Pathway is designed to develop more and better leaders who will plant and grow churches to reach the extensive harvest of people without Christ. This local church based pathway is both linear and mosaic and is designed to help the planter – or the pastor/coach who coaches the planter – to identify if essential steps have been missed in the planters development ensuring individuals have the very best chance of being successful at planting new churches that are healthy and growing.
Apart from the specific introductory notes for coaches, most critically, the CG provides suggested questions that can be asked of the coachee to help open up the conversation. These targeted questions (and support coaching notes) exist for all the “behavioral indicators” of each “frame” of the storyboard. The individual being coached can then refer to their own separate storyboard as a guide to the conversation (which will be over a number of sessions) and the coach invites the individuals to think about application issues by asking the questions and probing further when answers are given.
