This on ministry-specific coaching guide on Obedient Discipleship follows the four stages and 10 frames on the storyboard. These sequential stages consist of:
- Connect holistically with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Grow relationally with those in the church and those who as yet not part of the kingdom.
- Serve generously and respect all people.
- Reproduce continuously as an obedient disciple.
Foundational to the future of the church is the intentional development of obedient disciples whose lives are established on the principles of loving God, loving others and making disciples. Although discipleship is far from a linear process, without a clear pathway many people flounder in their faith and never experience the exciting journey of becoming a disciple and making disciples.
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 several sessions) and the coach invites the individuals to think about application issues by asking the questions and probing further when answers are given.
