Why become a Certified Christian Life Coach?

  • In the future, people who are not coaches will not be promoted. Jack Welch
  • A coach is someone trained and devoted to guiding others into increased competence, commitment, and confidence. Frederic Hudson
  •  Coaching helps people expand their visions, build their confidence, unlock their potential, increase their skills, and take practical steps towards their goals. Dr. Gary Collins
  • Quite simply, questions hold the power to cause us to think, create answers we believe in, and motivate us to act on our ideas. Asking moves us beyond passive acceptance of what others say, or staying stuck in present circumstances, to aggressively applying our creative ability to the problem. Tony Stoltzfus
