7 Benefits Of Christian Life Coach Training
Today we’re going to talk about the benefits of Christian life coach training to you, as well as your future clients. I believe God has a great plan for you, one where you can make an immense impact on our world. It is our job to press close to Him and discover it so we can take action towards it.
7 benefits of Christian life coach training
Here I'll give you 7 benefits but actually there are many more. You'll also hear from a recent graduate of our training from a well-known Hollywood family. Remember, God's promises are true and His blessings are real. What He will do for one of us, He will do for another.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
(1) Getting clear about your heart's desires. There is no better time than now for you to become clear on the person you want to become, identify your passion and purpose, and dig deep to understand what is most important to you. Find that special something God put in your heart to do.
Unfortunately many people go through their entire life without taking time to understand themselves and get clear on their direction. So they struggle with their goal setting, fail at completing tasks and ultimately end up settling for mediocrity.
(2) Increasing confidence and acquiring an improved self-image. As you get to know yourself on a deeper level, your confidence and the image you carry about yourself will improve.
You will align your identity to the man or woman God created you to be. You'll learn how valuable you are, how much you have to offer and get increasingly clear on God’s plan for your life. That will provide the fuel to fire your passions in order for you to reach your divine destiny.

(3) You will execute the steps needed. The big gap between information and execution are in the motivations needed to make it happen.
There is an old saying that, “if knowing how were enough, we’d all be thin, rich and famous.“ While that statement may not be quite true, it’s clear that many people gain education for the sake of having more information. However information without implementation is pretty useless. Unlike many other types of training, our Christian life coach training actually transforms the student into a coach. You change from the inside out.
(4) The hope of change. Those who are not educated on these topics believe that their life has a fixed trajectory and they have no choice in the matter. Nothing could be further from the truth.
A coach can provide their client with the added perspective about what else is possible for their life. As a coach you'll help someone realize additional options, no matter what their circumstances.
(5) Over come inner conflict, insecurities and fear. It is not uncommon for any of us to avoid things that we are unsure about. What is familiar is seen as safe, even sometimes when it’s not desirable.
As a Christian coach, you will understand why admitting human weakness is actually a good thing. It is at that point we understand that we, in ourselves, are insufficient for the task and we need God. And when we bring God into the equation, we become fearless and victorious.
(6) You’ll transform goals into plans. It’s important to understand how to set goals based on a person’s values. Without understanding how this works, someone can set the wrong goals and end up in an even worse situation.
A trained life coach can help their client begin with their values and then reverse engineer the desired outcome. This is a skill you develop during your training.
It's not unusual for people to think they are great advice-givers or even coaches without training. Yes, certainly intuition plays an important part. But understanding how our minds work and how to help ourselves and others overcome challenges is what separates the amateur from a professional.
(7) Accountability partnership. When students graduate from our course, they are asked who will keep them accountable. It’s not unusual for the student to name a close friend or family member.
This is usually not a good idea, particularly if the designated person has no coach training. There are many reasons for this. Someone who is close to you, wants to please you and may (consciously or unconsciously) be unable to challenge the other person's self-defeating behaviors.
A friend or family member is not trained to separate their personal feelings from accountability they could give that will help the person they are trying to coach.
And let's face it, when the friend changes and grows, it holds up a mirror to their support person's life and issues. This can cause jealousy or fear of growing apart and eventually sabotage the goals of the person being coached.
Can you see why this is not a great idea?
We have discussed 7 benefits of Christian life coach training. Included are gaining clarity, confidence, executing the steps needed, renewed hope, casting fear aside, creating actionable plans and remaining accountable to another person (coach) for growth and execution of tasks.
