INCM Leader Coaching was developed by leaders with education and degrees in Psychology and Coaching (Life Coaching and Leadership Coaching specializations). We have created a program that follows current and academically sound methods for coaching.
INCM Certified Coaches are trained in these methods, and have been through rigorous training in the coaching relationship and skills. Each one has been personally vetted by the INCM staff. In addition, INCM Certified Coaches have extensive and current experience in leading children’s ministry. In fact, most of our coaches currently serve as church staff. Their unique ability to apply coaching methods to the leadership of children’s ministry make them a truly remarkable coach for anyone serving kids and families.
The INCM Leader Coaching process is uniquely designed with the children’s ministry leader in mind. We have taken researched and current methods for coaching and applied them not only to a Christian leadership context, but to a children’s and family ministry leadership context.
The benefit of experiencing coaching alongside a small group of fellow children’s ministry leaders is invaluable. No doubt, these leaders will be “your people” for life.
No more than 6 people. They are intentionally kept to this size to allow everyone the opportunity to get the time, interaction, and attention needed to maximize the experience.
The exact calendar will be set by your coach as she/he determines the best dates/times for your unique group. The ultimate goal is for your group to meet twice a month. Appropriate breaks may be observed to accommodate for busy seasons like Christmas and Easter.
If you participate in all gatherings (2 a month, no more than an hour each) and complete all exercises, coaching requirements will not take more 3-4 hours a month.
Coaching groups will begin meeting September 2020 and will conclude May 2021.
Not necessarily. This is up to the coach’s discretion and is not a requirement or expectation of the INCM Leader Coaching experience. All coaching conversations and tools are presented in the group coaching sessions.
The make-up of the group is based on the comfortability of the coach and of course your own comfort level. You have the opportunity to indicate your preferences, as do our coaches. Some groups will be mixed, others will not be.
This will be an entirely virtual experience.
First, you must participate in an INCM Leader Coaching Group. Coaches are coached, and this is a critical first step in our certification process.
Our INCM Certified Coaches are encouraged to consider who in their groups might be showing aptitude for becoming a coach themselves. Anyone interested in becoming an INCM Certified Coach must have a referral from an existing coach to apply to join our INCM Coach Certification Program.
With a referral, leaders may apply to participate in our program. Upon acceptance, they must successfully complete each module of our program as well as the final capstone project and interview.
INCM reserves the right to not issue certification to anyone who participates in the program but does not successfully complete each requirement.
