At Evangel, we desire to see each individual reach their full potential in God's purposes for their life. We want to "serve you" by helping you to move forward, faster, in every area of your life. One way we can help encourage you in this process is through coaching! A coach's primary function is to help individuals move beyond their current situation (personally, professionally, and spiritually), by focusing on the present situation and discovering the path toward the future.
If you are interested, we will assign you a coach with whom you will meet on a regular basis. They will come alongside to listen and encourage you through powerful questions that will help you find the answers and direction you need in life. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions below for more information!
What is Coaching?
A coach comes alongside a person to listen, encourage, and through careful observations ask powerful questions that empower the individual to find their own answers and direction to important life-giving and life-changing choices.
A coach is like a taxi driver. They put your destination first and are committed to getting you where you want to go and are willing to go at your pace.

How is the Coaching ministry at Evangel organized?
In the church body, coaching is used in discipleship: in growing a relationship with Christ; as a response to an altar call: prayer and coaching are offered to support and encourage forward motion.
Evangel's Coaching Ministry Team is made up of individuals whom have gone through the ICF certification classes sponsored through Coach Approach Ministries. Evangel's coaches are assigned individuals to coach by our Lead Pastor, Brian Tracy. Ongoing support, encouragement, and accountability are provided to the Coaching Ministry Team, through quarterly training meetings and small group Coach mentoring sessions.
