I’m a saver. Take a look at this CCN conference materials binder from 2003! It’s been in my office, on the bookshelf ever since. It’s from the first ever CCN conference, an in-person event held in Virginia Beach, VA. Next week, I will attend the sixth CCNI conference, a virtual event called Maximize, September 29 – October 1.
I have great memories from that first conference in 2003. I remember the excellent breakout sessions (and got cassette tapes to review after!). I remember the joy we shared over connecting with like-minded coaches from around the country and globally (I met Christian coaches there from the UK and Germany). I remember putting faces the names of my fellow coach training students and instructors. I remember meeting Gary R. Collins and other leaders in the Christian coaching industry. I remember singing together, united in worship. What a wonderful event that shaped me both professionally and personally!
And look how far things have come!
Some things have changed – the organization is now Christian Coaches Network International.
But the potential for impact remains the same – both personally for individual coaches and collectively for the field of professional Christian coaching.
