My tenth year anniversary as a coach is in the near future and as I look back on the years so many of my best memories are associated with the Christian Coaches Network (CCN). Founded in 1998 with the tag line of “catalyst and conduit for Christian coaches,” CCN is the oldest professional Christian coaching organization in existence. Member coaches have trained at a variety of coach training schools and CCN is not affiliated with any one training school. As a member of this diverse professional network of Christian coaches, I have forged relationships and created partnerships that have significantly impacted my career and ministry as a coach.

Recently, there have been some changes at the Christian Coaches Network website– some tweaks and enhancements that are worth taking a look at if you haven’t visited the site lately. For examples, more general coaching industry information has been added and there is a schedule of events presented by member Christian coaches.

Upcoming events include featured speakers (and CCN Members) Dr. Keith Webb, Professional Certified Coach, author of The COACH Model for Christian Leaders (October 23), and Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, speaking on Overcoming Limiting Thoughts (December 4). I will be partnering with CCN to present “How to Become a Coach” on October 23.

Whether you are thinking of becoming a coach or are a new or seasoned coach, I recommend that you check out CCN and consider becoming a member!
