Sending Well: A Field Guide to Great Church Planter Coaching gives practical steps for creating a system that delivers great coaching to church planters. Whether you are coaching planters or attempting to develop coaches for multiple planters, this book will help you.
Sending Well helps coaches and leaders enhance their coaching efforts in three parts:
Part One: Build a Coaching Framework – Coaching is a vehicle to help church planters pursue their unique Kingdom assignment. Building a coaching framework is crucial to this assignment. Church planter coaches and the planters they coach must have the same purposes in mind. Building a framework helps ensure this will be the case.
Part Two: Develop Great Coaches – Great coaches are made not born; they are developed. Sending Well creates simple targets for coaches who want to move from “good enough” to “great."
Part Three: Deliver Great Coaching –The meaning of the word “coach” must evolve from training to action. “Coach" is a verb, and supporting church planters is the desired outcome. Sending Well explores four vital elements of a coaching delivery system.
