Mission Development and Congregational Vitality Coaching

Mission Development and Congregational Vitality (MD/CV) Coaching is a powerful tool to accompany Missional Leaders, Rostered Leaders, and/or Lay Leaders in congregations aiming for growth or change. 

In this specialized and ICF-accredited Segment 2 Training, Coaches are educated in the context of Mission Development, Redevelopment, and Congregational Vitality, their commonalities, and differences. 

MD/CV Coaching provides a specially trained, reliable, and confidential conversation partner

  • for denominationally approved, trained, and appointed Mission Developers who must work through a list of speific steps and requirements in connection to the financial funds their new mission development receives from the denomination.
  • for Rostered and/or Conregational Lay Leaders, as they address structural and missional change in their congregations.

MD/CV Coaching increases the possibilities for change and empowers leaders in their role and tasks by defining desired outcomes, developing small, attainable, effective steps to move the project forward, and addressing roadblocks along the way. An effective dynamic between result coaching and growth coaching deepens the developmental process.
