Coaching

Undergirded by the gospel and the Spirit, we combine coaching and mentoring to help women unpack current life issues. We see women released from a duty-driven obligation to perform as a “good pastor’s wife” to a desire-driven exploration of God’s unique calling for their lives. For some, this thrusts them more boldly into ministry. For others, this gives courage to be less active yet more focused. Ministry begins to flow out of the heart, not because of need but because of want, as women see unique ways they are called to join Christ and his church in bringing his kingdom to earth.

I can’t imagine planting a church without one-on-one coaching! I feel like a green vine and my friends who do it alone are withered branches

Parakaleo’s Gospel Coaching is an on going, intentional conversation that empowers a person or group to take the hope of the gospel to their own hearts in order to creatively, freely, and fully live out God’s calling.

 

Group Coaching

happens as women bring their real life problems to their local or virtual Parakaleo group. In this time of peer coaching, questions are asked to draw out underlying beliefs and to invite women to respond with faith and freedom. Input is given only when sought.

 

 

Personal Coaching

happens when a woman in ministry engages the help of a certified Parakaleo coach for a contracted time and fee.  With a Parakaleo coach, women are challenged to see themselves, their situations, their substitute saviors, the Savior and their next steps through a biblical worldview.

Gospel Coaches Provide

  • equipping toward personal gospel transformation; assistance and accountability in skill development of competencies (Church Leader Spouse Inventory); and consultation in role navigation.

  • help in building an arsenal of truth and beauty. This is a collection of words, songs, scripture, film, poetry, art, nature, etc. that point her to Christ, mend her heart, and move her to love.

  • aid in expanding her community of support (co-workers, mentors, and counselors to whom she can look for physical, emotional, or spiritual care).

  • an invitation to faith and action or faith and waiting. As we understand her natural posture toward the world and conflict (is she a doer or a withdrawer?), coaches woo and invite her to deeper faith in Christ. This results in demonstrable change as she takes steps of faith and actions of trust, hope, love, and learning.

Coaching + Research

Parakaleo coaching is born out of research among church planting spouses. This research led to the creation of a statistically-verifiable profile inventory that reveals needed character and competencies of a church planting spouse in 21st century North America.


One of the best weeks of my life was spent with the women of Parakaleo. I’m still processing and savoring the rich, sweet, strong message of the gospel that permeated everything they offered.
