What steps will you take to ensure that action plans and learnings from a training event will actually be implemented?

How will you know that time and resources invested in training staff, elders, small group leaders, pastors or church planters is effective?

My family, and particularly my son, has noticed that my hearing is not as good as it used to be. I think he’s right. (Am I actually admitting this?)

I just finished another week of training leaders in coaching skills.

As I coached with a church planter today, I got excited about his progress! Over the past several months they’ve completed an Alpha course with several non-beleivers and they are preparing to launch another one next month. They’ve held several preview services and they are planning their move to weekly worship soon. They’ve had a baptism, several prayer walks in the community, and a recent prayer retreat. They’ve also established clear goals and expectations for this fall season!

As I watched the Olympics this past week, I am continually stunned by the sheer determination and keen discipline of Olympic athletes. I’m amazed not only by those who finish first and receive the gold, but also by every single person who competes in the games.
