Join Dave Peterson and Thomas Kenyon in bringing to light the topics that are common to men who have chosen a career as a Christian coach; from the challenges of being a solopreneur to the excitement of being used by God to help our clients experience the victorious life that Jesus purchased for each of us.

Christian Writers Group

Helping Christian coaches who feel called to write – to write.

Christian Writers Group

Are you called by God to write? If the answer is no, don’t waste your time. If the answer is yes, then anything less is disobedience. Don’t worry about publishing, posting, or profiting. Write for an audience of the One who really matters. Write as an act of obedience. Write because you must.

Presenters: Pam Mertz and Rich Weigel

Christian Coaches who are called to write have an opportunity to gather, connect, support, learn and encourage one another in the writing process. 

If you have a thought to write, or have published books, and anywhere in between, this Writer’s Group has a place for you!  We have provided this space for a couple of years now and it continues to be a very fruitful space for Christian coaches who also write to gain traction in this process.

Coaches coach and writers write!  Come and be a part of this space where we “explore the more” God has for each of us in this space of writing.

Our Writing Group will be answering some of the following questions while at the same time, pushing each other to accomplish some writing that we can post, publish, or present.

  • What do you feel compelled to write about?
  • What’s burning in your heart that someone else needs to read?
  • Who is going to benefit from what you write?
  • What are they going to do with it after they’ve read it?
  • What makes it important if Jesus was reading it?

We will have three 90-minute meetings for our CCNI Writing Group. At each meeting there will be a presenter who has posted or published to talk about some of the things they do to build their writing. We’ll use a “Listening to Speaker Protocol” to provide you an opportunity to ask questions. We will also have breakout rooms for you to talk about:

• What you want to write,
• What you’ll have written by the next meeting, and
• How you will be held accountable to get that writing done.
• There will also be a Google Form to fill out after each session.
