Coaching is a relatively new industry. So I don’t think any of us even considered being a coach when we were growing up. I imagine most of us thought about being teachers, doctors, veterinarians, NFL quarterbacks, or any other number of traditional professions.
However, today, coaching is a large industry with a low barrier to entry. What do I mean by this? Well, you do not need a brick and mortar building or fancy, expensive software, or even employees. A lot of coaching is done either over the phone or online using a video conferencing program, like Zoom or Skype.
But this is not the best thing about Christian coaching. Not even close!
The very best thing about being a Christian coach is having the knowledge, training, and ability to make a difference in the world . . . by making a difference in people’s lives as God’s instrument.
