What is Christian Life Coaching?

In general, life coaching is the process of helping someone figure out where they are, where they want to be, and how to get there. Christian life coaching takes this idea and looks at it through the lens of the Bible and from a Christian point of view. (Gary Collins)

Christian life coaching is based on the idea that God has a plan for your life and wants to help you live it. It helps you find that plan and gives you support as you carry it out.

It is not the same thing as counselling. Counselling focuses on the past and how to move on from its affects so that you can function well in the present. Christian life coaching looks to the future and helps you come up with plans to overcome problems and reach your goals.

It’s also not the same as mentoring. A Christian mentor helps people grow by giving away what God has given them. A Christian coach shows you how to use what God has given you.

Think about a personal trainer. He works with you to figure out where you are, what your weaknesses and strengths are, and what you can truly hope to achieve. Together, you decide how to get there. It is all about you. He cheers you on and holds you accountable, keeps you focused on the end goal, and pushes you to try new things because he knows you can do it.

Christian life coaching gives you a similar relationship. Everything is about you. Your coach helps you feel hopeful again and shines God’s grace on the goals He gave you. He supports you, holds you responsible, helps you make plans, and cheers you on as you grow into the person God made you to be. He prays for you and keeps your hopes and dreams alive.

The client will be told to pay attention to his or her own skills and what the client thinks is right. On the other hand, a Christian life coach will look to the Holy Spirit for direction and tell clients to do the same. Clients will be encouraged to get closer to God and to make it a habit to look for and follow God’s will and direction.

What can You Expect from a Christian Coach?

A Christian life coach takes a biblical perspective when guiding clients. Therefore, he or she accepts the following crucial truths:

  • Everyone was created in God’s likeness and image.
  • God is in charge.
  • God is all-knowing.
  • God loves to guide, empower, encourage, and help his children through life.
  • Only when people live in accordance with God’s ideas and designs can they experience true fulfilment.

Christian life coaching is based on the understanding that God, not human intellect or providence, is the source of all achievement.
