Coaching ... a means of development for our leaders!
Life Coaching is one of the most effective transformative processes for the development of leaders. Though still very new as a profession, coaching has shown to have produced significant results in the areas of efficiency, productivity and effectiveness. It brings focus, intentionality and direction through various coaching tools such as values assessment, goal setting, accountability structures, life purpose statements, and perspective wheels; just to name a few.
Working with a coach can assist you to envision an inspiring future, and make a plan to get you there! Your coach can walk you through the process of defining your core values, and crafting a life purpose statement that reflects who you were born to be.
Through active listening, challenging, and asking great questions, the coach seeks to draw the answer out of the client. It's a unique time where the coach is totally reliant on the client to be the expert and come up with their own plan
Coaching is not limited to face-to-face meetings. Coaching can be very effective over the phone or Skype.
The Alberta and NWT District values and endorses Life Coaching as a means of leadership development for their Credential Holders. Following is a list of Coaches from our District family who have completed an approved International Coaching Federation (ICF) training program:

The Alberta and NWT District Executive Committee has approved a Sabbatical Leave Policy for the District Executive Officers. This policy is being offered to PAOC Alberta and NWT District Churches and Ministries to consider for the Credential Holders serving them.
The purpose of the sabbatical leave is to allow the individual to pursue a plan of personal renewal and growth in cooperation with the Holy Spirit that may combine study, travel, relaxation, education and research. More importantly it is an opportunity for those who have given consistently of themselves in teaching and ministry to refill their own hearts and resources in order that they might continue to lead the congregation and serve the Lord in this calling.
