At Hope Partnership’s Leadership Academy, coaches are tentatively assigned the pastors they will coach. Coaches then work with their pastors through the weeklong event to determine if the assignment is a good “fit.”
As soon as possible after the Academy, a coach will make an on-site visit, spending up to two days with the pastor in his or her area.
A pastor is responsible for contacting his or her coach at least once a month, and the coach is responsible for listening effectively, asking good questions and making helpful responses.
