We all need a coach—someone who has our back, cheers us on, and helps us to grow. Coaching is a way to receive whole life and ministry development. Real relationships with other ministry leaders will help you to be intentional about taking personal and professional next steps. Alliance Youth is pleased to offer the following types of coaching for Alliance Youth leaders in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
A short-term, goal-oriented process to taking the next steps
An 8-week fully online cohort experience.
Assess your ministry health, create strategic plans, structure and staff to the vision, and follow through on your plans.
Youth Ministry Coaching Cohorts
6 weekend sessions over 12 months in a regional coaching cohort led by The Youth Cartel.
Every now and then you need someone outside of your daily world to look at your life and ministry with fresh eyes. Sometimes you feel stuck in your current reality; other times there’s a problem you aren’t sure how to navigate. Sometimes you wonder what’s your next step forward. Other times you experience a ceiling that you’re not sure how to break through. These are times when you need a coach.
Coaching provides a structured space for your inner conversations to be verbalized so you can move forward toward your preferred future. Our 1-on-1 Coaching focuses on articulating your current reality and creating specific, measurable goals. We stand with you as you answer the question: What do you want to achieve? We offer a one-time consultation, three-month coaching plan, or six-month coaching plan, depending upon your goals; and you can extend your contract as needed. For each option, you will receive one 45-60-minute phone or video session every month and have e-mail access to your coach. Each coaching session will also include self-assigned, specific, measurable next steps for you to take for catalytic growth.
Over a 12-month period, you can go through six sessions in a regional coaching cohort. Alliance Youth has partnered with The Youth Cartel to help take ministry leaders to the next level of professional development. Check out the upcoming Cohorts being offered by The Youth Cartel*:

We all have dreams for our ministry, and often times reality doesn’t quite meet those God-given dreams. We need fresh eyes and minds to help us assess, dream, and build the vision that God has placed in our hearts. Whether you have 5 or 500 students in your ministry, there is always a next phase for discipleship and creating the structures that help you do that well. Alliance Youth has a three-phase process to help you realize the dream God has given you for your life.
