Why does EvangeLead offer coaching? Great question!
verb [with object] train or instruct (a team or player): he has coached the Edmeston Panthers for six years. • give (someone) extra or private teaching: he was coached to speak more slowly and curb his hand gestures. • teach (a subject or sport) as a coach: a Washington realtor who coaches soccer. • prompt or urge (someone) with instructions: he had improperly coached the witness to testify more credibly.
Throughout college and seminary, I was taught that evangelism, the way it has been traditionally done, does not work. It was in only a few years that I found that to be untrue. It does still work, when you do it right. Our goal at EvangeLead is to help people do evangelism right in the 21st century.
Coaching comes from the sports world where someone is on the sidelines helping the players do their job better. Throughout history, someone who understands the game can teach someone else who does not understand it as well. They can pass on knowledge, skill, and even much in the way of passion for the game.
Evangelism isn’t a game, but our numbers show that we have done it right, and we have actively trained many others to do it right and they have seen similar success. This does NOT take the place of the Holy Spirit working on the congregation or the community, but it is taking away from the dumb things we do to limit the success and then we strive to do it right with the power of the Holy Spirit.
