Training

Through our Regional Growth Hubs, Vision Ventures provides a monthly training experience that is followed two weeks later with a personal coaching session. A trained coach partners with each participant to help clarify their desired outcome, to identify hindrances to needed changes, and to determine the most helpful action steps that they are committed to take. The clarity, encouragement and healthy accountability are part of what make the combination of training and coaching such a powerful experience.

What our clients have said…

Through self-evaluation in multiple areas of my life, Coach Training has started me on a lifelong process of growth. Setting goals and being held accountable to move forward are having a tremendous impact on my ministry.

The coach training process has taught me multiple spiritual and leadership skills in ministry. I used to be heavy on giving advice which was not always good for me or those I tried to help. This training has given me new insights in ways to be a better minister.

Coaching has turned me in to a ‘caring pastor’ because of improvement in listening. Others have actually witnessed the change in me and have commented on it

High-value results have been directly correlated to personal coaching.
