Our July Training in Nairobi

Dr. Jim Robey and Attentional Growth Inc have begun to train a new generation of Christian leaders in Africa using the Coaching4Clergy model. From its beginning, Coaching4Clergy has had at its core a global vision of Every Pastor, Ministry Staff and Church Leader a Coach. An invitation has come to bring the coaching model of equipping and empowering lay and clergy to the countries of Kenya, South Africa and Swaziland. Attentional Growth Inc, under the leadership of Jim Robey, is responding!

This is a quickly unfolding process, and in partnership with Petronilla Maina of Kingdom Lifestyle in Nairobi, we offered two different training events to equip clergy and lay leadership with coaching skills.

The One Day Training event was 3 July, and was an introduction to coaching and its use in the church as we are making disciples. Each person coached and was coached, and left the event with coaching tools they can use in life, work and the church. The Two DayTraining was 5-6 July, and included more skill training in coaching. Click on the names to see a brochures for each event . These were be held in Nairobi at the ACK Guest House.

These training events will be useful for both business and church leaders, so the impact of the training will be increased. It is our plan, with our partners, for local potential coaches to be identified and given additional training, both on the continent of Africa and in the US. It is our desire to be useful in growing the Kingdom of God.

Where Petronilla worships.
After breakfast on Sunday, Petro took me to her church, where I was warmed received. I was invited to bring greetings, which I did. I mentioned then"Barnabas" is the example of what a coach does-- comes along side. What a great experience and thenpriviledge to receive communion. A great day.

  2. With the majority of Kenyans being Christians Coaching as a tool of development, can easily penetrate the region through such kinds of forums.
