Creswell draws from her extensive corporate and ministry coaching experience to provide ministers and other church leaders a clear definition of what coaching is and the seven basic benefits an individual, church, or group can receive through a qualified coach. Solidly based in experience, each chapter is built upon an actual scenario growing out of Creswell's own coaching experience. Along with the illustration, she provides scriptural teaching, gives explicit information on the purpose and merits of coaching, additional resources, and tips for coaching.


“Richly illustrated with case histories, biblical guidelines, and practical insights, this is a helpful overall introduction to what coaching is and to what it can do, especially in ministry situations. Jane Creswell’s book reflects her in-depth experiences as a coach, pioneer in the coaching movement, and teacher of coaching, all combined in a volume written by a skilled and established coaching professional.”

“A bridge. I was looking for a bridge, the crossing of which would turn knowing about excellent ministry into doing excellent ministry. Coaching Creswell-style has clearly provided that bridge for many Western team members, alumni, and students. If you’ve been on a search for that bridge, look no further than the biblical, missional, transformational and delightful message of this book. It’s not just a must read—it’s a must do.”
—Bert Downs, president, Western Seminary
