• Thanks for this, Larry!

    One thing I would add is that good coaches know how to ask questions that help people discover the answer to the obstacles that block them from ministry success. This rests, in part, on a distinction between coaching and mentoring.

    It is our practice to insure that every interim pastor has a coach of his/her own. We think this follows Jesus’ model of sending his servants out by twos. I have benefited from having a coach in many interim situations.

    Good article. Thanks.
