Our Mission: Develop a coaching culture in the Southern Missouri District
SMD Coaching Network is a vehicle for training and multiplying quality coaches who will in turn coach pastors and their wives, church leadership, and communities in the Southern Missouri District. The purpose of coaching is helping someone succeed. And what is success? It’s finding out what God wants you to do and then, doing it. Given that definition, success will certainly look different with different people, but is will all be tied into accomplishing biblical mission. Far from a top-down program designed to accomplish pre-conceived ends, coaching empowers each individual believer to listen to the Spirit of God and act in accordance with the unique mission they sense God calling them toward. Coaching is essentially listening to the Spirit and taking action accordingly, with a structure of accountability already built in.
