transform churches - and lives. Small group leaders often feel the weight of shepherding their
members. But who shepherds the shepherd? Small group coaches fill this unique role by providing support
and guidance for group leaders.
When you're called to coach a small group leader in your church, your mind may be filled with questions: Am I godly enough? What do I have to offer? How do I begin?
Although the challenge seems immense, Bill Donahue and Greg Bowman break down the work of coaching small group leaders into achievable steps. This expanded and updated edition offers field-tested and biblically supported advice on such topics as modeling a surrendered life to those you coach, gaining the tools and wisdom you need for coaching, and helping leaders grow spiritually.
This workbook can be used as a stand-alone resource to train coaches, or it can be used with the training videos taught by the authors, available on the Equipping Life-Changing Small Groups DVD (sold separately). For those who want to coach with excellence and truly help small group leaders thrive, this go-to guide offers practical answers and inspiring examples. You'll find both challenge and promise in these pages as you learn to carry forth your God-given calling with confidence.

Comments from people who have used this
“We ask small group leaders to come alongside their group members, but
often no one comes alongside them. This is a great tool from two people
who have done exactly that for a long time. Small group leaders
everywhere will benefit from this kind of coaching.” - Dr. Henry Cloud
