Gospel-centered leaders are essential to the mission of God!

Every year, Dr. Tom Wood, the pioneer of Gospel Coaching, opens the opportunity for a select group of Christian men and women to learn how to gospel coach. It's a robust and effective process that leads to deep life change in those who learn and those who receive gospel coaching.

CMM's hope and prayer is that 100s of men and women in local churches, ministries and non-profits will be equipped and empowered as gospel coaches to have life-changing, regular, intentional gospel conversations with 1000s of other leaders in the US and around the globe.

Already CMM's gospel coaching is expanding across the US, the UK, Cuba and on every continent. Our burden is that we want it to flourish in every church in the US too!

Foundations, Practicum, and Evaluation

We are absolutely committed to the gospel and that makes our C.R.O.S.S. Gospel Coaching unique. We don't just give good advice. Gospel Coaches apply the gospel to the specific challenges faced today.

Start with Foundations

In the 2.5 day, in-person Foundations Seminar, CMM's thorough process begins with vital training in grace renewal dynamics, coaching skills, and initial experience in Gospel Coaching to prepare for the post-seminar cohorts. 

Post-Seminar Training Cohorts
and 360 Degree Evaluation

Each participant will be assigned a facilitator and placed in a group of three for a 12-session follow up skill development practicum. These practicums, or "trihorts" are where you learn to gospel coach in real time. 

Trihorts meet via video for six 2-2.5-hour sessions where each person coaches, gets coached and observes coaching under the direction of a trained CMM facilitator.  

Dates and times for the six video sessions are decided mutually among each group and generally meet every three weeks. Participants also engage in six gospel coaching sessions with someone in ministry or leadership for a season of implementation.  

This process enables participants to apply the theory and skill for maximum learning. 

At the conclusion of the practicum, each participant will receive written feedback on their growth and development as a gospel coach through a 360-degree online evaluation. The facilitator, fellow participants, and coachee plus a self-evaluation provide significant input and steps for implementation and improvement.

Interested in Training as a Gospel Coach?

CMM desires to equip, train, and empower 1000s of men and women as gospel coaches to spread grace renewal dynamics where we live, work and worship. For free.

Seminars and cohorts have limited space to ensure interactive training that utilizes the best adult-learning methods. This ensures you learn to coach in real time for the sake of God’s Kingdom.

The information in this brief questionnaire and optional follow up interview, helps CMM get to know you and discern your readiness to invest in this life-changing skill.
