Individual Coaching

More than just warm encouragement in your ministry, it’s a robust, accountable, and structured coaching process designed to equip you in growing a disciple-making culture.


Individual coaching is for pastors who prefer a one on one approach to support them as they lead The Vine Project in their ministry. It consists of ten (10) x 75-90 minute monthly coaching sessions, access to the coaches via phone & email, and online coaching hub to support your learning.

WHY INDIVIDUAL COACHING?

Individual Coaching allows us to be singularly focused on you and your context. It’s more than just warm encouragement in your ministry. It’s a robust, accountable, and structured coaching process designed to grow and equip you in leading change and growing a disciple-making culture.

Through a combination of our face-to-face sessions and the Online Coaching Hub you receive valuable support and accountability. We also identify and address areas of your leadership that might impact the culture change process taking place via The Vine Project.

Aims of Coaching

Through Individual Coaching you will learn how to:

  • Provide clear, purposeful leadership to your Vine Project team.
  • Overcome your contextual roadblocks that inhibit culture change.
  • Develop clear plans to equip your people as disciple-makers.
  • Utilise the skills and strategies needed to implement those plans over time.

“Having a Jesus-centred, Bible-loving, discipleship-focused coach has been one of the most significant ways God has answered our prayers and has been crucial in turning good intentions into a sharper vision, a detailed action plan and a changing church culture. Regular coaching, prayer and follow through has provided a real life-line.”

Leigh Roberts, Senior Pastor, Bulli Anglican Church, Australia

Evaluating Sunday as your Flagship

The Sunday church gathering is perhaps the most significant trellis shaping your church culture. If you want a deeply rooted disciple-making culture every component of your formal gathering must reinforce the culture you are seeking. Getting this right is a crucial component of church-wide culture change.

Through the lens of the 4P’s and 4E’s (discussed in The Vine Project), our coaches conduct a wide ranging in person and/or video evaluation of your formal gathering. We ask the question – ‘How is each element reinforcing or undermining disciple-making culture change’? You will receive a report with recommendations, plus a coaching session for the pastor (with the staff team if preferred).

As soon as you like. We recommend an initial session when you are considering who to approach for your Vine Project team.
Whilst maximum benefit is achieved when we walk alongside you from start to finish, we can commence our coaching relationship with you after you have started leading TVP. Please make note of this on the application form and we can discuss with you the best way forward.
The sessions will typically last 75-90 minutes. You should allocate 30 minutes for preparation and at least 30 minutes to review the session. We provide questionnaires to assist you in this process.
Formally the coaching relationship will come to an end. Upon mutual agreement it may be beneficial to continue some form of coaching relationship in the early stages of implementing The Vine Project.
