Auburn Theological Seminary in New York City introduces a new program bringing the best of business and professional coaching into the sphere of theological education and ministerial support.
The Auburn Coaching Institute is designed by and for people dedicated to furthering the mission of the church through effective leadership and ministries. Church leaders from across a spectrum of backgrounds and locations have experienced coaching through classes at Auburn and through the New York Sabbatical Institute, a program funded by the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and administered by Auburn in partnership with Union and New York Theological Seminaries.
Now Auburn is partnering with Dr. Ellen McGrath, founder of the Bridge Coaching Institute, to offer a comprehensive coaching program for church leaders. During the course of the program year, participants attend two skills training workshops in which they learn from professional coaches and practice coaching skills with peers. In addition, they participate in bi-weekly individual coaching sessions with an assigned coach, and develop peer partnerships for ongoing counsel and practice.
The 2006-07 program year begins this fall. For further information visit www.auburnsem.org, or e-mail [email protected].
