Learn the skills and competencies of coaching

Certifications

1. Successfully complete Level I – Coaching Skills for Kingdom Life
2. Successfully complete Level II – Coach Training Intensive
3. Successfully complete two Level III Coach Training Courses
4. Successfully complete and document a minimum of 25 hours of individual coaching
with two or more people
 These coaching hours are to be based on a more formal coaching agreement
(verbal or written) with another person, not simply a casual conversation where
some coaching skills may be utilized.
 Hours need to be documented listing date, the name of the person being
coached and the number of hours coached. An Excel document or equivalent is
preferred for documentation.
5. Submittal of two 500 word book reports on Leadership Coaching and Coaching
Questions, both by Tony Stoltzfus.
6. Successfully complete a minimum of three (3) hours of mentor coaching with a
Certified Bethel Coach Trainer or Certified Bethel Coach
 A per-session fee will be included for the mentor coach’s time.
 These sessions involve the applicant coaching a third person (of their choice)
while the mentor coach observers.
 Sessions will be 45 minutes of coaching with a 15 minute evaluation debrief lead
by the mentor coach.
 It is recommended the mentor sessions be spread out over the process of
accumulating the 25 hours of coaching practice so that feedback can be applied
in the coaching practice sessions.
7. Finally, all applicants must be signed off by a Certified Bethel Coach Trainer
Note: Although not specifically required for certification, additional peer coaching practice
(pairing up with another coach-in- training and taking turns coaching each other and giving
feedback) is strongly encouraged for all those pursuing this certificate of completion. This
would be in addition to the 25 hours of documented coaching required.
