5) The Next Mile: A Coach’s Guide —

Change lives before, during and after a short-term mission. The Next Mile: A Coach’s Guide is designed to encourage and equip pastors and lay leaders to follow-through with returning short-term missionaries in a meaningful way. The goal is to see short-termers experience lasting change by helping them determine God’s call on their lives and how they can become more like Christ.  Developed in partnership with Western Seminary’s Transformational Coach Training Program, this guide will equip you with enough information to become an informal coach for a returning short-termer. A short-termer is someone who has participated on a short-term mission team, served at a Christian camp or any type of short-term ministry assignment for as little as a few days to three years.  The basic objectives are 1) For you to know a basic definition of coaching and the unique role coaching plays in a person’s spiritual growth; 2) For you to understand the basic framework of a coaching conversation; 3) For this Coach Guide to serve as a resource in your coaching; 4) To provide the short-termer with intentional help and forward movement as they consider the impact of their trip on the rest of their lives.  The Next Mile is a collaborative effort of mission agencies and organizations joining together to address the “black hole” of short-term missions with resources for effective follow-through. It’s available as an E-Book at:
