New Beginnings Training for Coaches

Welcome to the New Beginning Coaches Portal!

This portal has been created to support you in your work as a coach by gathering resources and reporting tools in a centralized location.

The role you play as a coach is of vital importance to the New Beginnings process. Your guidance helps congregations identify and move towards their new beginning. Further, the information gathered in your mid and final reports helps Canadian Ministries develop appropriate resources for participants and provides information that will help further the growth of the program.

Reporting Tools

Below are links the the various online forms that will assist you in gathering all the information required to complete your coaching tasks. Fillable PDF versions follow.

Coaching Covenant:  The Coaching Covenant outlines what is required in each coaching relationship and collects information for the payment process.  The covenant must be submitted before beginning a coaching relationship.

Monthly Check-In: The Monthly Check-In is a tool designed to help coaches keep track of coaching conversations and implementation team progress.  The information stored in this document is confidential and will only be accessed by the coach.  Coaches are free to develop their own tracking system if preferred.

Final Report: The Final Report is the report that describes the progress made by the participant during the coaching relationship.  This report concludes the covenanting relationship with the congregation. Upon approval of the Final Report the concluding honorarium payment will be issued to the coach.
