ADULTS / COACHES

PURPOSE

Parents and teachers are the first coaches of communication and leadership in the lives of today’s students. At Communicators for Christ conferences, coaches are invited into workshops for the purpose of gaining new and renewed understanding of coaching the next generation for real influence in today’s culture. This year’s coach workshops will take a deeper dive into some of the topics recently encountered at ICC events. Familiar topics will be studied and applied in richer, fuller ways with new opportunities, tools, and resources for continued growth beyond the conference. Our purpose extends beyond giving you valuable information. We want to connect you with a life-giving community. You will experience the genuine support and encouragement you need to develop your own inspiring vision of what is not only possible, but attainable for your own students.
