The Christian Life Coach uses biblical principles to govern the coaching process. Their focus is to hold true to the word of God while helping people to find clarity, solve problems and reach their goals. They are good listeners who provide support, encouragement and motivation that people need in order to stay the course on their journey toward their goals.
The difference between Christian and Secular Coaching is obvious. However, it does not mean that you coach people who are not Christians. You can coach anyone you want and you are trained to the same degree a other Life Coaches as a Christian life coach.
