Dr. Gary R. Collins, a well-known author in the field of counseling, takes the successful principles of coaching and gives them a God-centered application.

Through stories, insights, and interviews with influential coaches, Collins presents a model of Christian coaching.

Christian Coaching will help you learn the characteristics of an effective coach, how to build those characteristics into your life, and how to coach and lead others with the same leadership style Jesus demonstrated -- servant leadership.
