ICS supports mission partners through one-to-one coaching on Zoom or Skype. This allows new mission partners to receive in-depth coaching as they settle into a role or helps existing mission partners who face challenges.

Much has been written about the benefits of coaching, the way it enables people to achieve goals, become more self-reliant, contribute more effectively to the team and organisation and generally to work more effectively. So many ICS mission partners work in isolation, so this opportunity has a huge benefit and is proving to be transformative in the impact on chaplains. 

Be it for those first few months when a person is settling into a new locality or role, or in the midst of a significant challenge or change like during the COVID pandemic, coaching provides the opportunity for someone to accompany the mission partner in a non-directive way that prayerfully guides them towards better outcomes.

You can help contribute to the cost of supporting this valuable ministry.
