Here at Gateway Church we desire for everyone to be a spiritual champion. Having a ‘COACH’ to meet with, pray with, be taught and encouraged by will help achieve this. We desire for all champions to also be a ‘COACH’.
We aspire to be people who care for one another and embody the love, peace and hope promised by God and found in the life of Jesus.
Matthew 28:19,20 ‘Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples (those who are already believers and those who are new believers) to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’(NLT)
COACHING (Gateway def): A person who, through their connection with an individual, instructs, trains, and encourages that individual to connect with God and the local church, to prepare them for a purpose - that purpose is life, the best Godly life.
CONNECTION: We exist to be in relationship. This life is about relationships; our relationship with God and our relationship with all people, especially God’s family, His church. ‘Coaching’ is an area in which we can care and nurture one another, building each other up in the Lord. John 16:33 ‘I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.’ (MSG)
Are you going through a difficult time? If not, brace yourself. We are warned that we will experience difficulties in this life and when the difficulties come it is so important to have a COACH to help us to ‘take heart’, to help us to stay connected to God, to encourage us to lean on Him and trust in Him.
Do you have someone you can ask to pray for you and with you?
Do you have someone you can trust to confide in about any struggles or hardships you are going through? Do you have someone you can go to for advice, encouragement and for Godly wisdom, someone who is Godly and wiser, further on in experience and maturity in their walk with the Lord?
