The Foundations Course for Christian Coaches was designed specifically for equipping Christian lay leaders and pastoral teams, teachers, ministers and others with the tools for reaching and empowering clients who are seeking to grow in the context of their Christian faith and inspiring them to grow in accordance with their God given gifts and talents. This course is the cornerstone of our coach training program, providing students with the training to develop the skills they will need to enter the coaching profession, while incorporating Christian values and teachings in their practice.
This forty-hour course (20 weeks) provides essential knowledge and skills to launch a coaching career through twice-weekly teleclasses and once-a-week Peer Coaching practice and post-class assignments (called fieldwork). The total estimated time commitment per week is 4 to 5 hours. Students will need to have regular access to the internet and ILCT website. Students must attend at least 35 of the 40 teleclasses and complete a written exam with a score of 70% or better in order to successfully pass this course.
Tuition includes 3 hours of mentor coaching, to be conducted during 2 observed peer coaching sessions, providing you with an opportunity to receive individual feedback on your growth as a coach. Students must complete both mentor coaching exercises to receive the 3 hours of mentor coaching credits; students who do not will receive an adjusted amount. All mentor coaching hours can be used to meet part of the requirements for ICF credentialing.

The Christian Foundations class helped define and deepen my "why", while solidifying my passion in being a coach. I am forever impacted.
I felt the Foundations for Christian Coaches course was SO extremely well done. Jonathan and Brian were very supportive, informative and created environments for such confidence building and skill. The level of course material was also incredibly great. Very in depth and interesting. In addition, the support staff at ILCT were particularly wonderful as well. I have been beyond impressed with my relationship with the organization. Excellent service and products!
Brian and Jonathan created a very comfortable learning environment and provided a safe place to develop our coaching skills. I felt that both instructors were interested in our lives and our coaching.
