Coaching Power for New Connections

Group 236

​The mission of the coaching movement in the ELCA is to: “Multiply leaders through coaching.” The coaching movement in the ELCA began nearly 15 years ago, and today is actively raising up and deploying coaches in synods across the ELCA to empower the vitality of our leaders and congregations everywhere.

MetroDC Coaches is powered by the New Connections Campaign in the Metro D.C. Synod, even as coaching strengthens leaders in their New Connections endeavors. It exists to empower pastors, congregational leaders, and congregations to greater and more effective mission, towards congregational vitality, and towards growth.
