PRE-CONFERENCE SESSIONS

Church Leaders’ Round Table
Pre-Conference session for church leaders (staff and volunteers) who want to discuss how they can best equip and send B4T professionals and support the B4T movement within their church community.

A New Way to Train B4T Coaches
Presented by seasoned coaches, this course will walk you through a web-based learning environment to train prospective future coaches on the content of Ralph Smith’s coaching handbook and drawing heavily from Patrick Lai’s book, Business for Transformation. Along with the training we will also introduce and preview the new training module and ask for feedback from both experienced coaches and prospective new trainees. You will have a say in coach trainings of the future!
