Often we as leaders that care fall into the trap of savior and rescuer rather than helping people see their need for change and the things that trap them. If we can learn how to coach rather than just give answers and advice, there will be lasting fruit and I believe we will raise up true disciples of Jesus Christ who in turn will do the same. This will truly advance His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven!
I was desiring to learn and have a role model for bringing the gold out of people. I am a communicator and my style lent itself more towards talking, advising and teaching. Renate has taught me the value of good listening skills, summarizing so people can know I’ve truly heard them, and then asking deeper questions, as well as teaching me other tools to help me help them overcome their mental, emotional, relational, spiritual and even physical confusion and come into clarity. Through the scientific understanding of how the brain and body work together as well as reliance on the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit which is such a powerful and beautiful combination.
