A Christian coach uses similar techniques to a secular coach BUT Christian coaching has its own UNIQUE flavour. There are concepts within secular coaching that are incompatible with Godly principles.
The most important difference is that a Christian life coach brings a Biblical world-view.
Secular coaches invite you to look within and listen for what your heart is telling you. They encourage you to focus on your inner strengths and what you feel is right. There are no absolutes, few rules, and God doesn't come into the process.
God tells us that,
”There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” Proverbs 14:12, 16:25
Scripture repeatedly reminds us that you can do nothing without God and that He is the source of everything.
Life coaching from a Christ centered approach begins with the fact that God empowers and enables you to be all that He destined you to be.
