The Association for Professional Christian Coaches
Since 1998, Christian Coaches Network International, a non-profit organization, has been the leading credentialing body in the field of Christian coaching, helping to ensure professional competence and a common standard of excellence and ethics in Christian practice.
We credential coaches who are adept at coaching within the framework of a faith-based worldview.
We recognize and promote faith-based coach training programs built on solid coaching foundations.
We also support Christian coaches by providing information, events, networking, and opportunities to grow in business and in practice.
At the cross-section of coaching, faith and professional practice.
Christian Coaches Network International is devoted to the support of its members and to the advancement of professional coaching standards and ethics in the Christian coaching industry. Our coaches and coach training schools are making an impact through their profession and through their faith.
Distinctly Coaching: Coaching is a distinct and powerful influence for personal and professional growth. It is a completely different modality than pastoring, counseling, consulting, leading, mentoring, discipling, or teaching.
Distinctly Professional: Because the coaching industry is unregulated, there are broad categories of coaches those who align themselves with industry standards and those who do not. CCNI promotes alignment with industry standards for professional practice.
Distinctly Christian: Professional coaching techniques and Christianity are for the most part congruent. Because faith is integral to our identity, it influences our coaching whether or not we coach in the general market or exclusively in faith circles.
Christian Coaches Network International is a membership organization of Christian coaching professionals started by Judy Santos, MCC in 1998. Our coaches represent a broad cross section of life, career, business, ministry and leadership experience, expertise and specialty focus. Member coaches share a common love for the Lord Jesus Christ and a commitment to striving for excellence in delivering their various services, products and programs.
