This is the first coaching meeting. There are no new tools to learn. The format for coaching meetings is different from that of training meetings. They have three main parts: Review, Assist, and Schedule.
Review (20 minutes)
Look over the Big Picture. It’s a ten-thousand-foot view of the entire disciple-making process. Notice there are two parts to disciple making: local disciple making and global disciple making. They are both listed to inform you that there is more to disciple making than just doing it locally. Begin becoming a global disciple maker anytime by going through those resources. For now, focus just on the local aspect of disciple making. Hopefully, you have some level of working knowledge of the process, terminology, and tools. If not, at least you’ll know where to go for more learning.
Assist (60 minutes)
Ask the group two questions. The group leader should ask the entire group to respond to these two questions: "Based on the Big Picture, where are you in the local disciple making process?" and "How can I (we) help you move forward?" Take advantage of the team by encouraging everyone to participate in helping others. Reteach whatever tools are necessary. If there are some who need help with Tell and some who need help with Teach, break into two groups, and let some members of the group encourage others by re-teaching or just encouraging.
Schedule (10 minutes).
