Province V is grateful to announce that the Leadership Coaching Project (LCP) has been chosen as a recipient of a grant from the Church Periodical Club.  The $1278 grant will provide books for continuing education to the 24 LCP coaches.  Each coach will receive a copy of Group and Team Coaching (Essential Coaching Skills and Knowledge) by Christine Thornton.  They will also be able to choose one of the two following books:  The Coach Model for Christian Leaders: Powerful Leadership Skills for Solving Problems, Reaching Goals, and Developing Others by Keith E. Webb or TransforMissional Coaching: Empowering Leaders in a Changing Ministry World by Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl.  The LCP coaches meet monthly and will be able to use these resources as part of their continuing education work together.  And of course, these books will in turn help the coaches help YOU.

The Church Periodical Club (CPC) is an independent, affiliated organization of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church, dedicated to the worldwide Ministry of the Printed Work and to the Promotion of Christian Mission. It is the only organization in the Episcopal Church dedicated solely to providing free literature and related material, both religious and secular, to people all over the world who need and request them.  The CPC is funded by voluntary contributions from all levels of the Church by people in the pews.  Click CPC Donations if you are interested in donating.  If you have questions about CPC or how to get more information for your local ministry context, contact Maryfran Crist.

The Province V Executive Board is grateful to the Church Periodical Club and the leaders of Province V who made this grant possible.  The trained coaches of the Leadership Coaching Project are available for leaders across the church. See more information here.
