Pathway to Excellence: A Christian Approach to Coaching
The purpose of this book is to provide athletic coaches with simple methods to enhance their coaching technique. Coaching is teaching. Therefore, coaches must look at their teaching effectiveness in order to become better coaches. In addition, the athletic arena provides a wonderful opportunity for a Christian witness. Often, coaches find it difficult to form a marriage between their coaching and a Christian lifestyle. This book intends to meld the two together, providing clear, effective teacher education and biblical advice to Christian coaches. The book also provides selected scriptures from God’s Word. Can a Christian coach really make a difference? How can one Christian coach save the world of sport? Well, first there is more than one Christian coach out there. Second, if there was only one Christian coach willing to go to battle with Christ, they would fight and win. One coach plus Jesus equals a majority. Recall that it appeared as though David didn’t stand a chance when he went to fight Goliath. David was not alone. David knew that God would be with him. Was he afraid? Maybe, but his faith in God was greater than his fear! Hopefully, this book motivates coaches to allow their faith in Christ to shine through their coaching style and behavior.
