RW Coach Certificate

Helping Others to Improve Their Relational and Peacemaking Skills

RW Coach™ Certificate

Strengthening Relational and Peacemaking Skills in Others

Please see our Academic Catalog for information on how this course relates to and synchronizes with other courses and training tracks.

Purpose: RW Coach training will equip you to provide two types of ministry. Through conflict coaching you can assist others in applying the principles of relational wisdom and peacemaking to resolve specific existing conflicts.

Through RW skills coaching (a relationally focused form of life coaching) you can assist others in accelerating the development of key relational skills that enable them to develop stronger relationships and “get upstream of conflict."

A key goal of coaching is to help others strengthen and apply key relational skills so they are less likely to experience serious relational problems that would eventually require pastoral intervention or prolonged counseling (see Guiding People Through Conflict).

Cost: $395 | Study: 20 hours | Application: 20 hours | Total Time: 40 hours

Prerequisites: Complete Discovering Relational Wisdom and Relational Peacemaking courses, either online through the RW Academy or by leading group studies, which are available through the RW360 Bookstore.

Training Requirements: Read and summarize three relevant books, complete Conflict Coaching Course and Practicum* and RW Skills Course and Practicum,** as well as 10 hours of practical experience.

Peace Sower Team: Individuals who complete this training will be prepared to serve on a Peace Sower Team in their church, ministry or business.

Further Training: Students who complete this course are eligible to pursue an Advanced RW Coach Certificate and a Certified RW Coach Certificate.
