the Convergence group helps facilitate personal and leadership growth and transformation through individual and group mentor coaching. Mentoring tends to "put into" while coaching tends to "draw out." The role of the Holy Spirit is key to life transformation and the mentor coach attempts to cooperate with the work of the Spirit in the interactions with the client(s).
Through establishing healthy learning relationships and communities a mentor coach can assist the client(s) to discover life and leadership lessons that they can begin to integrate into their life and leadership for impact and effectiveness. the Convergence group accomplishes this through individual mentor coaching, small discovery learning groups, and training others in mentor, coaching, and spiritual direction.
Individual mentor coaching
Mentor coaching is a combination of "input" and "drawing out" to help a person grow and be transformed in Bible-centered and Spirit-empowered ways for focused living and finishing well. Regular individualized meetings with an effective mentor coach can help provide resources, support, encouragement, and accountability needed to help gain perspective, skills, and faith to get to the next level as a person and leader.

Small discovery learning groups
Discovery learning involves individuals taking responsibility for their own growth by learning how to appropriate the resources of the Bible and the Holy Spirit in healthy learning communities. If you discover it you own it and have a great chance of applying it for life transformation. the Convergence group provides leadership and training to help establish and multiply these types of learning groups using the workbook resources developed by Paul Leavenworth (see Resource section).
