The r12 Coach


FCA's discipleship process designed specifically for YOU the coach.

How do I start my own
r12 Coach group?

The fact that you are even reading this page says a lot about you.

It says that you are either one of those people who has to read everything, or you are at least open to being used by God to lead a coaches small group.

Leading a small group can sound intimidating, but it really doesn’t have to be. Think of it more as gathering a few coaches to get to know each other better and to have discussions about spiritual matters.

Your Gameplan for Life

In most athletic contests a coach prepares a game plan ahead of time. God designed a plan for our lives before the world began. God is holy and perfect.

He created us to Love Him, Glorify Him & Enjoy Him forever.

Coaches Mandate

Pray as though nothing of eternal value is going to
  happen in my athletes’ lives unless God does it.

Prepare each practice and game,
  giving my utmost for His highest.

Seek not to be served by my athletes for personal gain,
  but serve them as Christ served the church.

Be satisfied not with producing a winning record,
  but with producing winning athletes.

Attend carefully to my private and public walk with God,
  knowing that the athlete will never rise to a standard higher
  than that being lived by the coach.

Glorify Christ in my coaching,
  trusting the Lord will then draw athletes to Himself.

Desire to have a growing hunger for God’s Word,
  a transformed heart and daily obedience.

Depend solely upon God for transformation,
  one athlete at a time.

Live out Christ’s word in a Christ-like manner,
  on and off the field of competition.

Recognize that it is impossible to bring glory
  to both myself and Christ at the same time.

Allow my coaching to produce the fruit of the Spirit,
  thus producing athletes who are authentic followers of Christ.

Trust God to reveal to my athletes His chosen purposes,
  regardless of whether the wins are clearly visible.

Coach with humble gratitude,
  as one privileged to be God’s coach.
