A Circles coach will help Circle leaders become better—better leaders, better followers of Jesus, and better humans.


  • Encourage Circle leaders spiritually and in their leadership journey.
  • Connect with Circle leaders in your sphere of influence on a weekly or monthly basis.
  • Get to know the leaders within your focus area, take a genuine interest in them, and build relationships that foster trust, authenticity, and care. Regular connection, consistency, affirmation, and prayer will be essential.
  • Equip leaders with skills, goals, resources, or what they need to succeed.
  • Take on the posture of ‘coming alongside’ our leaders to assist in accomplishing a task, launching a new group or initiative, or navigating a tough situation.
  • Help leaders under your care to grow their Circle by answering questions, offering support, or locating resources.
  • Empower leaders to reach their full potential.
  • Keep an eye on the future especially in relation to leaders under your care. Help pull out the skills, gifts, and potential within your leaders. Just like any good coach of a sports team. You can help them become all they can be, develop new leaders under their influence, or unleash the hero-maker inside of them.
  • Collaborate with the Circle coordinator for any needs, updates, or questions that will help your ministry and the ministry of Circle leaders.


  • Actively pursue a life-giving, growing, obedient, and genuine relationship with Jesus.
  • Eagerly support Grand Point including its mission, values, leaders, and vision for the future.
