Coaching Cohort & 501 Fall Class Opportunities

Class 501 is a prerequisite for all courses, but once completed, remaining classes may be taken in any order the student desires. The Coaching Cohort has already started, but the 501 class is still open to any that are interested!

Coaching Cohort with Coach Approach Ministries

If you have taken classes 501, and either 502 or 503 and want to complete your requirements for certification with Coach Approach Ministries as a Christian Leadership Coach, Julie will now be offering mentor coaching to help you meet the ten hours required.

On August 25th we will begin our own Portfolio Prep Package! Cost for the entire ten hours of mentor coaching will be $500. This is special pricing for Thrive coaching students.

Seven hours would be group coaching that will include being coached, being the coach, and being the observer/offering feedback.  Three will be one-on-one coaching with a mentor coach.  This PPP fulfills the mentor coaching requirement for both Coach Approach certification (CCLC) and ICF certification (ACC).

Kindly contact Alex Austin ( or Julie (, and let us know if you want to participate. Please respond soon, there is limited amount of space for this cohort.

Date & Location Starts August 25th | Continue for a minimum of 90 days. Coaching is done by conference call as one hour calls.
