What is the Missional Formation Coaching Model?
“More than ever before, missional leaders need help to be able to navigate the changes and challenges of the chaotic world we live in.

Read it and put it into practice! ”

Planters often find themselves in unique situations facing unusual challenges, and they need all the help they can get. This important model and the accompanying book is an essential manual for anyone wanting to support church planters and multiply their effectiveness, longevity and health. Read it, digest it, use it!” –
