About Center for Christian Coaching
What is CCC?
Center for Christian Coaching (CCC) provides training and certification courses for those who are seeking to serve God by serving others as a Professional Christian Coach. This program is based on Biblical principles and reflects what we learn from Jesus about the process of coaching.
Jesus exemplified the skills of coaching through His communication with others. Focusing on this perspective brings enlightenment to the heart and soul of both the coach and the client.

Our Dedicated Team at CCC
Bonnie Weiss, PCC
Founder & Director
Bonnie Weiss, P.C.C, B.C.C. is the Founder and Director of Center for Christian Coaching. Her background in training and development reflects her passion for helping others succeed in life and career. Combining this with a passion for God and His children worldwide, led to the creation of Center for Christian Coaching.
In 2011, Bonnie discovered the transformational power of Life Coaching and has been coaching ever since. For the past 10 years, Bonnie has been training and certifying coaches from around the world. As a Christian, she realized that true transformation is only found in the power and love of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
In 2019, Bonnie, led by the Holy Spirit, launched Center for Christian Coaching, a Life Coach Training School centered on the Teachings of Jesus and Principles of God’s Word.
Bonnie believes that as Christians gather to learn, God works in mighty ways and great things happen. Through the direction of the Holy Spirit, she has created a Life Coach Training Program that allows people of faith to learn in an environment that honors God and fully acknowledges Him for the insight and wisdom of successful coaching.
Instructor & Student Support

Before coming to Center for Christian Coaching, Susan spent 30 years as an educator, with almost 20 of those years spent as a school principal. She loved the years spent in training, mentoring and coaching students, teachers and families. Once leaving that profession, she sought the Lord’s counsel for a new direction in her life. He directed her to Center for Christian Coaching, where she became certified as a Christian Life Coach.
Susan is thankful for the Lord leading her to CCC and igniting a passion for Christian Coaching. She loves the opportunity to teach future coaches and watch the Lord transform students into Christian Coaches who allow the Holy Spirit to make a difference in the lives of their clients.

She became a Certified Life Coach in 2012 and has been coaching ever since. In 2021 she became a Certified Health Coach.
As a Christ follower Sue believes that true, lasting transformation is only obtained through the power and love of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. She incorporates a Christ-centered approach in her coaching by inviting God into the coaching relationship (with the permission of the client) and using tools such as prayer and Scripture. She believes that it is possible to live a victorious and fulfilling life, even with a chronic illness.
After completing the training program at Center for Christian Coaching in 2019 Sue joined CCC in 2020 as a class assistant. It is her greatest joy and blessing to work with the students and help them become the Christian Life Coaches God is calling them to be so that they can go out and touch other lives for God’s kingdom!
