What We Help You Achieve:

Once you have successfully completed our training program, you will be a Certified Christian Life Coach (C.C.L.C.) You’ll be able to help clients make progress with all areas of their life. Our program is taught in a Christian environment, and we will prepare you to work with clients from every walk of life.

Center for Christian Coaching offers a Christian Coach Certification that is recognized by the International Coach Federation (ICF) for 78 hours of Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH). This means you can earn your Christian Life Coach Certification as well as build specific coach training hours for ICF credentialing. Please note: Completing our Mentor Coaching Course does not automatically qualify you for the ICF ACC Credential. The ICF has additional requirements that you can read about here.


At CCC we provide all the skills training, resources, and tools necessary to build a thriving coaching practice - all in a Christian training environment. Our “virtual classrooms” are highly interactive, allowing you to experience coaching for yourself as you learn to coach others. Both of our instructors, Bonnie Weiss and Susan Underwood, are Christian Coaches credentialed through the International Coach Federation.


”I have just completed the Christian Coaching Course with Bonnie Weiss. It was an amazing 17 weeks with a wonderful group of women from East Coast to West Coast and in-between! Bonnie skillfully led us through life coaching skills, keeping in mind the presence and work of the Holy Spirit within us.


The course perspective was a reminder that God’s Holy wisdom is available to us through every challenge, transition or problem we face in life. Bonnie wove that Christian integration into teaching life coaching and spiritual coaching tools. I thoroughly enjoyed the course work and instruction, and I hope that I can emulate Bonnie’s gentle style when I begin my work as a Christian Life Coach".
