A key part of Coaching is training.  DELTA's Team Leader Training will give your leaders practical, hands-on instruction on building:

  • Character
  • Team unity
  • Bridges to culture
  • Debriefing and follow-through

TEAM LEADER TRAINING - This training is aimed equipping new team leaders or improving current leadership. The goal is to move team leaders from being a team facilitator to discipler and spiritual shepherd. Team leaders are challenged to think of how they want God to change the lives of their participants as well how to encourage life-change that lasts a life time. Using the above listed categories, team leaders will be empower and equipped to prepare a team not just logistically, but spiritually and culturally as well.

TRAINING LEADERS - The training for Team Trainers will help those who have been designated by their church to prepare their short-term mission teams for the field. Participants in this training examine critical content for training a team as well an effective delivery model. Participants will learn how to help a newly formed team prepare for cross-cultural ministry experience. In addition to core content of building character, team unity, and culture, participants select, lead and debrief experiential activities that will be useful when working with their own church team.

"Thank you for a great training on Saturday. I loved the practical applications you gave for everything. I heard great feedback from many of the attendees; Gayle and Jim even used the 123/ABC's last night at the team meeting. They are experienced leaders (Gayle has lead high school Mexico trips for about 15 years now) and they both commented that they learned some new things. I think the greatest outcome of the training is that many folks, who have a heart to lead, have received some of the tools they need as well."
