Title: SHEPHERD COACH Author: Tom Roy Publisher: Tall Pines Pages: 132 Genre: Christian / Nonfiction / Coaching
There are few titles as honored as “Coach.” Players often take on the attitudes and swagger they see in a coach. Coaches are leaders, role models and authority figures all rolled into one. Receiving such a title is one thing… measuring up to the accolade is another. This book will attempt to help us all become better at our honored position of “Christian Coach” by examining our calling, motives, and processes. The workbook will ask questions and give ideas that will help us lead the men and women given to us in a way that models how Jesus would define “winning.” A book for coaches from little league to the major leagues!

SHEPHERD COACH was a pretty good read. As a graduate psychology student who has worked with kids before I found this book to be quite valuable in terms of how to become a better Christian Coach. I personally feel like I have benefited from this book in terms of how I will work with kids in the future!
