Extraordinary Christian Coaching
What is a Coach?
A sports coach
will make you run more laps than you feel like. A sports coach pushes an
athlete to achieve optimum performance, provides support when the athlete
is exhausted, and teaches the athlete to execute plays that the
competition does not anticipate. To maximize performance, the coach will
make sure the athlete gets in shape before the season begins, knows the
rules of the game and the team playbook, and practices. Someone has said,
"Stretching is necessary to have a successful practice. Not
stretching can be dangerous and unhealthy." A coach makes the athlete
stretch. A sports coach will tell it like it is.
The role of the Business
Coach is to coach business owners to improve their business
through guidance, support and encouragement. They help the owners of small
and medium sized businesses with their sales, marketing, management, team
building and so much more. Just like a sporting coach, your Business Coach
will make you focus on the game.*
A Bible Coach makes
you read the Bible more than you feel like. The Christian Scriptures teach
that life is like a race that we need to train for,
run hard, and win. A Bible Coach pushes you in the race set before you (Hebrews
12:1; 2 Timothy 4:7), helping you apply what you read, building
personal habits, overcoming defects of character that keep you from
winning the race and being awarded an imperishable crown (1
How Does Coaching Work?
A coach tells people
what they do not want to hear and shows them what they do
not want to see so that they can be all that they can be.
-- Vince Lombardi
If you don't want to be a star football player, don't hire
Vince Lombardi to be your coach. If you don't want to be a star
basketball player, don't hire John Wooden to be your coach.
If you want to be an extraordinary Christian, hire a coach who
can help you become an extraordinary Christian.
Then get ready for an extraordinary journey.
Because neither you nor your coach knows the exact route, and
neither of us know exactly what kind of person you'll be when you
The journey could be rough. We're going to follow in the
footsteps of Christ. Along the way you may be put to death by the
sociopathic soldiers of a tyrannical government. But we'll eventually
reach the New Jerusalem, the "City of God."
Your coach is on the same journey. We may split up for a time, and
then be rejoined when our paths cross again. Or we may not see each
other until we reach The City on different paths. But together we can
discern the next step for you, and your coach will inspire and
empower you to take that next step. Then you'll see more.
Your coach empowers you, but will not allow you to become dependent on

What is Coaching?
- The International
Coach Federation defines coaching as
with clients in a thought-provoking and creative
process that inspires them to maximize their
personal and professional potential.

Here are some coaches, randomly selected. Note the
services they provide, the goals they claim to

The quality of a

commitment to excellence, regardless of their
chosen field of endeavor

Typical Coaching Session
A couple will usually contract with a coach on a
monthly basis rather than session to session. The
sessions average three times a month, for between
a half hour to an hour.
The day before each session, the couple will
e-mail to their coach a prep form. This form lets
the coach know what the couple has done since the
last session, what they're struggling with, and
what they need/want to focus on in the next call.
"This brings everybody up to speed" says
McCluskey, "so they know before the session
begins what they're going to be concentrating on.
Most coaching is done over the phone, which makes
it more convenient. Couples don't have to arrange
babysitting, take time off work, drive across
town, sit in a lobby.
"I'm working with a
couple in another state," says McCluskey.
"The husband is at the office and the wife is
at home. They e-mail the prep form the day before.
We all meet for a half-hour over a conference
call, hang up the phone, and everybody goes right
back to what they were doing. It's really
program is profoundly inconvenient. Our program is also
conducted online rather than in a brick-and-mortar
building. But other coaching programs do not require
their clients to read the five most important books in
the history of Western Civilization, or even five
spiritually- and intellectually-demanding books even
though many coaching relationships can last a year or
more. Most coaches do not assume that we are all
profoundly brainwashed by a secular culture where sin is
"mainstream." Most coaches do not begin with
the fact that are victims of educational
OK, You're OK." If you could have one of
America's Founding Fathers as your coach, your coach
would have to put you through extensive re-training to
bring you up to the level of the average teenager in
1776. Today we might call this training "de-programming,"
because the public school system is the brainwashing
corps of a global homicidal religious cult.
If you read some of the definitions of modern "coaching" in the box
on the right, you'll discover that they're very different from Vince Lombardi,
and unlike the kind of coaching we offer in the ExtraordinaryChristianCoaching
This is how Vince Lombardi is reported to have opened his coaching of the
Green Bay Packers. As if a group of tough professionally-paid football veterans didn't know what a football was. Lombardi went back to basics. You are not a champion at the end of
the season by executing miraculous and unconventional plays, or by throwing up
the proverbial prayer, but by blocking, tackling, and running the ball forward
at least 10 yards in 4 plays all the way to the opposing goal.
Our coaching program starts with the basics. We win the race of life with the
Too often we feel like success will come when we follow some guru or join some celebrity
movement. We're told that electing the right candidate for President will bring economic
prosperity and national security. The truth is, Civilization is not built on
gimmicks, celebrities, or fads. It's built on the basics, being practiced by
(This was the thinking behind the creation of "common schools," or public schools: that everyone should know how to read and govern their lives with the Bible -- not just priests and princes.)
The first part of the ExtraordinaryChristianCoaching
program is learning the basics, just like American children learned the basic rules
200 years ago.
You need to know the rules of the game.
- If you're on a professional football team, and the Coach tells you to run
with the ball downfield as fast as you can, and you go the opposite
direction, your team won't get points for a touchdown, the other team
will get points, and you will probably get kicked off the team (if you were
deliberately ignoring the Coach's instructions).
- If you're on a baseball team and you start out running toward third base
instead of first, you will be kicked off the team
- If you're running a race and you're going in the wrong direction, you
won't get a medal (if you ever cross the finish line).
- If you're on a professional soccer team and you insist on using a
baseball, basketball, or tennis ball, you'll probably get kicked off the
So the first question is,
• Which Sport Are You Playing?
• Which Race Are You Running?
• Who Makes the Rules?
• Who Officiates in this Game?
Tennis has a "line judge." America has "The Supreme Judge of the World."
As victims of educational malpractice, most of us do not enter adulthood

of the rules, and we might achieve some success. But if we
carry the ball only 9 yards in 4 plays, then the other team takes the ball and
Most modern "life coaches" believe "the client has all the
answers within." If you're running down the field in the wrong direction,
most modern coaches believe they must be "non-judgmental."
As Ludwig von Mises (arguably the greatest economist in the 20th century) would
put it, the economic coach won't tell you what you ought to do
(morally speaking), but will only inform you of the pragmatic results of your
actions: "If you engage in Policy X, you will experience Result Y."
The modern economist offers no ethical judgment as to the morality or sinfulness
of Policy X.
we believe God has told us that some things are right and other things are
wrong. You have to know the rules to win the game. Your success in life depends
on going in the right direction. The more people who go in the right direction,
the more prosperous society will be.
The Bible says we must study the rules and practice
them every day. Teaching others is a great way to learn these rules. We are
always in training. Our goal is to become like Jesus Christ (Ephesians
4:13). Our goal is to please God by being perfect
We never get a day off. Sorry about that. Every day is training day. Every
day is game day. The goal of training is endurance, then victory,
The goal of this program is to develop a Biblical
Worldview. All the options of life are viewed through this worldview. In
order to develop this worldview, we prescribe a
training course in which the athlete reads the five most important works in
the history of Christian Civilization. First, the athlete learns God's
Commandments by reading the Bible, and then learns how to apply those
commandments to all of life life by studying four works which focus on theology,
economics, government, and the future of human progress, peace, and dominion.
A great coach drills the team on the rules of the game, until they know the
rules by heart. Then the coach pushes the athletes through repetitive drills
until their bodies are in top shape and perform the required steps reflexively,
without hesitation. Habitually. Spontaneously.
program helps you develop a Biblical Worldview, and then gives you the ability
to easily and quickly apply that worldview to the facts, situations,
relationships, opportunities and challenges that life brings you. That's how you
win the race. Every day.
An Example of Secular Coaching
Christians can learn many things from non-Christian coaches. There are also many
ideas and practices which are toxic. Here are the opening paragraphs from an
article in The
New Yorker, April 22, 2002 v78 i9 p114(11) entitled, "The
Better Boss: How Marshall Goldsmith Reforms Executives, by Larissa
Abstract: Goldsmith's career as an executive coach who
trains executives to be respectful of others to help in employee retention and
formation of strategy. His techniques and some case studies are described.
Goldsmith's official job description is "executive coach": he
trains executives to behave decently in the office, by subjecting them to a
brutal regimen. First, he solicits "360° feedback" -- he asks their
colleagues and sometimes their families, too, for comprehensive assessments of
their strengths and defects -- and he confronts them with what everybody really
thinks. Then he makes them apologize and ask for help in getting better. It's a
simple method -- "I don't think anybody's going to say I'm guilty of
excessive subtlety," he says -- but it works. It had better work. If it
doesn't, the client gets his money back.
Goldsmith won't take on a client who doesn't want to change -- someone who,
as he puts it, has not a skill problem but a don't-give-a-shit problem -- but,
short of that, the more obnoxious the better. "My favorite case study was
in the 0.1 percentile for treating people with respect," he says.
"That means that there were over a thousand people in that company and this
person came in dead last. This person would be in an elevator and someone would
come up and say, 'Hey, how's it going?,' and he wouldn't even respond. He was
hardworking and brilliant; he didn't lie, cheat, or steal. He was just a
complete jerk. The case was considered hopeless, but in one year he got up to
53.7 per cent.
"You know how I helped the guy to change? I asked him, 'How do you treat
people at home?' He said, 'Oh, I'm totally different at home.' I said, 'Let's
call your wife and kids.' What did his wife say? 'You're a jerk.' Called the
kids. 'Jerk.' 'Jerk.' So I said, 'Look, I can't help you make money, you're
already making more than God, but do you want to have a funeral that no one
attends? Because that's where this train is headed."
When Goldsmith started executive coaching, in the early eighties, he was a
pioneer. Coaching really came into its own as an industry about five or six
years ago, when employee retention became a serious problem. Prosperous baby
boomers were retiring early, and members of Generation X were looking for
variety and fulfillment rather than security. Human-resources departments,
meanwhile, were calculating the cost of losing an important employee (between
one and two times the employee's annual salary and benefits, according to one
estimate), and had discovered that one of the two main reasons that people left
jobs was that they hated their boss (the other being the general failure of the
company). Clearly, it was foolish to lose talent for no better reason than that
a vice-president appeared to his subordinates to be insufficiently interested in
what they had to say. Moreover, a bad attitude on the part of senior management
was held to be detrimental not only to retaining employees but also to the
formation of strategy. The old-fashioned leader, with his bulldozer personality
and his single-minded certainties, was thought to be too arrogant to lower his
ear to the ground and listen for changes coming. Thus, the executive coach.
Coaching being still in its chaotic, juvenile phase, there are, as yet, no
licensing requirements of any kind. Anyone can call himself an executive coach,
and thousands do. Schools are springing up everywhere: Coach
Universe and Coach U conduct
classes by phone; CoachVille.com
trains coaches for a seventy-nine-dollar lifetime-membership fee. For this
reason, first-to-market coaches like Goldsmith, who already have solid
reputations and have received notices in the business press (he was listed as
one of five top coaches by Forbes,
and in the top ten by the Wall
Street Journal), are flourishing. Goldsmith's current clients include
ChevronTexaco, Motorola, Thomson, and Pitney Bowes. Some executives remain
suspicious of coaching, thinking of it as a reproach or as enforced
psychotherapy, but more often these days the offer of a coach is taken as a
compliment -- a sign, since the service is expensive, that a person is being
groomed for significant promotion.
One of Goldsmith's clients is an executive in a large corporation. He is
high-ranking -- only a step or two from the top. None of Goldsmith's clients are
far from the top -- his services are too expensive to waste on mid-level
managers. (He won't say how much he charges, but it is reported to be in the
high five figures per client per year, which makes him one of the best-paid
coaches in the field.) On a recent visit to the executive's office, Goldsmith
ran into his client in the hallway, where the two of them were spotted by a
little white-haired man wearing a red bow tie.
"Who's getting their head shrunk today?" asked the white-haired man
in a jovial tone. The executive gave him a pained smile.
The executive was in his early forties and wore an open-necked white shirt.
He had the genial, Saturday air of a man with a beer, making a seamless
transition from fraternity to barbecue -- an air that, by all accounts, had
served him well in his work. But, at the same time, there was a tense wariness
about him. The people in marketing who worked under him thought he was terrific,
but his peers were tired of what they felt were his incessant competitive
put-downs, and people in sales felt that he had failed, as Goldsmith primly put
it, to treat them like customers. The executive had to stop being so
territorial, the C.E.O. decided. Goldsmith was called in and signed up for a

George Washington led the American colonists in an effort to abolish a
tyrannical government. The government he called a "tyranny"
had a tax on a pound of tea that was ten times lower than the tax
we pay on a gallon of gas. What he called a "tyranny" was more
representative than our modern "Administrative
State," and "tyrants" in his day would never have
dreamed of using colonial tax revenue to fund
abortions, marry homosexuals,
or remove all copies of the Ten Commandments from public
schools and courthouses.
- For generations, George Washington was the most
revered man in America. His portrait could be seen in every public
building, in every school, and in many bedrooms of America's boys. He
was a hero and an icon.

Biography of Washington
for Washington by his contemporaries
"His integrity was
most pure, his justice the most inflexible I have ever known, no motives
of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to
bias his decision. He was indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a
good, and a great man." -- Thomas Jefferson
- How would integrity, courage,
morality, and wisdom transform your life:
- • your marriage
- • your business
- • your children
- • your relationship with God
- Do people with integrity, courage,
morality, and wisdom succeed better than people who are cheats,
wimps, immoral, and foolish?
- Of course they do.
- In general, that's how the universe
works. According to George Washington and America's Founding
Fathers, the universe is governed by the "Invisible
Hand" of "Divine Providence." Job
was an exception. At least at
first. And you may live (temporarily) under a tyrannical
government that punishes extraordinary people and rewards cheats,
wimps, immoral, and foolish people instead. But in the long run, you
are better off being extraordinary. Your country is
better off if you resist tyranny and become extraordinary.

Because he led troops into battle to fight taxes like a three-pence

gas that's TEN TIMES HIGHER. The total tax
burden in the colonies was less than 2% of colonial income, but today's
government takes over half of everything you earn.
Like those who signed the Declaration of Independence, George Washington
was among those who risked
"our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor," but today's
government makes it illegal for teachers in public schools to
teach students that the

If you're an athlete and you
want to win a race, you get yourself a coach. Your coach will encourage
you, nag you, maybe yell at you, in order to drag out your maximum
performance so you can win the race and take home the Gold Medal.
George Washington said if you want to be a
great human being, you need to be a great American and -- more important
-- a great Christian. The Christian Scriptures teach that life
is like a race that we need to train for, run hard, and win.
So if you want to follow George
Washington's advice, you need a coach.
Wouldn't it be great to have George
Washington as your coach! He coached the Continental Army to victory over
the mighty British Empire. He coached the Constitutional Convention to
agreement on a new Constitution. And after he served as America's first
President, he became known as "the Father of his Country."

two things you need to become an extraordinary American, an Extraordinary
Christian, and an extraordinary human being. You need to learn the basic

George Washington's Advice
On May 2, 1778, when the Continental Army
had emerged from its infamous winter at Valley Forge, Commander-in-Chief
George Washington issued the following:
The commander-in-chief directs that
divine service be performed every Sunday at eleven o'clock in those
brigades [in] which there are chaplains; those which have none [are] to
attend the places of worship nearest to them. It is expected that
officers of all ranks will by their attendance set an example to their
men. While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and
soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher
duties of religion. To the distinguished character of patriot, it
should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.
The signal instances of providential
goodness which we have experienced, and which have now almost
crowned our labors with complete success, demand from us in a peculiar
manner the warmest returns of gratitude and piety to the Supreme Author
of all good.—

JC Fitzpatrick, ed., Wash. DC: US Gov't Printing Office, 1932, Vol.
XI:342-343, General Orders of 5/2/1778
On May 12, 1779, in a speech to the Delaware
Indian Chiefs, Washington coached them:
You do well to wish to learn our arts and
ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.
These will make you a greater and happier people than you are. Congress
will do every thing they can to assist you in this wise intention.
The Writings of George Washington,
JC Fitzpatrick, ed., Wash. DC: US Gov't Printing Office, 1932, Vol 15,
George Washington has been criticized for owning slaves -- even though
he inherited them, and even though it was illegal for him to free
them (when Virginia tried passing laws against slavery, the
King of Britain overruled them). But being a slave in a Christian
nation is better than being "free" in an atheistic nation.
In the Soviet Union, workers on the collective farms were allowed a
small plot of land to grow what they wanted, and sell for whatever they
could get. These small plots of capitalism saved the entire nation from
starvation. "Two percent of privately
owned Soviet farmland was producing fully 30 percent of the country’s
Today's Secular America is like the atheistic Soviet Union. The
government claims ownership of more
than 2/3 of everything you earn. The majority of industry is
regulated by the State. Yet the small amount of freedom left to us
provides us with iPods, big-screen TV, microwaves, and info-tainment. We
think we are wealthy. But we are not free.
In America, the percentage of privately-owned property -- truly and
securely owned -- is not much different from the percentage in the
Soviet Union. George
Washington's ideal was for every American to live peacefully under
his own "Vine & Fig Tree." This was the original
"American Dream." Today's "American Dream" is a fixed-rate
mortgage. The bank actually owns your home. This is a form of
slavery, as anyone who signed the Constitution would tell you. Even if
you pay off your mortgage, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the
government can take your home and give it to someone else who might
use your property differently and pay more taxes to the government than

- The human beings that settled the New World
- were the same species of humans that remained in Europe.
- But America became extraordinary,
while Europe stagnated under monarchy and socialism.
- The difference was ideas.
- Ideas have consequences.
These same ideas can have consequences in your life.
In 1776, America had become the pinnacle of Christian Civilization, also
called "Western Civilization." Personally, Americans were
hard-working and charitable. Politically, Americans perceived that the
initiation of force by government was inconsistent with Christianity.
America was a land of "Liberty
Under God," a "City
upon a Hill," a light to the world.
The Internet gives an adult living in 2012 the capability of
re-creating a colonial education in just one year. If you can muster the
moral courage to give up one hour of the mainstream media and replace it
with the ExtraordinaryChristianCoaching

and influence your culture -- from your neighborhood to our globe.
You Need to Read the Five Most Important
Works in the History of America and Western Civilization
There are three main components of the Extraordinary
Program. The first is reading the five most important works in the history
of America and Western Civilization. Most Americans in 1776 knew these
ideas backwards and forwards, and certainly a lot better than most
Americans today. You may be in the top 1% of Americans in terms of knowing
these key ideas, and yet be in the bottom 50% of Americans in 1776.
The first book, of course -- the most
significant book in the history of America and Western Civilization -- is
the Bible. During the next 365 days, you will read the Bible from cover to
cover in a way you never have before. In 1837, the Supreme Court of
Delaware said this:
Long before Lord Hale declared that
Christianity was a part of the laws of England, the Court of Kings
Bench, 34 Eliz. in Ratcliff's case, 3 Coke Rep. 40, b. had gone so far
as to declare that "in almost all cases, the common law was
grounded on the law of God, which it was said was causa causans,"
and the court cited the 27th chapter of Numbers, to show that their
judgment on a common law principle in regard to the law of inheritance,
was founded on God's revelation of that law to Moses.
