Effective for new coaches in the August 2021 class and upon renewal of existing coaches. The pricing structure shift is an effort to better articulate the purpose of coach certification. The purpose is about equipping leaders to better lead their churches with a missional focus and release more people for ministry. SAS Coach Certification is about having coaches who want to be engaged in the process, committed to on-going learning, believe in the SAS process, and will intentionally place the tools in the hands of the leaders involved in SAS. There are too many people out there who claim to know SAS that have no clue what they are doing and are coaching/consulting with churches leading them astray. The SAS Coach Certification is intended to create a process that keeps the integrity, quality, and commitment of SAS coaches’ skills, resources, and practices current and continuously updated.
