TeenStreet 2018 - Coach: Germany

A Coach at TeenStreet leads a small group with a maximum of 6 teenagers of the same gender from the same country. Coaches are responsible for leading the small group times, keeping the teens accountable, spending personal time with each teen and being an adult friend.

Coaches play a vital role at TeenStreet and have the closest contact with the teenagers. A coach laughs and cries with the teens, prays with them and helps them to develop their friendship with Jesus. Because the coach has a real relationship with Jesus and reflects Him daily in his/her world, the teens will see this and follow the example.

Teenagers are searching for what is real and what works in their lives. They are moving from childhood to adulthood. Some teens may have already had a friendship with Jesus for many years and others have just started their friendship with Jesus. Some teens are not yet following Jesus. Teens need the coach to be an adult friend who sets an example, while also providing care, security and leadership (including discipline).

A coach will have many opportunities to show and share what Jesus has done in his/her life. This can be life changing for the teens. A coach keeps his/her eyes and heart open and lets God guide him/her. The coach is sensitive to what God is doing.
