The Core Concepts

The Core Concepts are the foundation of App State coaching. If you’re coachee has not gone through them, then this is the right place to start.

There are six Core Concepts so you should be able to get through them all in one semester (for each core concept, there is a leader’s version and a student version). Most people who grew up in church will be familiar with their content, so we suggest having your coachee teach the concepts to you! Maybe model the first one and then have them do the rest.

In order to keep things interesting, we recommend having your coachee choose four other topics from the Resource Bin to intersperse with the Core Concepts. And don’t forget, at least two of your coaching appointments need to revolve around completing a Cru Tools training.
