This designation in the Visual Faith® Ministry Community denotes a Coach who is a “practitioner” of visual faith practices and serves in the capacity of coach. A coach is someone who is available to serve by “walking with others” to learn about visual faith practices- in a discipling relationship and may also be invited to share in an event or teaching situation. This learning cohort has been invited to serve in the capacity as a “Digital Missioner” in a covenant group - to share a glimpse of life as a follower of Jesus. A Digital Missioner engages, encourages, and invites others with their Kingdom vision, Kingdom heart, and Kingdom story. They bring hope and the light of Christ to the world of online presence. (All Digital Missioners also meet the designation of VFM Coach.)
This designation in the Visual Faith® Community confirms an invitation to be a part of a learning cohort that seeks to explore and experiment with the ways that visual faith practices are a discipling tool used by the Holy Spirit. They may have different areas of expertise or niches, but they are “practitioners” with a story of transformation. They may serve in multiple areas by sharing their skills with personal online zooms, lead in-person events, or as part of VFM teaching events online and in-person. They have been invited to be a part of this cohort because of their willing heart and “teachable spirit” as they follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.

This designation in the Visual Faith® Community confirms an invitation to be a part of a learning cohort that seeks to explore and experiment with the ways that visual faith practices are a discipling tool used by the Holy Spirit. They highly value the primary learning space for faith education as “the home”, and may also serve children in a school or church setting. Family Life coaches have been invited to serve in this capacity as apprentices because of the understanding of “extra grace” when meeting the demands of children living at home. Each coach may have different areas of expertise or niches, but they are “practitioners” with a story of transformation. Family Life Coaches may have limited time to share their skills online or in person. This cohort designation also endorses these individuals because of their willing heart and “teachable spirit” as they follow the lead of the Holy Spirit.
