“With our new on-demand format, prospective coaches can now go through the training anywhere, anytime, and at their own pace,” the Greens explained. “We are extremely confident that we have produced a quality certificate program that includes video lessons, rigorous exercises, and direct access to online instructors; and that it will be just as impactful as if though our students were walking through it in a live setting.”

As the founders of the STEP Forward Life Institute™ and affiliate members of iChange Nations™, the Greens partnered with United Graduate College and Seminary International to offer this accelerated and ministry-accredited life coach certificate program for people who have a simple desire to help others. Their collective vision was to offer servant-leaders working in under-served communities, high-quality tools that empower and equip them to be more effective in their humanitarian efforts.
“We have been blessed to provide life coach training for organizations and individuals for over five years,” said the master life coaches. “Once we got to the point where our sessions were selling out, we started looking toward a day when we could offer the course in an on-demand video format, as well as in-person or via live video conferencing through our coaching and consulting business, C and C Connections, LLC. Our business facilitated and proivided the venue for all of the session recordings.”
With the successful graduation of candidates in November of 2022, they will have launched over 100 CARE-Ready Life Coaches who are disbursed and embedded in nearly 40 organizations, businesses, agencies or ministries across ten states including: California, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
As the world's leading producers of CARE-Ready Life Coaching®, Chris and Carol Green teach and train community, government and education leaders, human service organizers, business visionaries, and neighborhood dreamers how to be much more effective by embracing the principles of CARE (Compassionate Accountability with Respect and Empathy) in their professional and personal lives.
Many coaching, mentoring, community outreach programs and ministries employ what is known as a "deficit model" of working with people. That's an attempt to 'fix' broken people through a set of pre-determined, cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all steps and treatments to address their issues. The deficit-based model is what many well-meaning people-helpers use, but it rarely works long-term, leaving them wondering why people fail to break the cycles of addiction, mental health challenges, poverty and recidivism.
However, CARE-Ready Life Coaching® mirrors the principles found in the proven, Best Practice strategies of Strength-based, Solution-focused models that are embedded in the Biblical principles of discipleship in the Kingdom of God. CARE-Ready life coaches are trained to connect with people in order to build a relationship/ partnership that encourages and empowers; thus allowing the client to discover true solutions and answers for their lives.
