Double-Board-Certified School of Christian Coach Education for Strategic Equipping of Influencers

It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ … he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone. (The Message)

Ephesians 1:11

What We Believe
God has a plan for our lives. He made us with certain traits, abilities, and passions so that we may fulfill a specific life purpose. In creating who we are, God also built into us what we are to do. When we discover His intent and fully embrace His plan, we are able to live full, abundant, and purposeful lives — in step with God’s plan.

The Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential

LPCCI is a Board Certified, Coach-Training Provider through The Center for Credentialing & Education!

The Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE) created the Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential as a means to independently verify that applicants have met professional coaching competency standards established by CCE and subject matter experts. These standards reflect the common knowledge, skills and abilities of a professional coach.

The BCC is a mark of quality. It demonstrates to the public that a professional coach has:

* Met educational and training requirements
* Passed a psychometrically sound coach specific exam
* Obtained experience in the field of coaching
* Professional peer references
* Accountability of an enforceable ethics code
* Commitment to continuing education
The achievement of the Board Certified Coach credential solidifies the professional identity of the coach. The BCC credential is attractive to professionals who would like to provide independent third party verification that they have achieved certain coaching competency standards.

Meet our Founder

KatieKatie Brazelton, Ph.D., MDiv, and MA in Education (with CA Lifetime Principal and Secondary Teacher credentials), is the founder of Life Purpose Coaching Centers International®, which trains Christian men and women from all over the world (via online, tele-conferences) to become Professional Certified Life Coaches.

For years prior to her book tour in 2005, Dr. Brazelton served…

…at the purpose driven Saddleback Church (Pastor Rick Warren) as a Licensed Minister, Director of Women’s Bible Studies, and Director of Golden Gate Theological Seminary (for the Saddleback campus).

Katie, who is currently a Board Member for Rockbridge Seminary and bestselling author of the Pathway to Purpose for Women series, has been thrilled to see her eight books and a DVD translated into as many as twelve languages. Her 2007 Zondervan book, Character Makeover: 40 Days with a Life Coach to Create the Best You, and her 2010 Group Publishing book, The Way I’m Wired series for Youth, are still extremely popular, as is her 2013 Tyndale book, One Year Recovery Prayer Devotional: 365 Daily Mediations toward Discovering God’s True Purpose.

Katie in the Media
Katie is represented by Ambassador Speakers Agency. She has been a featured guest for radio and television broadcasts, such as Midday Connection and 100 Huntley StreetShe has been interviewed for publications such as Today’s Christian Woman and Alive! and has been honored to speak at such venues as Focus on the Family and for years at the American Association of Christian Counselor’s World Conferences. In 2005, she began the process of fulfilling her 1995 God-given dream of opening 200 Life Purpose Coaching Centers globally.
How Katie now spends her days
Katie now spends a great many of her days talking with women about their God-given dreams, passions, and purposes. Her calling to help women discover their life purposes led her to Calcutta to talk to Mother Teresa about joy; to Belfast as a guest of Ireland’s Nobel Peace Laureate to discuss inner peace; and to the tiny island of Malta to study St. Paul’s time of shipwreck. She is particularly drawn to “broken,” authentic people who are ready to lead surrendered lives; who have experienced hardship and trials – and have decided to let God use it all for good; and leaders who are willing to obey God in order to become “oaks of righteousness – a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor” (her life verse from Isaiah 61:3).
