Our Vision

To make an impact on secular Washington with the message of Jesus Christ

Our Mission

To inspire group members to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ

The vision of McLean Bible Church is to make an impact on secular Washington with the message of Jesus Christ. To that end, we believe that the church’s role is to equip those who call us their church home to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ—to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and connect in Biblical community so that they may be encouraged and strengthened to serve in their God-given ministry and share the Gospel Message with those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

Impacting secular Washington with the message of Jesus Christ is at the heart of McLean Bible Church’s purpose, and it permeates our teaching, our structure, and our culture. This vision is also at the heart of the mission of Small Groups—to inspire group members to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Small group coaches are the critical component of the implementation of our vision and mission across Small Groups and the critical link between senior coaches or staff and small group leaders.

The Biblical Basis for Coaching

At that time I said to you, “You are too heavy a burden for me to carry alone. The Lord your God has increased your numbers so that today you are as many as the stars in the sky. May the Lord, the God of your fathers, increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised! But how can I bear your problems and your burdens and your disputes all by myself?”
-Deuteronomy 1:9-12

Moses Model
The Moses Model

“Choose some wise, understanding and respected men from each of your tribes, and I will set them over you.” You answered me, “What you propose to do is good.” So I took the leading men of your tribes, wise and respected men, and appointed them to have authority over you—as commanders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens and as tribal officials.
- Deuteronomy 1:13-15
