Just like a football coach can encourage and help the team throughout the week, the EDGE Coach meets with student leaders after meetings, and on a weekly basis to help them plan their club for that week. Legally, coaches are not allowed to do any leading during the actual EDGE Club, much like a football can’t play the game for his team. But coaches are the adult volunteers who help student leaders form the EDGE Club, pray for the school, and strategize to reach the campus.
Coaches can be anyone affiliated with a local church! EDGE is in need of people with a heart to not only serve, but connect students into a local body of believers as well. Oftentimes, coaches are youth pastors who want to reach a school near their church, and who have students who attend that school. Other times, coaches are parents of students who want to help their kids reach their peers, and other times, coaches are simply volunteers from the local church who want to see students saved and discipled.
