The problem this project addressed was the need for a biblically based parent-teen leadership development coaching model. The researcher reviewed relevant biblical and contemporary literature on childrearing, leadership development and coaching. She conducted a qualitative study wherein she surveyed fifty Christian parents and gathered data during interview/coaching sessions with twelve of the fifty to determine the need and essentials for such a model. Grounded in her analysis of the data collected in these coaching/interview sessions, the researcher adapted Walling's FL model and designed additional components to create the final model.
