Freedom Certification

Training and equipping Christian Coaches, Counselors, and Ministers how to blend inner healing tools with coaching skills.


And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. – Luke 10:2

Get certified in The Freedom Coach Model® and have a proven system to help your clients get lifelong transformation.

The Freedom Certification is a 12-month program that will equip you to coach your clients to overcome obstacles in their lives and find freedom in Christ.

This program has been in our hearts and prayers for a decade and we are thrilled to launch the first cohort as a beta program in January of 2024.

We created this training because there isn't another program out there that teaches these tools and equips Christian Coaches in this model.

We found that inner healing is powerful, but people often don't know how to encounter God's presence on their own so they become dependent on a minister. Coaching is effective but without God encounters they go back to old patterns of bondage. But when a client has the help of a coach to meet with God as their coach … they find lasting freedom!

Let us teach you how to coach with the Freedom Coach Model® and The Freedom Framework™!

“The mighty Spirit of Lord Yahweh is wrapped around me because Yahweh has anointed me as a messenger to preach good news to the poor. He sent me to heal the wounds of the brokenhearted, to tell captives, “You are free,”and to tell prisoners, “Be free from your darkness.” Isaiah 61:1 TPT

What Makes The Freedom Certification Different?


If you long to have a model that provides you all the tools you need to see transformation in your clients lives, then this program is for you.

We want to see people have a heart transformation fueled by the power of God not just striving to meet goals with behavior modification and “manifesting results.”

At Jill Monaco Ministries, we understand how people feel powerless to overcome their emotional, spiritual, and psychological battles. They are looking for someone like you to help them. Jill struggled for years to find the breakthrough promised by God in his Word. As she pursued God's presence, He showed her the way to inner healing, joy, and freedom.

The Freedom Certification Training Program equips coaches to use their gifts and skills in a way that empowers their clients to see measurable results. All in partnership with the Lord.

We will explore the foundations of coaching and ICF Core Competencies in an inner healing model. You'll learn the Emotionally Healthy Coach Formula and listening prayer. You'll solidify your understanding for the biblical foundation for identity in Christ, the promises for believers, and authority as a child of God and apply those to how you serve clients using professional listening skills and asking powerful questions.


People are hurting and are ready to let go of their past pain and embrace their purpose. As a Freedom Coach or Freedom Minister you will learn the three parts of the Freedom Framework and learn to use them as a foundation in all your sessions. You'll learn to identify the key phrases people say that are keeping them in bondage and have the confidence that you can help them rewrite their old story and find the glory of God in it.  


You will be trained on how to help people align their thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and actions with the heart of God. Helping clients learn to no longer use discipline or shame to motivate themselves into good habits, they will learn how to activate the power of God in their lives. Clients will find a deepening relationship with the Lord, the power of vulnerability, and restored personal relationships.  


Each client struggles with different strongholds. You can create a custom plan for your clients using the Freedom Coach Model. You'll learn 16 different tools to help clients overcome fear, rejection, shame, jealousy, anger, family patterns, unforgiveness, and more. This is the heart of the program so we will spend about 4 months preparing you for any challenge a client may have.

Once you successfully complete and pass the training, you will receive an application to become a “Certified Associate Freedom Coach” or a “Certified Freedom Minister.”  Most requirements will be met by completing the training but you will need to gain enough coaching and ministry hours first. 


Are there prerequisites?

There are three paths to certification:

  1. ICF Certified Coaches who have completed Level 1, 2, or 3 have met the prerequisites.
  2. Non ICF Coaches (which includes counselors, pastors, and inner healing ministers) If you have a counseling license, ministry training, or have your coach certification from an organization that is not ICF certified, you may be required to go through “Mentor Coaching Program” with Jill Monaco in addition to the Freedom Certification Training Program. We can discuss this on a Zoom call after your application is submitted.
  3. Ministers: If your goal is to learn the tools and aren't concerned about having the title of “coach”, you can go through the program and earn the credential of “Freedom Minister.”

If I am certified, how can I use the resources and certification name?

The Agreement outlines how you can market your new certification. 

You are not released to train others how to use the Freedom Coach Model or the Freedom Framework. For more details on how you can use the FCM tools please refer to the Certification Agreement once accepted into the program.
