Freedom Certification Training Program™

Training and equipping Christian Leaders, 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

The Freedom Certification Training Program is a live, hands-on, interactive, and powerful program for leaders, coaches, counselors, and ministers. You will learn how to blend traditional and pure coaching skills with ministry and inner healing tools so you can help hurting people encounter the presence of God and find freedom in Christ.

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

The Freedom Certification Training Program™ is a 12-month Biblical and Spirit-filled program that will equip leaders to minister and coach their clients to overcome life obstacles and find freedom in Christ.

We are proud to offer this unique training, as there isn’t another program out there that teaches these tools and equips leaders in this blended model.

We found that inner healing is powerful, but people often don’t know how to encounter God’s presence independently, so they become dependent on a minister.

Coaching is effective, but without encounters with God, they risk going back to old patterns of bondage because they don’t have accountability.

With the guidance of a leader as their coach, clients can experience a transformative journey towards lasting freedom!

Let us teach you how to lead people with the proprietary tools of the Freedom Coach Model™ and The Freedom Framework™!

We will explore the foundations of coaching and ICF Core Competencies in an inner healing model. You’ll solidify your understanding of the biblical foundations for Christian coaching and your authority as a child of God. You will apply those skills to how you serve clients, using professional listening skills and asking powerful questions. 


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


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


Each client struggles with different strongholds. Using the Freedom Coach Model™, you can create a custom plan for your clients. You’ll learn 16 tools to help clients hear God’s voice and encounter His presence. You’ll tackle subjects like fear, rejection, shame, anger, family patterns, unforgiveness, sin, family of origin wounds, and more. This is the heart of the program, so we will spend about nine months preparing you for any challenge a client may face. You’ll have Biblical strategies to help them break agreements, repent, renounce, and receive God’s grace.

“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 with all the tools you need to see transformation in your client’s 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 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 leaders to use their gifts and skills to empower their clients to see measurable results. All in partnership with the Lord.

What is the process of applying?

Once you fill out the application and submit your references, we will review it and send you an email with the next steps within 10 days. If you’re application is accepted, you’ll meet with Jill on Zoom so you can ask additional questions and we can make sure this program is a good fit. If all goes well, you will join our next cohort! 

Will I receive a certification at the end of the 12 months?

If you successfully pass all the requirements you will receive a certificate of graduation. You will receive an application to become a “Certified Freedom Practitioner,” “Certified Associate Freedom Coach,” or  “Certified Freedom Minister.”  Most requirements will be met by completing the training, but you will need to gain enough coaching and ministry hours before applying for certification. 


Are there prerequisites?

There are three paths to certification:

  1. ICF Certified Coaches who have completed Levels 1, 2, or 3 have met the prerequisites.
  2. Non-ICF Coaches (which includes most leaders, 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. You most likely will be on the Practitioner path. 
  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 be eligible to receive the certification “Freedom Minister.” You may be required to go through the “Mentor Coaching Program” with Jill Monaco in addition to the Freedom Certification Training Program.


Do I get ICF credit hours?

This program is applying to ICF for 40 hours of ICF CCEs. They require we do a full year before we apply. If accepted, it will be retroactive. You will receive documentation to turn into ICF for the “portfolio path.” Since we are not yet approved by ICF, there are not guarantees for how they may evaluate our program or change their requirements. 

Do I need to sign an Agreement?

Yes, for those accepted into the program, you will be able to review and sign the Terms and Conditions and License Agreement.

Can I cancel or receive a refund after joining?

No, due to the fact that you receive the program materials from the start the program is non-refundable. Because we will turn people away your spot is secured for you so payment plans will continue whether you chose to continue with the program or not. Please prayerfully consider your decision to join us!

Is there a Facebook Group?

We will decide if there is a Facebook Group after knowing who the participants will be.  However, we do have a community group on our Learning Management Software and will have ways to stay connected if you do not have social media.  We will use this for building relationship, announcements, questions, and accountability.

How interactive are the trainings?

We aim for 60% of the training to be interactive. You’ll have breakout groups, practice activities, and cohort level assignments that are all a part of this group training experience. 

What happens if I miss a training?

You can miss up to 4 in person training sessions. Since each training is built upon the previous one, you’ll need to watch the replay before the next training and send us an email about what you learned.

How long will I have access to the training sessions?

You will have access to the training sessions for the duration of the program.

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

Once certified in the Freedom Coach Model, you may use the title “FCM Coach” or “Certified Associate Freedom Coach” or “Certified Freedom Minister” in your branding and marketing but not “Freedom Coaching®” as it is trademarked by Jill Monaco Ministries. 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.

Will I need to purchase other materials?

Yes, you will have a reading list and you are responsible for acquiring those books.

Who will see my assignments?

Jill Monaco will be the only one who evaluates your assignments unless otherwise noted ahead of time. 

Will I receive referrals?

Those who have completed the program and received certification are eligible to apply for our referral and partnership program. Participants are not guaranteed to be a part of the partnership program by completing the certification.

If you are accepted into our partnership program, you will be listed on our website and eligible for referrals.

** Those in our referral program are required to participate in continued education through Jill Monaco Ministries, agree to our Terms and Conditions, live out our Statement of Faith, and uphold our code of conduct as outlined in the Agreements.

Do I need to be a Christian to apply?

This content is based on Biblical truths, prayer, and the power of the Holy Spirit. You will not get value from this program if you are not a Christian. We also require our participants to agree to our Statement of Faith.

Do you offer scholarships?

We do not offer any discounts or scholarships at this time. We hope this program will attract major donors who want to sponsor a coach in the future. You are more than welcome to find a sponsor – if they donate any amount to Jill Monaco Ministries on your behalf, 100% of that amount will be taken off your tuition and they will receive a tax deductible letter. You may want to fundraise through another means like GoFundMe, or asking your church or the company you work for.
