Leader Groups Executive Pastors

Equip. Connect. Encourage.

Our Leader Group consists of a relational peer network of 12 Executive Pastors who carry monumental responsibility in multiplying the vision of the church. They help give executive leadership to churches with 1,000 or more on a weekend. They lead ministry teams, operations, campus networks or otherwise. And they are focused on their next steps in helping lead forward the increasingly complex organization known as the church. These Pastors all share similar ministry challenges and come together with a desire to learn and develop strong connections to others serving in similar ministry roles.
