To raise up missional leaders to carry the Gospel of Jesus
and plant the seeds of God’s Kingdom across our communities both near and far.


Learning Communities

A Learning Community is a vibrant community of pastors, spouses and ministry leaders who learn together and create
deeper connections of accountability, trust and encouragement. Through ongoing coaching and
investing, each participant learns how to have wider influence for the sake of the Gospel in their own unique context.


Teams of pastors, spouses, and ministry leaders are led and coached to infuse a reproducible discipling culture in their church for the purpose of intentionally launching and multiplying new communities of believers.
