The Heartbeat of 1,000 Young Leaders

The Vision

We believe PLI, along with 1,000 Young Leaders, is being called by God to significantly accelerate a movement of the Gospel by training a global family of 30,000 leaders and churches for the purpose of multiplying a diverse set of evangelistic communities.

The Mission

1,000 Young Leaders empowers emerging Christian adults to uniquely lead missional, multiplying communities where anyone can encounter Jesus.

Who is 1,000 Young Leaders for?

Gen Y (millennials) & Gen Z Christians who…
  • are between the ages of 21-36
  • desire to grow in their faith alongside a like-minded community
  • are seeking clarity and purpose
  • are ready for leadership development
  • everyday vocational leaders (example: teachers, business owners, baristas, entrepreneurs, stay-at-home parents, etc.)

The Roadmap

  • lead with discipleship tools and strategies for multiplication
  • start + lead community where anyone can encounter Jesus
  • process + respond to God’s movement through weekly coaching

Over the course of 1,000 Young Leaders you will receive leadership training that empowers you to…

replicate how Jesus engaged in relationships
see scripture through the lens of God’s missionary heart
disciple others within your context
invest in the kingdom of God wherever you live, work, and play

Your Commitment for the next 10 months will include

  • 15-20 minutes of weekly on-demand online teaching
  • 75 minutes of live zoom video coaching per week (scheduled breaks and holidays)
  • Time spent integrating the leadership coaching and training within your context
  • $100 registration fee per person
  • $50 a month per person

Our Commitment to you

  • Trained coaches with expertise and experience
  • Prayer and regular encouragement
  • Impactful teaching and tools
  • Lifetime access to 1,000 Young Leaders platform + community
  • Annual Gathering in Nashville, TN with fellow participants

Our Heart

When young leaders are equipped and called to lead, the Gospel is extended into the places only they can reach. We want young adult leaders to dream, respond, and discern God’s mission as they participate in the renewal of their lives, neighborhoods, cities, and beyond.

Throughout history, we have seen the church experience massive cultural shifts that have led to a shrinking church. We believe generations like millennials and Gen Z will pave new territory for the Church by reproducing communities where anyone can experience Jesus.
