Grace Leaders Network

Our leadership network is here to help all church and ministry leaders to be connecting, learning and collaborating together! We want all ministry leaders to connect and bless our network (and receive a blessing themselves!) which includes:

    • full-time, part-time and volunteer leaders
    • men and women
    • local church pastoral staff, deacons, elders and ministry directors/leaders
    • para-church ministry leaders- including campus ministers, youth leaders, children’s ministry leaders, Christian school educators and staff, counseling groups, mission agencies/organizations, etc.

If you are serving the Lord and need a network of like-minded leaders to connect with, learn with and collaborate with, this is your place to network!gln-logo_color

As a cooperating organization of the Grace Churches Network, the purpose of this organization shall be to facilitate a relational learning and collaborating network of leaders for the holistic development of churches in harmony with the Grace Churches Network.

Our Network Gatherings are held in a variety of locations monthly through the school year, typically on the second Tuesday of each month at 10am from September through May. You can sign up for the email list to be invited online here

Our Executive Board is unique in that it highlights unique aspects of our network through its five roles:

Coordinator: Mike Jentes

Equipping Advocate: Mike Sciarra

Missional Advocate: Ed Waken

Shepherding Advocate:  Bob Wriedt

Treasurer: Dale Workman

We have built in advocates for our leaders to encourage them in Equipping, Shepherding and being Missional!
