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!)

  • We include the following ministry leaders:
    • 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!

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

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 and stay tuned to the website for the upcoming schedule of events!

Our Leadership

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

We have built in advocates for our leaders to encourage them in Equipping, Shepherding and being Missional! For more info and organization of the network you can see our Grace Leaders Network Charter 2016 [PDF]
