Planting Networks

We believe we are #bettertogether! A church planter or a church, should NEVER plant alone! Networking together, we can effectively face the challenges, the struggles, the ups and downs. We need interaction, input and feedback to plant effectively

Planting Networks have contributed immensely to the success of Converge's church planting movement. Every church planting pastor is connected with other pastors and planters through LEAD Teams, or Church Planting Networks. These earning environments provide a wealth of experience and support for every church planting pastor.

In addition, we connect planting pastor spouses together for ongoing encouragement and support. These have proven to be a huge resource for spouses who, along with their spouses, are engaged in front line ministry, extending and advancing the work of Jesus.

LEAD Teams

A LEAD Team is a gathering of relationally and missionally committed leaders from a geographical region or cultural affinity group.  Teams meet together regularly following the L.E.A.D. pathway:  Learning together, Encouraging one another, Achieving and Dreaming together on Mission.  

LEAD Teams provide a great opportunity for pastors and church planters to become a band of brothers; to walk together in the ministry journey and partner in mission. The 7 regional or cultural LEAD Teams meet 5-6 times each year across Converge PacWest for the purposes of expanding the Kingdom through starting new churches and strengthening existing churches and their leaders.  Find out more about the specific LEAD Teams here.
