LEAD Teams

Fresno LEAD Team 2017A LEAD Team is a gathering of relationally and missionally committed leaders from a geographical region or affinity group. (The acronym LEAD stands for Learning, Encouraging, Achieving, and Dreaming - four key elements of the meetings.) Teams meet together regularly to build meaningful relationships, focus on spiritual growth, and work together to see mission accomplished through multiplying (planting) new churches, and nurturing church health.  

While church planting is a strong emphasis of each LEAD Team, church health is equally important. Participating pastors/leaders challenge each other, learn together, and resource one another in a caring environment to stimulate the mobilization, health, and impact of each church involved in the team.
