Strategic Growth for XPs

The Collective an 11 month coaching experience providing you with a highly effective and engaging opportunity for leadership growth and impact. In most of our churches we’ve moved to small groups. We know life change happens best in community. However, in our own leadership development, we attend conferences alone, we read books alone and we lead … alone.

Level 1—Led by Jon Wright

  • Gathering as small groups of XPs from around the country
  • Facing the same challenges, reading the same books
  • Engaging in areas of strategy, staff culture, generosity, next generation leadership and more
  • Meeting virtually twice a month to discus how best to implement new vision in own environments
  • Learning from each others failures and success

Individual Coaching with Relational Connections

While each church and leadership team is unique, we all strive to grow in our ability to lead and serve. Experience teaches us that life change happens best through relationship and accountability.
