The Leading Resource

For fifteen years, XPastor has been the leading resource for Executive Pastors to access best practices in church operations, compensation, compliance, strategy and leadership.

We consistently deliver insights and information designed to help you lead your church and ministry team with excellence in an ever-changing, complex environment.

We are excited to share with you a new opportunity for your personal growth and leadership development.

The Collective

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.

The Collective is a community-based leadership development cohort

  • 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!

The Collective members receive two hours of one-on-one coaching each month

  • Go deeper into your specific areas
  • Explore your unique challenges
  • Grow in your personal ministry development.
