Learn, Encourage, Achieve and Dream Together



What is a LEAD team?

People are lonelier today than ever.  Research shows that loneliness can be more deadly than smoking 15 cigarettes a day! And 70% of pastors do not have somone they consider a close friend.  LEAD Teams are front lines for pastors and church leaders to know each other and partner together in ministry.  These groups meet regularly throughout the Converge MidAtlantic region.  Pastors share best practices and pray for each other.  They also collaborate to start and strengthen churches, develop leaders, and engage the world with the Gospel.

Being a deep part of Converge MIdAtlantic has enriched my life and ministry in significant ways. My belief is not only that we are better together, but that we truly need each other.
