Healthy churches are led by healthy leaders. Through assessment, coaching and covering, strategic planning and supportive networks, we can help you maximize your God-given potential to fulfill your mission.
Don't face your calling as a pastor alone
Leading a congregation of staff and volunteers to accomplish the eternal purposes of God is a challenging endeavor. Along with being a powerful communicator and counselor, pastors are also often expected to be experts in the fields of finance, office
administration, grounds maintenance, volunteer disbursement and child care coordination. It is not a calling to be taken lightly. It is also not a calling to be faced alone.
We understand the unique needs of pastors and desires to join with them on their ministry journey. Outside support is beneficial in assuring the ongoing health of a pastor in his ministry, family life and personal walk
with God. Converge pastors receive the support they need to help them fulfill their calling and make a greater Kingdom impact.
Converge pastors receive:
- Ministry assessment
- Leadership development
- Ministry Career Opportunities
- Connection to other pastors, districts and national office
Pastor, how often do you ask yourself, “How am I doing?” We can help you answer this essential question and provide you support through the challenges of leading a church. Maybe you’ve reached a ministry milestone, are considering activities for a sabbatical or simply feel burned out. We’ll give you the tracks to run on to make the most of your ministry.
Every leader is a coach and every leader needs a coach. Coaching flows from the relationships that God has established for us, and helps develop healthy rhythms in our lives and helps us succeed by providing spiritual guidance, emotional support and prayer, accountability and training and skill development. There is someone who has experience you can lean on, and likewise, someone who needs your experience to help them navigate their path.
An ADVANCE Team is a gathering of relationally and missionally committed leaders from a geographical region or affinity group. 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 ADVANCE 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.

When we started Valley Brook it was important to me to be part of a movement of churches where I would build relationships with like-minded leaders. We have experienced the reality that we are better together as we've partnered with Converge Northeast leaders and Congregations to grow the kingdom of God.
