The Local Center is the core strategy to rally pastors and churches in order to support, encourage, and coach one another to make new disciples in their cities. A Local Center is a gathering of local pastors from all denominations and networks. They meet monthly to encourage, challenge, network and coach pastors on how to become better disciple-making churches in their own context. They are open to all sizes, types, and models of churches. They care about helping pastors/leaders make new disciples in their ministries.

Select to see Local Centers for each state, or scroll down the page for block listings.

The Great Commission

"Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
~Matthew 28:18-20
