Leaders are Learners


Learning and Growing Together

We have designed the Leadership Advance Learning Community to take the biblical principles of Purpose Driven Church and implement effectively in our churches today.

Through our cohorts, workshops and Pastors' Gathering, we are walking and working together to build and lead churches towards a greater commitment to the Great Commandment and Great Commission.

We are also building the Purpose Driven Advance Library by sharing our learnings with each other. It's a learn-and-return ecosystem.


  • Why Senior Pastors, Executive Pastors and Church Planters?

    The work of implementing the Purpose Driven Church Model is doing the hard work of leading change. We begin with Senior Pastors, Executive Pastors and Church Planters, who then invite members of their team to participate in specific trainings that is relevant to that team member.

  • Is there a cost to join?

    Joining the Learning Community is FREE. What we do ask it that you will pay if forward by mentoring other pastors and share your learning to add to the PD LEADERSHIP ADVANCE library.

  • Why is there an enrollment period?

    We have an onboarding pathway that will get you started well. It's highly personalized and relational. In order to keep that experience great, we do not have rolling enrollment. If you missed the enrollment period, you can join the waitlist by emailing - sams@saddleback.com
