Leadership Communities 

Leadership Communities (formerly called Pastor Mentor Groups) have been created to help pastors lead well by providing a place that is both highly relational and safe; a place where pastors can learn and grow in peer community.

While all of the groups are organized around the three C’s: character, content and competency, each group tailors its meeting to most effectively meet the needs of the pastors involved. Seasoned pastors with a Kingdom heart serve as the leaders of each community.

  • Character – the people we need to become
  • Content – the paradigms we need to understand
  • Competencies – the skills we need to master

A Hub designates a geographical area outside of the greater Los Angeles area with Transformation Ministries Churches. We want pastors in our Hubs to experience the same relational support and quality resources available to all TM pastors. With this in mind, every Hub Director facilitates a Leadership Community, and connects with pastors in his Hub in other ways.
