Quick summary & fast links:

The Reach Australia Leadership Development Program:


We'll conduct a thorough analysis of your church. This will give you a picture of your current health, as well as identifying pathways for growth into the future.


To build on our initial church health assessment, we'll provide monthly coaching from trained coaches to help you implement change in your own ministry as well as throughout the church.


Over 24-months, you'll attend residential intensives as well as online group training with a cohort of peers, with content delivered from ministry experts. These cohorts will provide you with the skills and tools for growth, as well as peers to learn and share with.
