Leadership Development

Converge Rocky Mountain offers several tracks for professional and lay leader training.

  • Elder/Deacon Training

    A variety of materials: They Smell Like Sheep; Biblical Eldership and custom training, are available to help your church leaders deepen their faith and grow in maturity, wisdom and the ability to lead effectively.

  • Training Center Churches

    Churches showing excellence in a specific area of ministry (multi-site, rural ministry, discipleship, etc.) will be identified to offer training for interns, pastors and planters.

LEAD Networks

Spirit-empowered LEAD Networks are the primary means through which Converge Rocky Mountain congregations seek to transform lives and communities in the Rocky Mountain West.

Our effectiveness as a movement will rise and fall on the effectiveness of our LEAD networks. These networks enable congregations to experience the power of church-to-church community just as it was first modeled in the book of Acts.  Through LEAD networks, local congregations will be better equipped to pursue God’s unique calling for their congregation.  By partnering with other congregations in their region, churches will be able to accomplish even greater ministry objectives for the glory of God. Accomplishing together what would be impossible to accomplish alone.

LEAD networks connect Senior/Lead pastors on a regular basis.  The networks also provide opportunity for ministry leaders in key areas, (Worship, Prayer, Children, Youth, Women, Senior Adults, and Global Engagement), to learn and grow together. Through the networks an “empowered, collaborative leadership culture” is nurtured where all ministry leaders can be contributors of ideas, expertise and resources for an overall Kingdom benefit.

Although there will be a tremendous amount of creative freedom on “how” LEAD networks reach their specific region for Christ, all networks will be unified in our passion for Christ, our desire to see lives and communities transformed in the Rocky Mountain West and our commitment to the mission/values of Converge Rocky Mountain.


Alongside Ministries' passion is to help pastors’ wives live lives of courage and abandon, seizing the opportunities that are unique to this God-given role by:

Empowering them to understand their unique calling tied not just to their position, but to their personality and their gifting.

Developing them as leaders who lead from hearts of wisdom, integrity, humility and authenticity.

Strengthening them by giving them tools to take the challenges of being a pastor’s wife and a ministry family and turn them into opportunities for God to move in broken people and handle the challenges of being a ministry family with wisdom, grace, and faith in Him who uses all things for His glory.

Attacking the isolation that characterizes most lives of pastors’ wives by creating networks that are safe, meet regularly via face-to-face or online platforms, and encourage authenticity about the real issues we face.

Can you imagine hundreds, even thousands, of women in the Rocky Mountain region who are fulfilling the purpose God has for them? Can you imagine the impact that would have on the world?

We are seeking to provide you with quality resources, training opportunities, words of encouragement, and ways to network with one other.

In the corner of my neighborhood coffee shop, I sit at a small round table hidden behind a display of coffee cups and bags of dark roast. Writing here instead of at home at my desk is a new coping rhythm during an unwanted, lengthy season of transition for my family. We were supposed to move...

Trusting God when the answers don't come:

Regardless of my circumstances, his care will remain the same. by Jenilee Rebarber

I was on my knees one night right before going to bed. Not knowing what to say, I considered my options. I thought perhaps I could seek comfort in worship, but I didn’t really have the serenity at the moment. Neither had I the strength to pray intensely. The reason I couldn’t do that was...
