Excel Leadership Network focuses on supporting church planters and leaders. We aim to implement Acts Chapter 13:1-3–We spot high-level leaders; set them up for success; send them out; and support them. Our support systems and environments include prayer; funding; discovery (assessment); visioneering; coaching; caring; training; creativity and partnering. We strive for a 100% success rate (currently we are at 100%). in 2018 we signed 33 planters, in 2019 we signed 60. Our team is made up of experienced church planters who care about expanding the kingdom. Our philosophy can be found in the book, “Leading the Other Way” by JD Pearring.
