Our Leadership

The Christ Together Network consists of Pastors and Leaders from across the country, coming together to inspire, connect, resource and support The Church. Born out of prayer, these Pastors and Leaders in this inter-denominational network share a common passion, vision and purpose: communicating and demonstrating the good news of Jesus Christ with every man, woman and child. We have both a Directional Team and a Delivery Team. Our Directional Team serves to provide strategic leadership to the network at a national level. The role of the Delivery Team is to develop a national network of local network leaders who are missionally impacting their geographies, relationally collaborating, encouraging and supporting each other and representing the message and vision to others around the country.
