An Exclusive, Private Network for Pastors who Expect Great Things From God
and are Willing to Attempt Great Things for God!

With Nelson Searcy

The Network for Pastors Who Are NO Longer Content with Average!

Membership will help you achieve personal growth, ministry-life balance and accomplish great things for God's Kingdom.

Dear Pastor,

The Renegade Pastors Network is a dream that I've harbored since I first started resourcing and coaching pastors in 2004. This network is the dream I had when I wrote my first book, offered my first seminar online and graduated my first coaching alumni. Now, with over 1000 coaching alumni, 100+ church growth resources and 150,000+ books in print, its time to go to the next level. I envision a network where we not only learn together but that we do life and ministry together.

For years I've taught, if you want to grow a church and lead a healthy life as a pastor (and you can do both!), just look at what the average minister does and do the exact opposite. A renegade pastor is not someone who 'cuts against the grain' for the sake of being different. A renegade is someone who chooses the narrow way because it's the Jesus way . . . the way of life, health and growth. A renegade pastor is someone who stands in the tradition of Peter, Paul, James, Augustine, William Carey, C.S. Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, Billy Sunday and those like them who were discontent with average.

This is a network for pastors who are willing to say "I don't fit in with the crowd" and I'm more concerned with fulfilling my calling from God than being cool, clever or cutting edge. If you want to join me on a journey like none other, than join me in the Renegade Pastors Network.

Nelson Searcy
Lead Pastor, The Journey Church

I'd like to personally invite you to join the Renegade Pastors Network.

Focus areas include:

  • Personal and professional growth
  • Church Health and Growth
  • Advanced Planning
  • Healthy Church Systems
  • Becoming a better spouse and parent
  • Fulfilling your calling as a minister
  • Stress Management and emotional strength
  • And so much more

This is a comprehensive approach to life and ministry. This network is not a coaching network (although many in the network are part of Coaching Networks). This network is not professional counseling. This network is about a lifestyle that honors God, advances the Kingdom and models Biblical priorities.

The Renegade Pastors Network is a monthly subscription MEMBERSHIP program that includes:

  1. The Renegade Pastors LIVE MONTHLY UPDATE AND LEADERSHIP BRIEFING. At the heart of the network is a monthly update and briefing from me via LIVE Conference Call. This monthly "pastor to pastor" call (which will be recorded on MP3 for your library) will be personal, practical, packed with content and slightly irreverent (but in a good way) training where I will challenge you, enlighten you, equip you and guide you to maximize your next season of ministry.

    With the Renegade Pastors Monthly Update and Briefing, you'll always be one step ahead in your planning and fully inspired and equipped to stay the course of the renegade lifestyle ($199.00 per month value).

  2. Monthly Equipping Interview/Conference Call - with me, one of my mentors, a noted author or ministry leader - previous interviews include Steve Stroope, Shawn Lovejoy, Perry Marshall and more. Listen live when you can, and you'll receive an MP3 recording each month ($195.00 per month value).
  3. Two practical, nuts-and-bolts CD's sent directly to your mailbox each month. Even if you can't make the live briefing or equipping calls - we'll be sure you don't miss a thing each month.
  4. Monthly bonus mail package to help you stay on track and ahead of the calendar. This monthly kit will be mailed to you, including recordings, transcripts, members-only opportunities, event invitations and more!

  5. Private Call-In-Hours where you can talk directly to Nelson ($295.00 per month value).
