Uncommon leaders shouldn't be so rare.

In 2024, we’re on a mission to change this. As we move forward in this new season of the local church, our mandate at Leading Second is to equip local churches everywhere to raise up UNCOMMON leaders.

Thank You Partners!


Because of our great ministry partners, Leading Second’s first six years of ministry have produced Kingdom fruit:

  • Successful completion of a sixth season of the Leading Second Podcast, with over 15,000 unique leaders tuning in just this year. 
  • Hosted two Leading Second Camp events including our first international event in Alberta, CA.
  • Launched Leading Second Build to provide organizational diagnosis, coaching, and development for churches.
  • Completed the first round & launched a second round of our new format, year-long Coaching Groups.
  • Launched Leading Second+, an exclusive online video-resource platform, to strengthen and develop church leaders and equip local churches in their leadership development efforts.
  • Continued the development and care of an international volunteer team serving this vision each week.


Leading Second’s Partner team is made up of individuals and churches who have committed to come alongside us in prayer and financial investment in order to fuel ministry strength and expansion.


In other words, a team of the most Kingdom-minded givers on the planet.

These gifts will specifically go toward purchasing gear, developing content and producing resources for leaders everywhere. 

Goal: $20,000 in one time gifts (through end of year 2024)

Regular monthly gifts are vital, as they allow us to hire staff and develop long-term strategies for growth. These gifts will specifically go toward team development and ministry expansion. 

Goal: $10,000 additional / month in 2024

Total Giving Goal: $140,000

Thank you for your partnership! We’re crazy enough to believe the local church can be stronger and healthier because of the work we’ll do together.


Leading Second is almost four years old, and is currently supported by a volunteer team of 30+ leaders from across North American. As the ministry grew coming out of the COVID season, our need for greater stewardship became clear. In the fall of 2021, we took a step of faith and hired a Ministry Director, our first full-time team member. We’re dreaming of what future team expansion could look like.

Our heart is for our team to remain heavily volunteer, but to be led and managed with excellence and consistency.

Your financial giving will allow us to continue to build the team we have in our hearts, fueling our vision in greater measure.

If you have it in your heart to involve members of your team on the Leading Second team, please let us know. Consider us an extension of your church’s heart to resource the greater body of Christ.

We have a strong onboarding process that includes lead pastor approval for any ministry involvement. Our aim is that your team’s involvement with Leading Second only strengthens their heart for your local church vision (and never competes).
