We create space for God to strengthen the souls of leaders and transform communities.

For 20 years, the Transforming Center has provided retreats, relationships, and resources for those who long to keep seeking God in the crucible of leadership.

One of the great needs of the church today – becoming a community of discernment. Join us on one of two dates this fall.


We invite pastors, leaders and influencers to experience sacred rhythms in community. From 2-day retreats to 2-year journeys, each is an immersive training experience on spiritual formation themes and practices with companions from diverse backgrounds and theological traditions.


Transforming Resources® — bestselling books, podcasts, blogs, video courses, curriculum and more are designed to provide ongoing guidance and support for your spiritual journey, equipping and empowering you to lead others.
