We are championing a new reality for the church and living it into existence.

We exist to create space for God to strengthen leaders and transform communities. We serve leaders of purposeful communities  churches, non-profits, and businesses – who long for new rhythms that allow them to flourish in their life and leadership.  If we’re honest, over time many Christian leaders experience a disconnect between their outer life and their inner life – the presence of God deep within. For this reason, we walk with pastors and leaders, helping them distinguish God’s voice beyond all the noise so they can lead from that place.

In a time of deconstruction – within the church and within ourselves – our community has spent almost 20 years reconstructing leaders and their vision for the church, guiding them in ancient sacramental practices that breathe life back into them and their communities. Grounded in a highly ecumenical approach, we reflect and welcome the diversity that is present in the body of Christ. Our gatherings include leaders from all denominations, a variety of businesses and many organizations like International Justice Mission (IJM), Compassion International, and Neighborhood Film Co.

The retreats, resources, and relationships we offer are designed to provide you with a safe place to be honest about the challenges of spiritual leadership, to experience rhythms of solitude, prayer and community, and to deepen your understanding of leadership that flows from your transforming self. In everything we do, the Transforming Center seeks to be trustworthy, spacious, communal, practical, prophetic, and biblical.
