Church Membership

Since the very conception of Hillsong Church, our heart has been to connect, equip and serve the Local Church – which includes your ministry and the people in your world, helping you to flourish and reach your God-given potentialAlthough our planet faces ever-increasing global crisis, when the Church unites, we gather forces to push back the powers of darkness and gain ground for the Kingdom of God. We are entrusted with the only authentic hope for humanity, a very bright light in a dark and threatening world – Jesus.

There is something very powerful about a company of people, encouraging each other to embrace our cities and nations with the love, hope and goodness of a compassionate and faithful God. Collectively we are making a difference for Jesus – we are better together! The goal of the Hillsong Leadership Network is to “Champion You & Your Local Church”, and we do this through nurturing relationships with leaders and resourcing you to grow healthy churches – whether that’s through live events you’re invited to or online resources found on this Portal.

In fact, through the Hillsong Leadership Network we can share with you the combined experience of 35+ years of Hillsong Church, in all its different shapes, sizes and contexts around the world. While Hillsong is definitely not a perfect church, there are Biblical principles we have learned through both trial and error, and through the many varied and valuable partnerships we have held over the years that direct the practical, day-to-day behind-the-scenes of all our ministerial endeavours.

More than ever, I believe that together, as individual believers and churches, we have the opportunity to bring answers, hope and love to a world seeking truth. We would love to connect, encourage and invest in you through the Hillsong Leadership Network as together, in partnership, we advance His Kingdom on earth.

Founders & Global Senior Pastors Hillsong Church

Your Global Community

The Hillsong Leadership Network is a global community of Senior Pastors united in partnership with Hillsong Church to see the Church rise up in influence and stature. Through personal relationship with the Hillsong team our desire is to practically resource you to grow a healthy local church. Our members are invited to intimate live training events throughout the year, supplemented by downloadable resources from our Online Portal.

Like-Minded & Like-Spirited

All churches of any denomination, tradition, size, age, language or governance structure are welcome to join the Hillsong Leadership Network. Our membership consists of like-minded and like-spirited Senior Pastors who have an unquenchable passion to grow a healthy local church, but are looking for support and encouragement on the leadership journey – realising that we are not competing, but are better together!


We would love to invite all Senior Pastors to peek behind-the-scenes of Hillsong Church and learn from both our highs and lows. Our members are keen to expand their frame of reference, and realise the potential of being found in an environment of generous sharing, constant learning and creative innovation. None of us are or ever will be perfect churches, but we’re in this together!

“The Hillsong Leadership Network is brilliant because it gives practical insight on how to train leaders, see people discipled, win the lost and bring good management processes into the life of the church. But I think also what’s really important is relationship. In leading a church it can be tough and lonely sometimes, you need to find peers or people ahead of you that you can pick up the phone and ask for help. So relationship and practical insight to leadership management are two really massive keys.”

“We are forever grateful for the opportunity to be on the journey together and be a part of the Hillsong Leadership Network. Being connected is a game changer! The relationships, resources, encouragement, revelation, leadership tools, webinars and conferences have all had a huge kingdom impact in our lives and the life of our churches. We are not just better leaders because of it, we are better people! The Network is an answer to prayers we prayed years ago to connect with those who are further down the road than we are and doing the journey well.”

Craig & Monie Lotze
Victory Faith Church, Spokane, USA

“We have been a part of the Network for a number of years now. Through this time we have loved the openness and honesty of leaders sharing at Network sessions, the connections and friendships that have been made, and the inspiration received to push deeper into God so that we as individuals and as a local church go to another level. Our team have also really enjoyed and greatly benefited from access to Network resources, which are practical and motivational. Who you connect with makes all the difference to your destination and we believe that we are better together.”

Models You Can Follow

Over our 35 year journey we have developed tried and tested systems to facilitate discipleship and church growth that are designed to work in any environment. Our desire is to empower you to step up and lead in greater influence by standing on our shoulders.

Insights From Experience

Our heart is to candidly share the original principles and current practises being implemented to help build Hillsong Church. Our members benefit from the sharing of ideas and resources that have been proven on the ground throughout all the areas of church life. We pray these insights would empower your decision making, and help establish God’s Kingdom across the earth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is The Leadership Network Only Open To Specific Denominations?

The Hillsong Leadership Network is a group of local, Biblically-based churches and ministries, of likespirit and like-mind, from across the globe. These are local churches, which are not linked to Hillsong Church in any way other than relationally. The Hillsong Leadership Network is not a denominational movement or spiritual covering, and is not designed to replace nor compete with existing afliations. Instead it is a place for churches of various denominations and styles to be connected, encouraged and resourced.

I'm Just About To Plant A Church, Should I Join As A Member?

We love to champion church planters and have resources and team available to support this vital mission. In the early stages of planting a church finance can often be limited and therefore we would encourage church planters to take advantage of all the resources and webinars available at the complimentary Associate level before applying to become a paid member.

I Am Not A Senior Pastor, Can I Join As A Member?

The goal of the Hillsong Leadership Network is to champion Senior Pastors and the local churches they lead.

However such leaders are welcome to join as a complimentary Associate and make use of the Online Portal resources.
