Real Change


Convening executive leaders to innovate the Church's future.

What We Do

We help you connect with like-minded leaders, tackle your biggest
leadership pain points, and drive the breakthroughs your church needs. 

Connect

We provide executive leaders exclusive access to thought leaders, mentors and like-minded peers. Our Leader Groups and Executive Team experiences are customized by church size and complexity to ensure leaders have access to the cohort of relationships and expertise that they need most.

Innovate

We help you tackle solutions to your most pressing challenges. When we gather we get you in the room with top thought leaders and mentors. You will have exclusive access to best practices; but even more than that, you will learn processes of innovation that will help you and your team continually unearth new models, methods, and ‘aha’ solutions for exponentially advancing your church.

Implement

We track with you for ongoing coaching and accountability to ensure that your 'aha' discoveries are translated into reality. You will be provided ongoing support, resourcing and strategic tools for achieving your breakthrough plans. Once you become part of the ELS community, we are committed to your ongoing needs and impact.

INNOVATION LABS:


Bringing the best leadership and insights to the church.

The moment I learned that Darren was part of Executive Leadership Solutions I knew it would be a great opportunity for sharp leaders to develop their heart, mind and skills in a practical and relevant way. This could help take you to the next level.

I was in an XP Leader Group several years back. The relationships I built there were life giving for me as a leader. A month doesn't go by that I'm not messaging with several of the guys. I would highly recommend an XP Leader Group with Executive Leadership Solutions.

Being committed to lifelong learning is foundational for anyone aspiring to lead. I’ve found that learning as a part of a diverse community of kingdom minded leaders is one of, if not the best way to learn. Executive Ministry Solutions goes above and beyond to create environments where real time issues are discussed and real access is given to some of the sharpest and most seasoned leaders of our day.

Leadership is lonely. But it shouldn't be isolating. Leaders need connection with peers and mentors who understand their world and can offer coaching and support for the journey. Darren and the team at Executive Leadership Solutions do a remarkable job of creating community among your peers while also equipping you with practical insights and resources to help you thrive in your leadership.

I’m worried about the consequences of discouragement among leaders and pastors. 2021 is going to be a dogfight and it will take unprecedented leadership to move the church forward.
