The WCA Leadership Blog serves a network of leaders who care deeply for the church—all year long. Contributors, both from within the WCA and from our network of churches, are “all in” for maximizing the transformative power of the local church.
Willow Creek Association
The Willow Creek Association (WCA) is a not-for-profit organization that exists to maximize the life-transformation effectiveness of local churches. We do this by stirring up and calling out the core leadership of churches around the world, encouraging them to follow their “holy discontent” as they build life-changing communities of faith. We then equip these leaders with next-step solutions to impact spiritual transformation of their people, their communities, and the world.
At the core of the ministry is deeply held belief that God’s ordained plan to redeem and restore this world for Christ is through the church. We believe that the local church is the hope of the world.
Over the past 18 years, the WCA has developed a respected history of excellence and innovation in serving local churches and their leaders. In that time, the WCA has inspired and trained more than one million church leaders and has created and distributed millions of church resources into tens of thousands of churches representing more than 90 denominations. With 10,000 Member Churches in 35 countries, WCA leadership training events are now held in more than 250 cities in 50 countries each year.
In 2009 alone, 97 percent of WCA Member Churches indicated that the ministry has positively impacted their ability to reach and grow people for Christ.
