The GrowLeader Conference is held annually at Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Alabama.

Grow exists to train and resource pastors and churches to help them reach their full growth potential. One way we achieve this goal is through our annual GrowLeader Conference. At GrowLeader Conference, you will be able to learn the heart behind all that Grow has to offer, as well as how to practically implement it into your church—all while experiencing an encouraging and life-giving culture with other pastors and leaders from around the world. Through sessions, you will learn proven church systems and structures that, when implemented, will enable your church to grow to the next level. This dynamic event will empower and refresh you, as well as provide you with the practical ministry tools and resources you need to help your church grow. We hope you can join us for GrowLeader 2021!
