“We Were Established To Love Leaders”
In 1998, my pastor, Bishop Richard Hilton, challenged me to accept the call to lead pastors. I had resisted for some time and I will never forget the day he and I were riding together in my car. He said to me, “Court, if you will accept it i will be the first pastor to join the network.” I was in a moving car so I couldn't jump out! I said yes and in 2000 the pastors who were walking with me selected me to serve as their pastor. Among them were Richard Hilton and Carlton Mcleod. Over time we would grow to about 70 domestic churches and hundreds of international and mission works. What began as Calvary Alliance of Churches and Ministries has evolved into Calvary Leadership Network!
“We Exist To Add Value To Leaders And Their Organizations”
My research has shown that pastors today are in desperate need of opportunities for growth for themselves and their teams. Less are looking for spiritual fathers who can ordain them and more are in search of brothers who can affirm and coach them.
“We Are Committed To A Servant Leader Model”
Calvary Alliance employs a team of leaders in an effort to help meet the needs of our members. From licensed marriage and family counselors to church planting facilitators to those who focus on global missions we have developed a team to meet a plethora of ministry concentrations.
“We Want To Intentionally Provide What You Need”
Those who partner with us have access to all of our online content. Teaching on team building, communication plans, improving systems, job description templates and much more. Monthly Zoom calls to coach and encourage great leaders along with opportunities for roundtables with leaders like Sam Chand, John Maxwell and Chris Hodges. All designed with you and your team in mind.

“We Are As Diverse As God’s People”
Calvary Leadership Network has members from numerous faith traditions and we provide a safe place for denominational and independent church leaders. We don’t ask you to “leave someone else to connect with us”. We believe that having several connections helps to unite us all.
Today we are much more than an alliance of pastoral leaders but we are a network of men and women serving around the globe in various capacities that include missions, chaplaincy, counseling, business and church leadership.
