CTGA - Leadership

The Christ Together Greater Austin network consists of eleven churches throughout the Greater Austin area. We come together to inspire, connect, challenge and support each other, as well as the churches of Greater Austin. Born out of years of prayer, the senior pastors in this inter-denominational network share a common passion, vision and purpose: communicating and demonstrating the good news of Jesus Christ with every man, woman and child.

The Pastor’s and the churches they represent, deeply love the city of Austin and its people.

In August 2016 the Christ Together Greater Austin board pastors gathered for their annual board retreat at Jordan Ranch. CTGA is tremendously blessed by spiritual leaders praying, in fellowship and vision casting for our city.
