The gift of leadership is necessary for any group of people to make progress together, whether they’re part of a family, a church, or a family of churches (Romans 12:8). We believe apostles are given to lead families of churches (Ephesians 4:11-12). It's this leader, along with his team, who casts the vision and sets the tone for what the family does together.
Confluence churches are organized into five regional hubs, and the leaders of these hubs form an apostolic team. Bryan Mowrey serves as the apostle who leads this team. He is based at Jubilee Church in Kirkwood, MO, where he also serves as lead elder and regional hub leader for the Midwest. Here’s the complete list of regional hubs and leaders:
- Northwest: led by Bo Noonan
- Northeast: led by Ian Ashby
- Southeast: led by Carl Herrington
- California: led by Travis Aicklen
- Midwest: led by Bryan Mowrey
While most of their responsibilities are centered around their local and regional churches, hub leaders serve all Confluence churches, not only the ones nearest them. Because of the strong relationships between regional hubs, we collaborate often and learn from each other. Through regular communication, conferences, training weekends, and church visits, our regional hub leaders work together to serve and unify the whole family.
