Cluster Groups

All churches are required to be part of a cluster, and senior pastors are required to participate in them. Most clusters are organized on a geographical basis. Here are the various cluster groups, broken down by the four regions.

Below is a tab for each Region, with a list of the cluster and cluster leaders within that region. To find all of the churches in a particular cluster, go to the Church Directory. There, you can search by cluster leader name. You’ll then get the latest list of churches in that cluster.

The clusters are primarily put together on a geographical basis. In most cases, the cluster name is a city which is fairly central or prominent to the churches in that cluster.
