OUR PURPOSE: To bring glory to God by fulfilling the ministry of Jesus on the earth.
We exist to equip and empower followers of Jesus to maximize their personal leadership potential according to their God-given design and destiny, and to build an interdenominational community of Kingdom-minded leaders providing opportunities for connection and collaboration to catalyze revival in the saints, reformation in the Church and transformation in the world, for the completion of the Great Commission.
Leaders Alliance is led by Dr. Michael Brodeur, who, with his wife Diane, planted a Vineyard Church in San Francisco in the 80s that became the largest evangelical church in the City in a decade. He served for over three decades as a senior pastor and ministry leader in San Francisco, including serving as an overseer for over 20 Vineyard churches in the 90s. After leaving San Francisco, he went on to begin coaching and consulting for churches and ministries around the world. He also worked with Banning Liebscher at Jesus Culture for four years developing curriculum and helping them with their church plant.
In 2004 he co-founded Destiny Finder (destinyfinder.com) with Glen Reed. They developed the Journey Guide, a comprehensive tool for discipleship and leadership development now used by thousands of people around the world.
In 2015 Michael founded Pastors Coach (pastorscoach.com), to focus on training church pastors and leaders. He and his team created a membership, over 50 training courses, and several powerful assessments.
In 2019 Michael began working more closely with the Catch the Fire movement, helping them with their organizational strategy and transition.
In 2021 Leaders Alliance was launched with Michael as the first Director, combining the best of Pastors Coach and Catch the Fire. Leaders Alliance is a ministry of Catch the Fire, but is interdenominational and seeks to encourage, equip and support all types of Kingdom-minded leaders. (see more above)
In 2022 we expanded, adding members and Catalyst groups, and introduced the Community Platform – an online social media platform to enable members to collaborate with each other for equipping, networking and ministry launching.

1. Leaders Alliance is part of…Catch The Fire.
Catch The Fire is the revival movement that emerged from one of the greatest outpourings of the Holy Spirit in human history, known as the Toronto Blessing. Millions visited Toronto to receive a touch from God and millions of others were touched as a result. Thousands were saved, healed and set free and many new churches and movements were launched, carrying this blessing to nations around the world. Leaders Alliance exists as a point of interface with the greater Body of Christ and to help Catch the Fire achieve a future that is greater than the past.
2. Leaders Alliance exists to…Equip and Empower.
Leaders Alliance is more than a place for leaders to BELONG, it is a place for leaders to BECOME everything that Jesus created them to be. Most believers are not aware of their true identity in Christ and therefore are not walking in the fullness of their God-given gifting and leadership potential. To change this, we must empower our members to grow in the supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit and we must equip them in the super-practical dynamics of biblical leadership. Leaders Alliance emphasizes the combination of the supernatural and the super-practical working together to produce world-changing leaders.
3. Leaders Alliance exists to…Maximize Leadership.
The Scripture teachers clearly that every believer is called to be a Spirit-filled ambassador of God‘s Kingdom. We are to be salt and light, flavoring and impacting the world as priests and kings before God (Rev.1:6). We are transformed to be transformers, but sadly, the Church has lost much of our influence and impact in the world over the last 50 years. In order to rectify this situation, we must be willing to admit that in spite of all the wonderful blessings of current Christianity, we have lost ground that needs to be restored for the Great Commission to be fulfilled. This requires maximized leadership.
4. Leaders Alliance celebrates individual Design and Destiny.
Every follower of Jesus has been forgiven, born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. Each believer has been uniquely designed and gifted by God to bless others on God’s behalf. This is what we call “destiny”. One of the primary keys to becoming a disciple of Jesus is to discover your God-given calling and partner with God for the fulfilment of your personal destiny. The secret to maximizing leadership in an individual is to help them discover and fulfill the exact purpose for which Jesus created them. (Eph. 2:10)
5. Leaders Alliance is Interdenominational.
Although we are a ministry of Catch the Fire, we celebrate all branches of the Body of Christ and we are committed to serving leaders from every denomination and movement. We are an inclusive network and our members are encouraged to continue their affiliation with other networks as they also partake of the unique resources that we provide. We continue to draw counsel from advisors who represent a great cross-section of the greater Church of Jesus Christ.
6. Leaders Alliance builds Community.
We are a global community of church, marketplace and thought leaders, united in a common passion to see God’s kingdom come and it will be done on earth as it is in heaven. And as members of the body of Christ we are interconnected with one another in diversity and unity. We honor the diversity and the variety of different biblical perspectives while at the same time we celebrate our unity in the primary doctrines of the Church. Leaders Alliance is a relational forum to facilitate Kingdom community and collaboration among key leaders and innovators to bring God’s strategies for transformation.
7. Leaders Alliance is Kingdom-minded.
The good news of the kingdom of God Is centered on the message of personal salvation but it includes so much more. Jesus died, not only to bring us to heaven but to empower us to bring heaven to earth through the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. This includes leaders influencing every sphere of society bringing the gospel of salvation, healing and freedom to individuals and the systems of this world. Kingdom Leaders recognize the importance of the local church but also realize that the influence of Body of Christ is to penetrate every aspect of human society.
8. Leaders Alliance builds Connection.
Kingdom leadership thrives in interdependency. This is one reason why local church membership is so essential. We need one another, but some needs can only be met by connection with other peer-level leaders. Pastors need pastors. Marketplace leaders need other marketplace leaders. Leaders alliance provides connection-points for a variety of leadership categories. We support Church leaders, Marketplace leaders, Thought leaders and many others who desire to bring God’s Kingdom into their sphere of emphasis.
9. Leaders Alliance creates Collaboration.
In addition to connection and mutual support, we also provide forum to find potential co-workers with whom we can partner for greater synergy and impact. Leaders Alliance will provide personal platforms for all our members to display their personal vision and discover others who are moving in the same vision. We believe that Leaders Alliance will catalyze kingdom partnerships that will produce new churches, projects and initiatives that express the collaboration of our members.
10. Leaders Alliance catalyzes Revival.
Throughout history, the Church has gone through seasons of complacency and compromise. God responds to these seasons by convicting and motivating His people to return to our “First Love” for Jesus and the re-alignment of our lifestyles and our culture with the priorities of God’s Kingdom. Although we experience revival on a seasonal basis, there is no biblical reason why revival cannot be sustainable as long as we abide in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.
11. Leaders Alliance facilitates Reformation.
Five hundred years ago, the protestant reformation brought a massive shift to the Church but sadly this reformation was never fully completed. Martin Luther rediscovered the “Priesthood of Every Believer” but the Church never really changed the way we did church to facilitate this outcome. We need a new reformation. We call it Reformation 2.0: it maximizes the mobilization of every member for ministry according to their God-given design and destiny. It’s time for the Priesthood of Every Believer!
12. Leaders Alliance promotes Transformation.
The Church exists as a destiny incubator for every member to be developed and sent into every sphere of society to bring the transforming influence of the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom is like a mighty tree that bears fruit in every branch of human culture. The Church is not one of the branches but is the very trunk of the tree that develops influencers for every branch. Our vision for transformation of the world, centers on the celebration and reformation of the local church.
