Lead Pastors are no longer assigned to a division. Instead, each Lead Pastor is able to select a Cohort to join. We are requesting that every Senior and Co-Pastor fill out the form below. You will have the option to select a Cohort or select the option to opt-out of joining a Cohort. 

If you want to remain in your current Leaders Cohort, you may select that option. 

Once submitted, the district office will get back to you with confirmation of you being part of the Cohort. If you have any questions about this process, call or email the district office at socal@foursquare.org or 805.498.1600. 

Watch this video from Supervisor Dr. Dennis Easter about Leaders Cohorts and how they work in partnering with you for your unique Kingdom contribution.
