What is Aspire
What is Aspire

We recognize the need to invest into the next generation of church leaders. The ASPIRE team is a hand-picked group of men and women from our church who meet once a month to receive training from Pastor Rich and other amazing leaders. Our goal is to get these trained leaders plugged into ministry at Hessel right away.  We are excited about what God is doing through the next generation!


“There were so many amazing aspects of Aspire, but my top two favorites were learning about our leadership and spiritual gifts and how everyone was able to apply them during serve day, and the relationships I made with others in the group.  I’m so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of this training!”

“Leadership isn’t something that’s normally associated with the Christian faith.  However, when we collectively take a dive into Scripture, we find many instances of how Jesus and others leave examples of how to be a Christian leader.  When we disseminate these verses and chapters, we are finding that it is essential that leadership in churches should be kept at the forefront of our day to day lives in order to ensure that we prosper as a church body.”

“Aspire is an amazing opportunity to grow in the Lord, connect with others at a deeper level and be challenged to submit yourself to the Lord’s work.  You learn the qualities of an influential leader and how to apply the principles you learn in the group.”
