COGL Events

COGL hosts catalytic events each year to connect Christian Leaders to each other. All of our events include intentional aspects of prayer and discipleship. We believe communication with God and with each other are keys to a healthy Body of Christ in our region. We limit our events to ensure unified participation and allow time and space for churches and organizations to continue doing the work to which they have been called. Check out all of our fellowship and equipping events and annual service event !

Annual City Service Event

Each year, COGL partners with local churches, organizations, businesses and government officials to reach out and serve in our community. Past events have included Food Drop (2009-11), Bless Fest (2013), and I Love My City Lansing (2014-Present). Our goal in these events is to provide a catalyst for people of good will and people of good faith to serve with various organizations in the area year-round for sustainable, positive change in our region. Click Here for more information regarding our current service event and how you can get involved.

Pastors’ Retreat

The COGL Pastors’ Retreat is an opportunity for senior church leaders from the Tri-County area to join together for a time to relax, refresh, and strengthen relationships with one another. We greatly value the work the church leaders do in our region and know that it’s not easy to do alone. The retreat purposes to intentionally deepen relationships between pastors and increase authenticity, transparency, and vulnerability in their relationships, moving the pastors out of isolation. Click Here if you are a senior church leader who would like to receive email updates regarding COGL Pastors’ Retreats. Register Here for the next COGL Pastors’ Retreat.


Multiply Conference

COGL puts on one unified conference every other year that is designed for Christian leaders to bring their leadership team, friends, ministry or business colleagues, to learn what discipleship looks like in their particular cultural context. COGL invites internationally respected Christian teachers to speak as a means to support the local Church in its role to equip the saints to do the work that God has prepared in advance for them (Ephesians 4:12). Click Here if you would like to receive email updates regarding COGL’s Annual Conference. Register Here for the next COGL Conference.
