Creating a Growth Culture
A free & comprehensive resource for Christian leaders wanting to create a development model that works!
Latest from the desk
A powerful journey into transformation for individuals and groups.
This 6-week journey is the most impacting material I have ever produced. All the principles learned from over a decade of writing and developing people have been distilled into an easy-to-read, and able-to-apply format.
Equipping people to break-through barriers while resting in the strength of God, the course accommodates participants undergoing a weekend retreat after week 2 (material available for Silver Members). This material is a must for any person, group or church wanting to see disciples move on to become the “pneumatikos” (spiritual person) that Jesus promised.

Discipleship resources to refresh the soul and fuel a transformed life
Since 2004, the models and practices I give to you in this website have been tested by practitioners, scrutinised by academics, and undertaken by thousands. They are sound, and have catalysed transformation in so many lives.
I began by transitioning our large, word-centred, middle-class church into the very best of development, transformation and renewal. They continue to see that growth and momentum. Now I am doing it in a whole new way in a different setting.
Along the way I developed a library of resources and experience that have benefited churches everywhere. As a kingdom-based initiative, I want to see local churches thrive as they should, impacting the community God has given them. More about the author here.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
Malcolm Campbell - Pastor
What the world desperately needs is not band-aid solutions to complex problems, but men and women who are experiencing ongoing deep inner transformation that comes from following Christ. What Patrick Hegarty has developed is far more than just another small group curriculum or church wide campaign, it is a well researched, theologically sound resource that has the very real potential to bring about the kind of inner and outer life transformation that Jesus spoke about in the Gospels. After taking our church through his material, the universal testimony was of the the Spirit bringing about significant change in every life.
Catherine Doocey - Psychologist
Patrick’s curricula are outstanding. The way he takes biblical principles and truths, links them with the spiritual element, all the while aligning with evidence-based psychological (behaviourally-based) theory has the power to transform the way people view God, themselves, and others.
As a Christian Psychologist, I look for the linkages between behavioural science and spirituality in what I read and learn. I can see these linkages clearly in Pat’s material. What he includes from a spiritual perspective aligns with what psychological science is discovering. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his material to anyone seeking to understand more about who they are as a person, and more importantly, who they are in Christ.
Tanja Hagedorn - Course Facilitator
Pat's style of teaching is inspiring, relevant and fearlessly to the point, cutting through questions and possible offences - often before they arise. He captivates his audience as he doesn't just speak to the mind, but to the heart. But what makes it truly great to learn from him is that he is real. He relates to people's journeys in his teaching, mentoring and friendships, because his own life continues to be a journey in which it is never about him, but about his Dad, our Father God. Always.
David Ham - Psychologist.
Through the material we have seen most participants in our Church experiencing new joy and freedom in worship, and unprecedented vitality in their walk with God. Many have identified spiritual gifts and are now using them in different areas in the Church. Others have significantly changed their lifestyles as God has shown them areas that were not given over to Him.
Nicci - Participant.
I was in a hugely vulnerable personal place and was very hungry for more of anything and everything The Lord had to give. I came away renewed and restored, even in a time of great sadness. I was changed and with a new understanding of who I was in Christ.
Eddie Zeballos - Pastor.
The solid scriptural foundation and the spiritual manifestation at the Encounter weekends resourced me with a perfect balance for metamorphosis. As for the impact of having run this course for my church three times, the testimonials have been absolutely outstanding and life changing.
Alex - Participant.
Patrick guides people to freedom in Christ through his material and leadership. He is gifted in making complicated things make sense. There were so many ‘ah-ha!’ moments throughout the courses where things I’d been trying to understand just clicked.
