Breaking barriers in culture, leadership and finances. 

Make Room Whiteboard Sessions provide an environment for pastors and leaders to connect and learn from Pastor John Siebeling and The Life Church Team. We want to see you define culture, strengthen leadership, and develop finances in your church. We’d love to have you and your team be a part of one (or all!) of the Whiteboard Sessions.

Details of each session are below, so you and your team can choose to be a part of any number or combination of sessions. Each Whiteboard Session costs $200 for the lead pastor and $150 for each additional team member (up to 4.) If you have any questions about the sessions or registration, please feel free to reach out directly to our team at

“I’ve learned so much from my time at Make Room and implemented organizational changes because of it. We broke 1,000 in attendance at Easter and I believe that the infrastructure and cultural values I learned at Make Room made that possible.”

Rafael Paez, Lead Pastor | The Anchor Church

“Big conferences can make it very difficult to connect with people, but Make Room is a much more intimate setting and everyone is available to connect and answer questions one-on-one. Any pastor looking to grow their church needs to experience Make Room.”

Brad Hampton, Lead Pastor | SOCO Church

“Make Room has given me permission to lead with clarity and authenticity to strategically execute the vision for our church. Thanks to what we learned at Make Room, we’ve moved from ‘cookie cutter church’ to a unique experience for the people in our region.”

Wayne Francis, Lead Pastor | Life Church New York
