Leadership isn't about titles, positions, or authority. It's about excellent stewardship of your God-given influence.
We believe you are an influencer and you were made for community.
An influencer has the power to affect the decisions of others.
We believe you are a leader and are wired with God-given potential to impact our city.
A leader inspires confidence and moves other people to action.
We're here to connect you to a supportive community of over 2,500 local influencers and leaders.
Omaha Leaders is a community designed for YOU.

What to Expect at a Leaders Lunch
When you arrive at a Leaders Lunch, you'll be greeted by a member of the Omaha Leaders team. Make sure that you register for the lunch ahead of time to reserve your seat and your meal!
Every leaders lunch begins with a time for you to pick up your meal, choose your seat, and enjoy your lunch while getting to know the other leaders at your table. We also open each gathering with a time of prayer.
Feeling uneasy about attending lunch alone? The Omaha Leaders leadership team can be clearly identified by our blue shirts. If you don't have someone to sit with, please choose a chair next to one of us because we're eager to meet and welcome you!
After the speaker message has concluded, we intentionally leave space for discussion time around your table. We'll provide a few application questions to get the conversation flowing, but lunch attendees often find that conversations naturally move toward what's going on within their sphere of influence and how the message can be applied.
The result? True community that is igniting
Each leaders lunch features a speaker (often a local business, church, or non-profit leader) who has prepared a message for our audience. You can expect to hear real stories with takeaways from leaders moving people to action daily.
"I love that when I go to a leaders lunch, I get to spend time with people in our community I normally wouldn't have the chance to share a meal with. Attending a lunch reminds me that I'm not alone in my leadership journey."
