We unite our city's influencers in community.
We equip influencers by providing actionable leadership content that ignites movement.
Our initiatives include an active Facebook page for leaders, monthly email newsletters, outreach to the Douglas Country Correctional Center, and ongoing research and development in the lanes of city-wide leadership development.
Unified and equipped leaders are mobilized to serve our city (and beyond) with Christ-like influence.
We serve our city through city prayer initiatives and the annual CityServe event (in partnership with Within Reach.) We serve our world through our financial support of an emerging leadership movement in North Macedonia.
