Growing leaders with deep, bold, consequential faith

LEAD is a Christian, nonprofit organization birthed out of the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod. We are focused on empowering Christian leaders, transforming faith communities and influencing the world. LEAD offers coaching and consulting, strategic planning, pilgrimages, learning seminars, Camp Hope Day Camp Ministries and resources to support both individuals and congregations. Free resources include print-ready liturgies for Advent and Lent, our weekly newsletter for leaders, and the 10 Minute Toolbox – a video series for congregational councils.

LEAD’s professional coaches, consultants, and experienced staff are committed to personally deepening our faith and providing experiences that help others do the same. LEAD believes that faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace and this same faith invites people to show up in the world in ways that align their values and their practices. It’s about following Jesus, living every day as a disciple.

As it is, there are many parts, but only one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you.”

~ 1 Corinthians 12:20-22a
