LEAD exists for you – we are in it together. Friends, we have a heartfelt request for each of you to invest $10 in LEAD this month to help us grow and expand the resources and services we offer leaders and faith communities in 2018.

Leaders are launching community gardens, initiating new faith practices, partnering with local schools, asking hard questions, responding to needs in their neighborhoods, creating strategic plans, identifying shared core values and a clear purpose, and so much more with YOUR support through LEAD. Their stories are pouring in and inspiring new resources for a new year. This is where you come in.

We are asking you to donate $10 by January 31 in honor of the 10,000+ volunteer hours our team has given to provide you with these top 10 resources. Please show your love by donating today.

Here are the Top 10 ways LEAD has supported leaders in 2017. Together we can make an even bigger impact in 2018!
