  1. 1


    Equipping leaders with the knowledge and tools to transform their communities

  2. 2


    Impacting Africa, Israel, and Black America through incarnational action  

  3. 3


    Connecting leaders who are biblical in their worldview, ethical in their orientation, and global in their perspective
