One Community at a Time

Seeing Communities Flourish

At the Resurgence Leadership Foundation, we envision a world where everyone and everything will be treated with dignity, respect & care because of good leadership.

“The whole city celebrates when the godly succeed; they shout for joy when the wicked die. Upright citizens are good for a city and make it prosper, but the talk of the wicked tears it apart.”                              Proverbs 11:10-11, NLT

Our Mission

We propel faith-fueled communities by investing in leaders.

We provide training, advisors, resources, and financial support to those leaders so
communities can flourish.

People from different backgrounds, faith traditions, and sectors of the city.

Like Rachel, Karl, David and Oliver…

Building the capacity of others

We move under-resourced work to empowered action. Since 2009, Resurgence Leadership Foundation has helped build the capacity of more than 100 nonprofit leaders.

Through the Youth Mentoring Collaborative, in 2020 alone we trained over 100 mentors to better serve the youth within communities across the United States.

Developing Joint Initiatives

We move independent efforts to collective impact. It will take all of us to address the most significant challenges that our communities faces.

Resurgence Leadership Foundation is bringing together experienced leaders, passionate local advocates, and community stakeholders to tackle these challenges head on!
