Leadership Now

Nonprofit leaders growing together

The Trust’s Leadership Now conference is held annually for executive directors who have the responsibility of leading Christian organizations.

Leadership Now: Called to Serve in This Moment

Leaders are navigating a myriad of organizational challenges in the sea change of a global pandemic, cancel culture, threats to religious liberty, challenges to racial justice, and a toxic political season. Nevertheless, leaders must continue to honor their call to serve their respective communities despite the volatility of the times. Leadership Now: Called to Serve in this Moment virtual conference is designed to equip presidents and executive directors with encouragement, inspiration, and guidance from trusted authorities and curated networking circles.

The 2021 conference will take place December 1-2, 2021

*Leadership Now is the updated branding for our annual conference known as Leadership Advance. Our communities have faced unprecedented change in so many ways throughout 2020 and our conference is no exception. As we prepare to deliver the same high quality leadership content in a brand new format, we thought a new “look” felt appropriate. Leadership Now represents the need for innovative management and direction delivered immediately against the rapidly evolving backdrop of community need.
