Crave Leaders

You landed here because you would likely be a great match for an exciting effort to provide accompaniment to promising new, mostly spiritually unaffiliated leaders who serve emerging common cause communities (think: education, homelessness. hunger).

A new generation of leaders is burgeoning to address our country’s crisis of isolation and spiritual poverty. These leaders — like the people they serve — tend to be religiously unaffiliated, and yet they work every day to bring longing hearts into meaningful, life-giving, transformative communities.

What these leaders say they need, above all else, is companionship by elders/learning partners and spiritual enrichment. Those with roots in institutional religious life may recognize these longings by other names like spiritual direction and formation. If you are someone who has a heart for walking along side an emerging leader in our community, please take a few moments to tell us more about yourself below.  We promise to follow up with you for a deeper conversation regarding this remarkable opportunity.
