Leaders In Memphis
We serve leaders who desire to move from ambivalence, distraction and uncertainty to confident clarity of mission and daily purposeful action.
You have significant authority and responsibility. Many people look to you for leadership. You want to be sure you guide others well. Prioritizing correctly is one of your chief concerns. You want to know what God’s Word says in order to inform your life and leadership.
You see limitless possibilities for the Kingdom and others. You want to see God’s Word make a difference in the world. You appreciate original thought and tested wisdom. You approach both problems and solutions with creativity and purpose. You are comfortable challenging the status quo, but want to make sure your work is grounded in ultimate truth.
You build bridges between people and ideas for the benefit of individuals and organizations. You want to know how you can better invest your time and talent to make a difference. You want to know what God says about life’s purpose so you can help others make an impact on the world.
You work hard and think deeply. You ask excellent questions about the validity of things—values, plans, ideas, statements, and organizations—that others accept as fact, because you want to do what is right. You want to know if there is real truth and how to apply that truth to the inconsistencies you see in the world.

What We're About
Christ and the Word of God are the same (John 1:1-4). We place the infallible, Holy Spirit inspired Word of God at the center of everything we teach and discuss. We believe Christ created all things visible and invisible and that all things are created through him and for him (Colossians 1:16). In Christ we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
Jesus was the most powerful and the most humble person to walk the earth (Philippians 6-11). Since Christ has reconciled us to God be making peace by the blood of the cross (Colossians 1:20) — we have everything we need In Christ, we no longer need to live for ourselves, we can live with Christ like assurance and humility as we serve others (Luke 10:29-37, Philippians 2:1-5).
The Kingdom of God is coming and is now here (Mark 1:15). God is making all things new (Revelation 21:1). The Gospel of Jesus means that God is reclaiming everything that is his. We are called to repent, believe, and follow our Savior and King. Trust Him with your life as you engage in His work to make disciples of all nations. Use your gifts — design, build, invest, communicate, teach, lead...spend your life and resources blessing others as you spread the love of Christ.
All people are made in the image of God with the same dignity. Heaven will be full of people from every nation, tribe, and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands praising God (Revelation 7:9). Therefore we will honor diversity and inclusion in all we do now.
We love Memphis and aim to see our people, organizations, and city prosper. We look for ways to bless our neighbors, coworkers, and all of our citizens by building, creating, buying, selling, giving, and collaborating in ways that promote the common good of our city (Jeremiah 29:4-5,7).
