Bold and Brave: A Campaign to Invest in Local Faith Leaders


Believing God for Leaders in Faith Together (LIFT)

To follow God’s calling requires bold faith.

The boldness of “faith heroes” are stories we still talk about today.  Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego believed that their God would spare them the flames if they boldly proclaimed His name.  While the Israelites worried for manna, Moses stood firm, boldly reminding them of God’s provision when He delivered them on dry land through the Red Sea. A young virgin followed the angel Gabriel’s instructions, boldly believing God would use her obedience to further His story of salvation.

Supporting bold leaders matters to BHITC.

Bold leadership in our city’s neighborhoods, churches or businesses isn’t easy. Obstacles abound. Feeling like you’re alone in your work is common. That’s why BHITC has launched Leaders in Faith Together (LIFT), a new pilot program centered around accelerating the work, effectiveness and overall growth of local leaders of faith.

Starting this year, LIFT will begin providing capacity-building support to its first co-hort of leaders who all head their own small business or nonprofit organization. Working together, these LIFT leaders, BHITC and its many partners are creating a new network of bold leaders for our city’s future.
