Seeing the city as a playground

At the Shalem Leadership Foundation, we seek to envision a city described in Zechariah 8: 4-5 

“Old men and old women will come back to Jerusalem, sit on benches on the streets and spin tales, move around safely with their canes—a good city to grow old in. And boys and girls will fill the public parks, laughing and playing—a good city to grow up in.”

Our Mission

We exist to equip leaders and empower underserved communities for the spiritual and social renewal of the city of Shalem.

 

Engaging leaders of good faith and good will

The Shalem Leadership Foundation brings people together to work together for the common good of the city. We move isolated individuals to collaborative engagement.

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

Like Terrance and Malik…

Building the capacity of others

We move under-resourced work to empowered action. Since 2001, Shalem Leadership Foundation has helped build the capacity of more than 200 nonprofit organizations.

Through our Charity to Change initiative, in 2020 alone we equipped 19 local congregations to better serve the vulnerable in their community and engage in local justice issues.

Developing Joint Initiatives

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

Shalem Leadership Foundation is bringing together people from across the city to tackle these challenges head on!
