Helping nonprofit ministry leaders thrive

Who We Are:

Our Story

Founded in 2007 in Atlanta, GA, the LEAD Institute has been empowering faith-called nonprofit leaders for more than a decade. LEAD strives to be a trusted resource, providing programs that are designed to equip, connect, and transform nonprofit leaders and organizations.

On April 1, 2021, the LEAD Institute merged with Orchard. LEAD and Orchard have a long history of collaborative work spanning over a decade. Our working partnership led us to conversations about the complimentary strategic visions of our organizations. We saw an incredible opportunity to expand the reach of the LEAD Institute's work to impact more nonprofit leaders.
