Lott Carey Global Christian Missional Community, Landover, Md.

Lott Carey is a multicultural, ecumenical, global Christian missional community born of African-American Baptist heritage that provides prayer partnership, financial support and technical assistance to indigenous communities around the world who engage in ministries of evangelism, compassion, empowerment and advocacy.

Project title: Developing Leaders the Lott Carey Way

Through the Leadership Development Grant, Lott Carey will nurture early career leaders as they embrace values of collaboration and global vision in their leadership development and practices. Lott Carey Executive Secretary-Treasurer David Goatley, who will serve as project director, identifies collaboration as a significant leadership challenge and opportunity. “While younger leaders may have a greater tendency toward collaboration compared to the generation before them, they often witness less collaborative approaches in pastoral leaders,” he wrote. “As a result, the external influences to replicate presumed effective or successful models can work against internal inclinations.” Participants in Lott Carey’s Leadership Development Grant program will be invited to lead in one of 60 Mission Impact Team positions in ways that affect global and collaborative approaches to serving and leading.
