New Lead Like Jesus Headquarters Opens Doors of Opportunity

Lead Like Jesus announces a move of the ministry headquarters to Spartanburg, South Carolina. Located in close proximity to several nonprofits and universities, the new location offers tremendous potential for future growth and organizational partnerships that will increase the global reach of Lead Like Jesus.

“For quite some time, the Board of Directors has been discussing how Lead Like Jesus can become more scalable for the long-term growth and impact of our ministry,” said Phyllis H. Hendry, president and CEO of Lead Like Jesus. “The consensus was that we needed to find a new home in order to support that level of expansion. After much prayer and research, the Board and I were convinced Greenville/Spartanburg is the perfect fit.”

Over the years, Lead Like Jesus has had several connections within the greater Greenville/Spartanburg area. In April 2004, Lead Like Jesus hosted a simulcast event in Spartanburg, which resulted in several new relationships with local, prominent Christian leaders such as Caz McCaslin (founder of Upward Sports) and Hugh Brantley (South Carolina Christian Foundation). Last summer, Lead Like Jesus participated in an event hosted by Anderson University (Greenville, SC) that once again connected the ministry with the community. 

“Our connections here run deep and are wide reaching,” said Hendry. “We are surrounded by ministries and faith-led business leaders who are eager to partner with us.”

One of the goals of the relocation was that Lead Like Jesus would be able to identify shared space with other ministries for the greater stewardship of resources.  At the invitation of McCaslin, Lead Like Jesus officially relocated on July 25, 2015, to the 140-acre Upward Sports campus in Spartanburg, which is also home to the South Carolina Christian Foundation.

“It is incredible to work side-by-side with such like-minded, servant-hearted leaders who are equally passionate about making an impact on the world through Jesus,” said Hendry. “Our great prayer is that someday there will be a new building here, a shared ministry center, where Lead Like Jesus can not only share space but also provide leadership development and training for faith-led organizations seeking to maximize their influence.”

“I am amazed by God’s goodness,” she continued. “We can hardly wait to see all that He does through our ministry in this next chapter.”
