From connecting to giving to transforming, each team tackles something a little different, but are all working towards the same goal: a better community. Explore each one to find out how you can help them change hearts and minds across Austin and beyond!
Austin Bridge Builders Alliance (ABBA)
By connecting and investing in pastors, affirming business leaders, empowering nonprofit leaders, and champion community, ABBA is innovating the networking ecosystem by bringing the conversation of faith to the table. Their missional goal is “the most effective and efficient way to achieve a flourishing community is through fostering 100 Kingdom Alliances over the next 10 years (providing long-term solutions to social and spiritual needs). When the local church and community have greater capacity to move beyond isolation, our primary barrier, our community increasingly flourishes (spiritually and socially) and the Kingdom of God advances.”
To achieve this, they have created groundbreaking programs such as the Pastors In Covenant, Emergent Leader Initiative, and the Business Leadership Series.
Founded by #faithbuilder Christine Caine, A21 is fueled by radical hope that human beings everywhere will be rescued from bondage and completely restored. Proclaimed the abolitionists of the 21st century, A21 works with you to free slaves and disrupt the demand. Their mission is to abolish slavery everywhere, forever. Their vision? A world without slavery. They are currently operating in 12 different countries and oversee hundreds of teams working for a common goal.
