A Nationwide Network
A coalition of pastors and faith leaders around the country
To educate, equip and empower faith-based leaders to embrace and apply biblical principles to life and in the marketplace

We envision a nation of flourishing communities that are created and sustained by a multi-generational network of Christian leaders.

what people say about us
The Douglass Leadership Institute is a fantastic organization. I am proud to support the great work of righteousness and justice throughout America.
I am honored to support, endorse, and partner with the Douglass Leadership Institute. It’s work in criminal justice reform and strengthening the Black family, two issues of paramount importance to the liberation of African-Americans, is rooted in the Christian tradition of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
Douglass Leadership Institute under Dean Nelson’s leadership is a great ally in the battle for the heart and soul of America as they equip Christians with the practical tools they need to impact the culture for Christ.
