There are many “street saints” in our country—those people who are called to live and minister in distressed neighborhoods.

At Desire Street, our purpose is to walk with those street saints and help them to become thriving and sustainable. To this end, we offer a Thriving Leaders Series, which brings together urban leaders for a day intended to strengthen you as a leader in your mission.

We hold two sessions per year, Fall and Spring. Anyone is invited, so please check back periodically and sign up for a session. You can also watch the previous sessions below or at our Center for Thriving Leaders.

Our next Thriving Leaders session will be in Spring 2017. Please check back later for date and time.
