COhatch is an innovative co-working concept that aims to become the new Town Hall for America. Opposite the big box model for co-working, COhatch builds a dozen or so small units in each community to restore historic properties (fire stations, libraries, churches), offer a mix of work and recreational space, and create intentional strategies to uplift the faith-based nonprofit community in the world.

Lionheart Revolving Launch Fund

Are you concerned about current and future generations leaving the church? Do you want to see every child meet Jesus where they are?

Lionheart Children’s Academy wants to plant seeds where the soil is most ready to receive: in the lives of children before the age of 13, and again in the lives of young families when they are in need of childcare and open to spiritual guidance.
