Connect & Collaborate to
Make Austin Better
ABBA restores connection and community among high-level Christian leaders and our combined hope for a better future. We do so by unlocking a leader's God-given potential to mobilize and motivate others who will then unite our community around addressing our city’s most pressing needs.
Austin's Crucial Conversations
We surveyed 250 top Christian leaders in our city and asked them, "What are the most pressing issues facing Austin today?" Forming a series of conversations, we are inviting a select group of leaders to brainstorm and create a plan to help Austin flourish as we tackle those issues. Our goal is to not only help city leaders clearly clarify/define the problem, but to collaborate, and then develop a plan toward sustainable change for our city that does not rest only on our civic and institutional leaders.
The Foundry is committed to fostering mentoring relationships to help small business leaders achieve profitability, develop healthy teams, and create kingdom impact in the city by doing good in Jesus’ name. Because of this, we help uncover solutions to the unique challenges each business owner faces so they can fully realize the vision God has for them through their business.
