About Leadership Transformations

What is god inviting you into today?

"Without question, among other things, God is constantly inviting each of us into a deeper and more intimate walk with Him. How are we responding to that moment-by-moment invitation? Imagine ... the God of the universe tapping you on the shoulder every moment of the day. Our lives are so full of noise and activity that we seldom notice. The process of one's personal spiritual formation involves becoming more and more attentive and responsive to His constant invitation. If we're in a leadership role, this has an impact on the entire organization. As the leader goes, so goes the ministry; as the soul of the leader goes, so goes the leader.

Where does spiritual formation fit in the life of the local church?
I envision a Holy Spirit—empowered Church led by spiritual leaders who invite others to discover spiritual maturity together in a spiritual community where spiritual friendships practice spiritual conversations that uphold and affirm spiritual transformation for all, ultimately leading to spiritual renewal—the making of 'little Christs' to light up the world with the love of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit — in our lives, communities, and throughout the world."

-- Dr. Steve Macchia, LTI Founder & President

Vision, Mission, and Core Values

Our vision

For Christian congregations and organizations to be filled with leaders who place spiritual formation, discernment and renewal above all other leadership priorities.

Our mission

To cultivate vibrant spirituality and attentive discernment among Christian leaders and teams.

Our core values:
  • The Trinity — Believing and receiving the extravagant love of the Father, the gracious redemption of his Son, and the empowering presence of his Holy Spirit transforms us.
  • The Word of God — Listening to and obeying Godís Word, the Bible, which is inspired, infallible, trustworthy and authoritative for our lives and shared ministry.
  • Local Church — Participating in a local gathering of the Body of Christ is an expression of our love for God, for our sisters and brothers in the faith, and provides a way for us to share the love of Christ in faithfulness to the Great Commission.
  • Incarnational Ministry — Being present with others, and being attentive to those we are with, summons us to remain faithful to the Holy Spirit in our midst.
  • Authentic Community — Finding joy in being together as a team, sharing in a collaborative ministry as friends and colleagues, we cherish the presence and contribution of each person, offering both encouragement and exhortation to one another, as we seek to multiply spiritually healthy team ministry among those we serve.
  • Vibrant Spirituality — Living with daily practices of reading Godís Word, listening prayer and reflection, we seek to nurture our souls with contemplative practices, prayerful discernment, and a Sabbath lifestyle.
  • Attentive Discernment — Remaining in a listening, open-handed, and spiritually responsive posture we seek to discern God's ongoing invitation, direction, and blessing.

"I've found in my 21 years of ministry many resources that sharpen me, a few that deepen me, but very few that do both. Leadership Transformations does both. It is a rare treasure and a great gift. Any church leader who uses LTI's services will be wiser and richer for it."

"I thank God for the good work of Steve Macchia and Leadership Transformations. May it be used for the good of many in the work of the kingdom of God."

Richard Foster

"I still remember the first time my husband Jeff and I nervously sat in Steve's office, in the summer of 1991. Since that first conversation, I have experienced Steve's ministry as one consistently marked by warm hospitality, soul-level challenge, a ready laugh, and strategic concern for Jesus' bride. LTI's team moves with care, wisdom, and effectiveness into the most important realms--the leader's soul, and the leader's team. Thanks for giving, and for leading, so generously."

"LTI through its Godly leadership in Dr. Steve Macchia has come alongside teams and leaders without gimmicks or 'how to's.' Instead this ministry takes us deeper rather than spreading us shallower. How much Christian leadership today is longing for this depth. LTI will guide you there. I've seen this first hand."
