About Leadership Transformations


"In these spiritually challenging times, the great need is for Christian leaders who are being spiritually formed in Christ so they can become spiritually discerning in understanding God's clarion call. When that happens, God's unique will for their individual lives and shared ministry with others is fulfilled."

Rev. Dr. Stephen A. Macchia, LTI Founder and President

Leadership Transformations, Inc. (LTI) was born out of passionate concern for the spiritual vitality of leaders and leadership teams in local church and parachurch ministry settings nationwide. Leadership Transformations, Inc. was officially launched on July 1, 2003, and is recognized by the IRS as a charitable organization (described in IRS code, section 501(c)(3) as a tax exempt organization). Steve Macchia, and a group of individuals who share a common passion for serving today's Christian leaders, founded LTI as a unique leadership development ministry. Convinced of the need for spiritual leadership that works from a soul-based approach, they set out to pioneer a new work with this strategic focus.

"Depth of Soul ~ Vitality in Service"
It is out of the depth of one's soul, in alignment with God's call, that leaders and teams experience health and vitality in serving Christ and fulfilling his will. When leaders and teams are in concert with God's divine plan for their individual lives and their shared ministries, there is increased joy and effectiveness. As Great Commandment leaders (loving God with heart, soul, mind and strength), they become zealously attuned to fulfilling the Great Commission (serving for the purpose of discipling all nations in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

"The CHAT church survey really stands out. I like how CHAT identifies your church's strengths, involves every member, is easy to take online, and offers highly-readable results. What a great tool to assess where you are, fill people with hope, and together discern God's will for your future."

"Steve Macchia is at it again. His burning passion to see churches achieve maximum health has taken the next step. CHAT (Church Health Assessment Tool) provides churches with an easy-to-use look at themselves that could move many congregations toward the health that Steve (and, more importantly, the Spirit) envisions."

"Without a doubt, one of the greatest needs of a large number of churches in America is to become more healthy. Leadership Transformations' new CHAT survey should be a great help to all who use it. It is a joy to recommend it to you!"
