Summit Leadership Foundation

We believe that better leaders = better communities.

Summit Leadership Foundation was born out of a passion for connecting the right people and the right resources. Dave McAuley founded Summit in 2004 after reading the book Halftime and realizing that if he was ever going to act on that passion, now was the time.

From humble beginnings at his dinning room table to our current 21,000 square foot facility, Summit’s mission of serving communities around the world with the love of Jesus Christ by creating relational hubs for connecting, consulting, coaching, and caring has never wavered. Today we are blessed to serve over 100 non-profits, ministries, and churches.
