Regional LEAD Hubs

Since 2008, GBHEM has established 11 regional Leadership, Education and Development Hubs (LEAD Hubs) around the world. Each LEAD Hub is a part of the agency’s strategic plan to better serve the global United Methodist Church by training and supporting new leaders throughout the world.

The LEAD Hubs connect GBHEM’s Methodist Global Education Fund for Leadership Development (MGEFLD) and regional associations of Methodist-related educational institutions.

These hubs address the needs of Methodist-related projects and programs and promote education, as well as leadership development opportunities, within area churches and communities.

LEAD Hub projects address everything from the contextual chaplaincy needs of the region, to educational programs that help elementary students learn about food safety and environmental protection.
