Global Initiatives Foundation is a pioneering organization, mobilizing a unique breed of God’s people who are blessed to serve as being a blessing within their communities. Global Initiatives has become a catalyst for opportunity with the growth of the competence, gifts and creativity of game-changers when faced with discontinuities. Established by Morris and Carol Ruddick, their efforts offer vision, training and strategy for community builders and those at the forefront of God’s faith-based marketplace agendas, as ambassadors of God’s light where God’s light is dim. We invite you to explore our site to discover more about our initiatives and impact around the globe.

Global Initiatives’ primary purpose promotes entrepreneurial, leadership and economic development opportunities that build community within environments challenged by disruptions, change and the crises of our day.

Employing enduring strategies to enable opportunity and bring increase, Global Initiatives has developed a focus of agendas that draw from the ancient paths in addressing the realities faced during times of crisis and change.

What Global Initiatives Does

These efforts include a specialty in addressing poverty in lands with challenging spiritual and economic environments. It is a thrust that strengthens and equips the brethren to serve their communities as the head and not the tail, as community builders and people of influence. In doing so, we impart a Kingdom mindset, along with five major strategies and areas of focus:

  • Planting God’s Economy and Mobilizing Community Builders to Apply Jewish Business Secrets
  • Igniting the Joseph-Daniel Marketplace Leadership Calling
  • Promoting Alliances and Agendas that Support the Restoration of Israel
  • Mentoring the Next Generation of Entrepreneurial Leaders
  • Empowering Ambassadors of Hope to Reverse the Curse of Poverty.

While we consider what we do as marketplace ambassadors and a Kingdom School of Business to be strategic, in reality our efforts have a ripple effect. The real impact comes from what we impart to and activate among those on the ground, our brethren in these lands of tough spiritual and economic environments. Our activities include the training, counsel, workshops, webinars, talks, blogs, videos, books and mentoring offered to emerging leaders with this mantle. These activities have not only resulted in the start of scores and scores of businesses that feed families among the brethren, but has been the catalyst in the start of initiatives such as a private school, orphanages and the spiritual mentoring of young entrepreneurs, as well as ventures designed to support such agendas.
