Global Initiatives Foundation is a pioneering organization, paving new ground for God’s people who are blessed to be a blessing, serving as catalysts for change in a time of growing discontinuities. Global Initiatives Foundation was established by Morris and Carol Ruddick to serve, encourage and train community builders and those at the forefront of God’s marketplace agendas and faith-based initiatives programs, as well as serving as ambassadors of God’s light and truth where God’s light is dim. We invite you to explore our site to discover more about our impact around the globe.

Employing enduring strategies that enable opportunity and bring increase, Global Initiatives has developed a focus of agendas that are proving timely and pertinent to the issues faced during times of crisis and change. 

What Global Initiatives Does

Our efforts reflect a specialty in addressing the issue of poverty in lands with challenging spiritual and economic environments. It is a thrust that strengthens 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
  • Applying Jewish Business Strategies and Support of the Restoration of Israel
  • Igniting the Joseph-Daniel Marketplace Leadership Calling
  • Mentoring the Next Generation of Entrepreneurial Leaders
  • Empowering Ambassadors of Hope and Healing to the Poor and Needy.

While we consider what we do as mission ambassadors and a Kingdom School of Business to be strategic, in reality our efforts goes far beyond what we are doing. Rather it is 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 training, speaking engagements, counsel, workshops, seminars, publishing and mentoring a range of leaders. 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 ministries such as a private school, orphanages and the spiritual mentoring of young entrepreneurs, as well as ventures designed to support such ministries.
