Become an Advocate for the Soul
LTI directly facilitates the spiritual formation, discernment and renewal of leaders and teams serving local congregations and parachurch ministries nationwide. Our primary program offerings provide training in spiritual leadership development – in spiritual direction, formational leadership, and disciple-building. In addition, we provide in-person and online offerings: soul care retreats, workshops, and leadership training covering a vast array of topics. The Discerning Leader podcast, Church and Team Health Assessment Tools, and our online store provide incredibly helpful resources.
We need your partnership now more than ever. The demands for our services continue to increase. As our ministry, team, and budget grow, so does the need for financial partners. We’re looking to increase our monthly and annual vision partners – will you join the team? We look forward to how the Lord invites you to support LTI prayerfully and financially. Please let us know how we can serve you too.
To God alone belongs all the glory, honor and praise, and to you I offer heartfelt thanks,
Stephen A. Macchia, D. Min.
Founder and President
Ways to Give

Here’s why donating stocks and other securities is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give:
A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time – is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. This method of giving has become increasingly popular in recent years because of two key advantages:
- Any long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (meaning they were purchased over a year ago, and have a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to a public charity and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities – up to 30% of the donor’s adjusted gross income.
- Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings will be.
