Founded By 12Stone Church

The John C. Maxwell Leadership Center at 12Stone Church honors the life and impact of John’s global and generational leadership legacy.

With generous support from the Wesleyan Investment Foundation and the Williams Family Foundation, 12Stone invited John to accept the gift of this leadership center. Unbeknownst to 12Stone, many years ago God had put a vision upon John Maxwell for such a center. So God’s providence in John mentoring Senior Pastor Kevin Myers and connection to the Wesleyan Church made this a supernatural partnership.

12Stone is called to reach the Lost, serve the Least & raise up Leaders.

To that end, 12Stone has committed to pour into next generation leaders as a primary means to advance the Kingdom of God through the local church.
