Titus Foundation is a nonprofit organization that trains and develops urban youth leaders to better disciple and equip the next generation.
Our Gospel-focused programming rooted in Christian worldview is designed to build grounded and strong leaders while helping them develop a shared vision of effectively addressing the needs in their community that directly impact youth.
Churches across Arizona and the nation are seeing an unprecedented decline in weekly attendance—especially among younger generations. Often, leaders experience depression, fatigue, and burnout. These trends are even worse with young leaders doing ministry in urban communities. We are dedicated to changing this.
What sets Titus Foundation apart is that we focus on young urban leaders to help spark and drive long-lasting change. We see young people as urban churches and communities' most significant mission resource.
Titus began by providing leadership development and Christian worldview training to emerging urban leaders. It has expanded into a community of youth leaders, senior pastors, organizations, and individuals, collaborating to reach a generation and building a state-wide advocacy movement for youth discipleship.
Titus Foundation derives its name from the book of Titus in the New Testament, which refers to God's Story's redemptive and restorative power for character formation, moral excellence, and being ready for every good work!
Ushering in the next generation includes the Church's intentional plan to receive and disciple the emerging Hispanic culture. I thank God for the Titus Foundation, encouraging us to lead and equip the next generation.

Partnering with Titus has allowed me to meet young leaders who want to be equipped to share the Gospel with young people in urban areas of our city. Let's not leave them behind!

We want to partner with you!
To train and develop urban youth leaders to better
disciple and equip the next generation.
We envision a growing and thriving urban church because young people live out the Gospel, reach out to their peers, and empower transformation in every neighborhood in the city.
One generation will praise Your works to another,
and will declare your mighty acts.
Our Church's attendance has increased by 35% after partnering with Titus to reach children and youth in our community.

Some moments shape the destiny of a city!
Nine years ago, a group of passionate youth pastors from the city decided to hold "a prayer walk" in downtown Phoenix to pray for the city. More than 1,800 young people attended the event. Youth pastors and leaders were moved and inspired!
It was that memory of young leaders, their students, and parents praying together that, in part, prompted the idea of developing a practical training program for youth workers. The plan was simple, equip and empower every urban youth leader and pastor with the knowledge and confidence to share God's extraordinary story with their students and help them find their place in that story.
And so, in 2019, the Titus Foundation was born, created to equip and empower young urban leaders, pastors, and parents to ensure they have the tools, training, and resources they need to help them accomplish their mission.
