Our nation is in crisis.
What can citizens of faith do?
The ethics, values, and character of our nation's soul are in dire straits. We need leaders in every area of American life who will not retreat into apathy or cowardice, but will take hold of their responsibility to God, responsibility to others, and willingness to sacrifice for the well-being of others.
How can the Center for Leadership help accomplish such a monumental task?
The University of Mobile Center for Leadership exists to help citizens of faith maximize their influence by providing informative communications, credible resources, and proactive solutions to revitalize Christian faith and character in America.
We don’t simply talk about the problems of America. Instead, we collaborate with citizens of faith to offer viable solutions, especially around issues related to faith, education, patriotism, freedom, morality, and the culture at large.
The Center for Leadership is looking for citizens of faith who are compelled to be God’s change agents for the spiritual and cultural transformation of our nation, accomplished from the community to the Capitol.
Get Involved Here!
The Center for Leadership is motivated through the vision of the Twelve23 Movement, which seeks to openly and intentionally “change the character and condition” of America by strengthening Christian faith and character in all areas of public and private life.
The Twelve23 Movement gets its named from the following two stories of faith and hope:
1. The Story of an American Hero On December 23, 1944, during World War II, an entire American armored division was retreating from the German army in the Ardennes forest when a sergeant in a U.S. tank destroyer spotted an American soldier digging a foxhole. The soldier, a private named Martin of the 325th Glider Infantry Regiment, looked up and asked, "Are you men looking for a safe place?" "Yes," answered the sergeant. "Well buddy," private Martin drawled, "just pull your vehicle behind me. I'm the 82nd Airborne, and this is as far as the (enemy) is going."
The United States won the battle that Private Martin fought so valiantly in that day, leading to the defeat of Hitler and the Nazis. If not for heroes like Private Martin, the world would remain without the freedoms that we hold so dear today.
The Twelve23 Movement finds inspiration from this private and the date serves as a rally cry for individuals in our nation to draw the line, get entrenched, refuse to retreat, and lead our nation toward its God-given potential.

2. The Story of a Global Savior: In John 12:23 of the Holy Bible, Jesus said, "The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified." Christians across our land have been too silent about the transforming message of Jesus Christ. The time has come for us to glorify God by putting Him first in everything that we do as individuals and as a nation.
The Twelve23 Movement is the mindset that inspires the Center for Leadership, and ultimately, the spiritual and cultural restoration of the nation.
Come and join with thousands of others with the Twelve23 attitude – people who believe that God’s healing is the primary solution to America's crisis of character.
Together, we will humble ourselves in prayer, seek God’s face, repent of our sin, and experience God’s healing in our lives and in our nation!
