Natasha has joined a diverse group of leading voices for resourcing and igniting conversations among theological practitioners in the areas of culture, formation, theology, and witness.


Leadership LINKS, Inc. is a growing faith-based, charitable, and educational organization. Founded and led by veterans, Leadership LINKS, Inc. enriches communities through leadership, mentoring, and education. The purpose of Leadership LINKS is to educate and equip servant leaders who are committed to using their skills and resources for the greater good of humanity.

Our vision is to connect people with purpose, and we accomplish this vision by offering leadership education that facilitates impactful living, character and spiritual development. The LINKS reflect our core values of Love, Inspiration, Network, Knowledge, and Service—all of which are integral to our community and organizational strength

The founding board members of Leadership LINKS partnered with SHABACHI! Ministries, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization of First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Prince George County, Maryland, as they hosted their first leadership summer program for 7th through 10th grade girls. The founding board members of Leadership LINKS had the opportunity to outline and execute the program, in addition to creating the program’s curriculum. This pilot program has become the foundation for Leadership LINKS, Inc. to build future programming and community offerings. With a unique curriculum surrounding the program’s theme, “Walk in Purpose, Unlock the Leader Within,” future leaders were able to learn about leadership through the organization’s core values of Love, Inspiration, Network, Knowledge, and Service. Participants also had the opportunity to practice leadership skills like casting a vision, organizing a business, team building, professional appearance, and public speaking. Additionally, participants learned about holistic self-care through eating well, proper hydration, skin care, purity, and physical exercise regarding First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. Finally, future leaders were exposed to career fields like business and entrepreneurship, military and government, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), and global justice.  

Through this opportunity, Natasha joined a community of global leaders with the commitment to: Refresh Your Spirit, Renew Your Mind, and Expand Your Christian Community. In addition to hearing from a diverse community of national and global theologians and practitioners, Natasha participated in the Segregated Sundays: Why the Most Diverse Nation on Earth Still Has the Most Racially-Segregated Worship seminar led by Dr. Valerie Cooper.   

Through the hope and power of Christ and through the influence of positive relationships, Hope Academy educates, encourages, and equips middle school students in order to transform their futures.

AbolitionNC actively participates in the prevention of human trafficking and the restoration of survivors through community education, resources, collaboration, and prayer. AbolitionNC accomplishes its mission by providing comfort, proclaiming freedom, and serving in love.

Natasha signed contract with HarperCollins/Zondervan for the publication of her first book about mentoring from the perspective of intentional discipleship.

Natasha joined a team of community leaders, advocates, and organizers to provide education and to support the global justice work of the International Justice Mission (IJM). IJM exists to “Rescue Thousands. Protect Millions. Prove That Justice for the Poor is Possible.” IJM does this work by restraining the hand of violence against those living in extreme poverty across the world.

Natasha joins the Redbud Writer’s Guild, a group of women writers who fearlessly expand the feminine voice in our churches, communities, and culture. Redbuds envision a vibrant and diverse movement of women who—in community—create and influence culture and faith. Redbuds hold to the values of: Faith (as a community of Christ-following women), Women (sharing the feminine perspective of the world and empowering women to use their voices and recognize their influence), Safety (a spirit of non-competition), Collective (celebrate and respect our unity amidst our diversity), and Covenant (respect each other’s differences and never represent Redbud in a way that might be harmful to another member).
