Driven by the Great Commission, EQUIP Leadership Inc.®, is a non-profit, global leadership development organization founded by John C. Maxwell and committed to radically changing the leadership landscape. They operate with the firm conviction that the highest privilege and responsibility of any leader is to train other leaders.

Beginning March 4, 2013, Dr. John Hull began the EQUIP World Relay that will last over 100 days and travel 2,400 miles beginning in Atlanta, Ga., to Guatemala City, Guatemala with a ‘Big Why’ of seeing the nation of Guatemala transformed.


EQUIP® has launched the world’s largest relay, joining together and empowering millions of leaders for global transformation. The time is now to do something bold – and to make a difference.

Dr. John C. Maxwell launched EQUIP in 1997.  The organization’s heartbeat then and now is to raise up, train and resource transformational Christian leaders.  In 2013, our focus will be on Guatemala.

EQUIP wants to see countries, like Guatemala, transformed one community at a time.  That can happen only if there are leaders who are transformed in their lives and influence.

EQUIP is extending an invitation for leaders everywhere to join them on this movement of transformation …  to see leadership corruption, poverty, illiteracy, hunger, human slavery and other social issues addressed and show the power of unity and multiplied efforts of good servant leadership.
