Reach the Next Level

Next Level Nonprofit is an easy-to-implement, practical, and proven system to do more good by operating at the highest levels of organizational excellence.

Your organization is focused on serving people outwardly, but you don’t allocate enough time, talent, and energy on your internal systems that will ensure greater impact. As a result, you are unable to serve your community at the level you want to.

“Just 10 years ago I was burned out, because the nonprofit I led had not become what I envisioned…

I knew we were capable of reaching far more people, but I was frustrated it wasn’t happening. We needed a stronger team to lead us into a more impactful future, but it felt impossible to attract, retain, and develop top talent.”

-Chris Lambert, Founder/CEO of Life Remodeled & author of Next Level Nonprofit

That all changed when we created an operating system that helped our organization build a dream team and increase lasting impact.

I’ve written a book called Next Level Nonprofit, and it shares our story of failures and successes while providing a step-by-step guide to achieve operational excellence.

Next Level Nonprofit provides a lens—and a toolkit— to help the beleaguered nonprofit leader regain some sanity. I found this book convicting, inspiring, and turbo-charging all at once.

Experience
Next Level Nonprofit
1-year coaching

Your team can certainly self-implement our system, and my book will show you exactly how to do it. However, for those who want to go much further faster, you will want to hire a Next Level Nonprofit Coach. The average cost for the services we offer is $50k – $75k for the first year. However, we provide our program to nonprofits for only $20k for the first year and $15k per additional year, because we are so passionate about providing access and transforming the landscape of the nonprofit sector.

About the Author

Dr. Chris Lambert is the founder and CEO of Life Remodeled, award-winning author of Next Level Nonprofit, and founder of the Next Level Nonprofit organizational operating system. It’s not the career trajectory Chris envisioned when he studied marketing at Indiana University, planned for law school, or dreamed of a lucrative career as a real estate developer. But a new call took shape after a spiritual awakening during his junior year of college, and Chris went on to earn his MDiv and doctorate in preaching from Fuller and Gordon-Conwell seminaries, respectively. Moving to Liberia, Chris and his wife helped a village mobilize support to drill a well, acquire farm animals, and construct their very first school building. Upon returning to the U.S., Chris founded a church called Ekklesia. In 2010 he launched Life Remodeled, which repurposes vacant school buildings into one-stop hubs of opportunity and helps create neighborhood revitalization that lasts.

From recognition on the TEDx stage to lists like Crain’s 40 Under 40, Building Design + Construction 40 Under 40, and SMART BUSINESS Dealmaker of the Year, Chris’s reputation precedes him. But it’s the journey ahead—and the people who are helping to lead the way—that excites him most.
