Christian Leadership

This program equips students to learn and apply sound Biblical leadership training such as values, vision, planning, motivation, and organizational development to embrace, understand, and live as an effective Christian leader. This program of study is suited to the student who desires extensive training for the purpose of leadership in the local church, non-profit, or workplace. Students will learn to understand how to apply Christian and organizational leadership knowledge, theories, and skills within a global context. Through course content and experienced faculty, in both ministry and marketplace leadership roles, the student will be able to learn but also be coached through this process. We are all called to leadership in some way, but not all the same way. This program is designed to equip you for leadership to wherever God has called you!

  • Why should I choose Christian Leadership over the other majors?

    The way into the future for the human race is effective good leadership. This is a broader program for those in leadership in various contexts. The other majors are more specific. If you feel called to preaching and biblical studies, the divinity program may be a better fit. The same with the intercultural, worship, and counseling programs, they are concentrated to those areas. Christian Leadership can help in all those fields since all need and have leadership components, but the focus in this program is preparing effective Christian leaders, no matter the area or field they are called.
