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.
Like most of today’s college students, Jaemi leads a busy life. Balancing family, work, and serving at her local church is a tough act, but she sensed the need to sharpen her leadership for effective Kingdom impact.
“My favorite part of being a student at Manna U has the been the challenge and opportunity to grow not just as a leader but also as a Christ-follower.”
Jesus chose twelve leaders who were from differing backgrounds. Many religious leaders in that time would have overlooked them. Through teaching and training, He prepared them to lead a movement that changed the world. Whatever your call may be, training at Manna U can help you engage in this kind of transformational leadership.
