Arrow Leadership Cohort


Partnering with Arrow

For over 20 years, Arrow Leadership has focused on making a deep investment in a few Christian leaders for the sake of the many. Through a highly personalized, intentional and transformational approach, the Arrow Leadership Program seeks to cultivate call, character and competency in the lives of proven ministry leaders. This 18-month journey in community includes intensive feedback process, modular learning, mentoring, and peer networking.

Citing the crucial need for leaders who are able to think critically and act creatively to embody and communicate the gospel in our contemporary world, former Wheaton College President Dr. Duane Litfin says, "The partnership of Wheaton College with Arrow Leadership in this effort is a natural. Our goal is to work together to create a synergy in generating evangelistically-oriented leaders that neither organization working alone could achieve." This partnership is designed to connect proven leaders in evangelism from the Arrow Leadership Program with Wheaton Graduate School's Master of Arts in Evangelism and Leadership. As Arrow Leadership's President Dr. Carson Pue comments, "By combining Arrow's focus on developing ministry leaders who are led more by Jesus, who lead more like Jesus and who lead more to Jesus with Wheaton's strong combination of academic excellence, gifted faculty-practitioners and outstanding reputation, I believe leaders passionate about effective evangelism will benefit greatly and I believe the Kingdom will benefit with evangelism champions at the helm of local churches and ministries."
