A New Type of Leader

We need evangelistic leaders who are change agents for the Church and society. We need churches that grow through conversion. Find out how you can become a cutting edge evangelistic leader and change agent for the church and world.

It can also be completed in as little as 4 summers, taking two weeks of courses (8 credits) each summer and then a combination of the following: internship, independent study, online, distance learning courses or intensive/modular classes during another time of the year.
