Graduate Organizational Leadership Program

Integrate your education with your professional passion.  We’ve carefully curated our graduate program to engage the range of soft skills (personal leadership, mission-driven leadership, strategic thinking and team development) and hard skills (governance, finance, risk management) that are the fabric of organizational leadership in any context.  The program is designed to develop measurable competency in each skill set.  Using our proprietary experience-based framework approach, we custom-blend each student’s learning inputs, processing challenges and project-oriented deliverables to leverage their professional role as the primary learning context… and beneficiary.  The learning process intentionally engages the student’s work role, providing deeper focus rather than becoming a competitive distraction.

Undergraduate Programs

Earn your ministry degree from an accredited school and jump-start your ministry career while serving on the front lines of ministry. Our experience-based educational programs are designed for delivery within within a 9-month to 1-year internship. Real ministry. Real experience. Real learning. Our undergraduate programs consist of up to 36 credit hours of practical ministry courses crafted for delivery in an applied ministry context. Each program begins with an 18-credit ministry core, then builds upon that with a 12-credit or 15-credit discipline-specific course block and finishes with 3 or 6 credits of cross-discipline electives. From the broad course design down to each learning objective in each course, the learning process is constructed to deliver practical, measurable ministry competencies in each student.
