About the course

Many leaders of faith-based institutions recognize the need to supplement their seminary or religious training with the skills needed for effective 21st-century organizational leadership. Designed specifically for such leaders, this residential executive education program offers the opportunity to learn cutting-edge theory and how to apply it in practice, including leadership, strategy, volunteer management, team building, leading change and decision making.
