WE DEVELOP LEADERS FOR LIFE
We not only believe in education but transformation. This innovative, ten-month experience will teach you the basics of Christian theology, identify your gifts and strengths, develop strategies for personal growth and give you practical ministry experience in a thriving church community.
Rhythms for Growth
Our weekly rhythm maximises both learning and application. By intentionalising each day, Students experience a full measure of growth and are able to apply quickly what they are being taught.
Students structure each week around a day of study and self reflection, a day of practical and hands-on work, and finally a day of ministry at a weekend gathering.
Learn the art of effective leadership through 60+ hours of Leadership Development Seminars. Our curriculum is tailor-made and design to equip Students with the competencies to progress personally, professionally and in faith contexts.
Our innovative curriculum is delivered by our Coaches in various formats including lecture style, group discussion, self-reflection and personal presentation. It is purposefully designed to engage students and involve them as much possible in the learning process, including their immersion in practical environments.
TODAY’S COMMUNITY CHURCH
MEET OUR COACHES
Our dedicated team of coaches teach the curriculum throughout the year. They are highly relational and practitioners of both the vision and values they bring.
READ OUR ONLINE PROSPECTUS
Leaders don’t just talk about the future, they create it. Practical Day allows students to work hands-on in a ministry of their choice and apply what they are learning directly into the local church.
From kids work to business and finance, community to live production, why not read our online prospectus for more details?
Building Church Academy
It’s official; we are joining forces with Building Church Academy to deliver the most holistic ministry training we’ve ever designed. Founded by Stephen Matthew (see “Meet the Coaches”), BCA helps individuals grow and become skilful church builders.
Students will be auto-enrolled onto BCA when registering for Leadership College and will benefit from the teaching of the best church leaders from across the U.K.
DESIGN YOUR FUTURE
GROWTH AND UNDERSTANDING
Leadership College helped me grow in preparation for my next step in life and gave me a better understanding of the business world.
BALANCE AND DRIVE
I learned new skills including how to live a balanced life and manage projects well. I now feel a drive to be the hands and feet of God.
DISCOVER AND DEVELOP
This was a year where I matured and discovered my career path. If you want an experience that challenges you to think bigger and develop your relationship with God, this is for you.
CHALLENGE AND DEPTH
My experience of Leadership College stretched my thinking and I was challenged to go deeper and wider with my faith in God.
HOSTED AT THE EDGE CAMPUS
Experiencing different cultures not only broadens the mind but it also creates an opportunity to invest in contexts you never thought possible. During the overseas travel, students will meet like-minded leaders, work hands-on in local communities and share about the UK culture.
Students will be exposed to the influence and strategies of local churches in mainland Europe. A valid passport is required.
The Hike is a three day experience where students walk and relax, self reflect and share stories, do listening exercises and study the Bible. The aim of this time in the countryside of the UK is to reflect on their experience on Leadership College and plan toward what is next for them.
This unique experience creates a powerful stake in the ground so that Students can reorientate their future years around God’s purposes for them. The Hike features in the third term and we cater for all levels of ability so that no-one misses out.
LAY A STRONG FOUNDATION
