How will Fletcher’s Certificate in Christian Leadership benefit students?

“More than ever, Christian leaders are needed to share the love and grace of God with the world. In times when there is more concern about the number of followers someone has or if a video goes viral, Christian Leadership is imperative.

As a participant in the Certificate in Christian Leadership program you will meet instructors who have practical real-world experience and expertise in what it means to lead in changing times. Regardless of your ministry context, our instructors will assist you in recognizing your strengths, provide you with real world examples, introduce you to people who are currently serving in varied ministry contexts, and assist you with communicating God to all you meet.

Ultimately, we want you to complete your studies in Christian leadership equipped to do the work, encouraged for your journey, and ready to engage your identified community. You are today’s leaders. Let us prepare you for the days and years ahead as God continues to use you to be the difference in a rapidly changing world. Love God, love others, change the world!”
