The Department of Emerging Leadership is built on the biblical conviction that God’s love and faithfulness endures through and to all generations. Consequently, there are few life investments the missional disciple of Jesus can make that are more important than investing in the lives of the emerging generation. Graduates of the Department of Emerging Leadership will learn to take the commission to make disciples of all peoples into specific contexts, focusing on the cultures of urban youth and collegiate students.
Most global societies are increasingly urban, young, and more educated. Furthermore, the future leadership of all global societies, from their families to their governments, lies in the hands of that youth. Consequently, the Department of Emerging Leadership is driven by the desire to make disciples of the next generations of leaders and by the dream of seeing transformed lives, families, and societies. Graduates will be prepared to missionally engage youth and college students faithfully and fruitfully in multiple cultural contexts.
