If you’re passionate about learning to lead from a position of deep interior development, leading through the exterior practices of loving your neighbor and participating in the grand narrative of God’s global mission, this is the program for you. Taught by long-time pastors and Christian leaders, our curriculum focuses on the soul development of the leader, resulting in a deeply formed leader skilled to live and serve in the digital age. During our studies, three words—virtue, character, ethics—will be imprinted on your mind and heart.
At Capital Seminary & Graduate School, we believe in teaching leadership that prepares the leader’s interior soul while simultaneously participating in God’s global mission. To accomplish this undivided formation in leaders, the Master of Arts in Formational Leadership is designed as a closed cohort that allows students and faculty to develop deep relationships throughout the program. The program provides a unique blend of online education and residency experiences throughout a 20-month, 10-class cohort model. Online courses enable students to stay fully engaged in their local ministries while studying with students and leaders from around the world. Three unique residency experiences scheduled during the 20-month program allow students to grow together as they learn through unique, life-changing experiences. These residencies include studying the art of personal soul care and heritage development at a ranch in Eugene, Oregon, being exposed to the global village through studying and serving on an international trip, then ending your 20-month experience by studying sustainable rhythms for life and ministry in Eugene.
Cohort-based program allows you to learn in a close-knit community.
Three in-person residency experiences with your cohort in Eugene, OR and an international trip to Israel.
