Learning to Lead Like Christ
If you’ve been serving as a leader in ministry for any length of time, you know that it can be challenging. And leaders like you need to know how to manage conflict in redemptive ways, lead change processes effectively, respond to various situations with an appropriate leadership style, manage and administer organizational systems and processes and serve followers with integrity.
At Capital Seminary & Graduate School, our leadership studies program marries leadership theory with real-life ministry practice, while setting all learning with a biblical and theological framework. The program also places a strong emphasis on the spiritual formation of the leader. As a result, the program develops leaders who possess the competencies expected of those leading in church, para-church and non-profit organizations, as well as creating a depth of character that followers can trust.
The program is delivered online and in a blended/accelerated model that allows life-engaged adult learners to complete an advanced degree without uprooting life at home and work. A typical course is 8 weeks in length.
“Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.” – Jeremiah 3:15

“I chose Capital because it was accessible, affordable, practical and theologically solid. It was a balanced, comprehensive program that fit my life. I was also learning things that I was able to apply immediately. I came out of the class on The Life & Work of the Leader and taught it to my elders within a week!”
