|Date:||Monday, August 25, 2014 Saturday, August 30, 2014|
Leadership Education in Anabaptist Perspective (LEAP) is a required week-long hybrid course that orients students to theological studies, the nature of missional leadership, the formation of the learning community, opportunities for personal assessment, and exploration of sustaining spiritual practices.
Students create a formation portfolio to lodge various assessments of their academic progress and ministerial competency during their seminary studies. Assignments in the course prepare students to petition for formal admission into the MDiv program after they have completed twelve credit hours. LEAP faculty leaders complete an assessment evaluating the student’s demonstrated readiness to enter the MDiv program as part of the petition process.
