Church Leadership Education Programs

The The Church Leadership Center offers two leadership education programs for pastors and others involved in ministries of the church who are not yet prepared for graduate-level seminary studies.

Grounded in Anabaptist-Mennonite theology, these programs serve working adults who primarily remain in their home communities throughout the three-year duration of study. While the formats for these programs vary, they share a curriculum in common.This shared curriculum is designed for the early college level, but does not involve academic credit.
