Leadership and enrichment

Are you a person of faith in some kind of leadership role? Do you ever wish for opportunities to reflect personally, spiritually and theologically on leadership?

Leading with an Anabaptist lens

Through our programs for personal enrichment and leadership development, people with or without formal theological education have many opportunities to deepen their roots in Scripture and gain greater understanding of what an Anabaptist lens offers for today’s leadership challenges.

Whether you are a leader within or beyond the church, we invite you to join friends from around the globe who share your passion for biblically grounded, wise leadership practices.
