Thriving communities need vibrant Christian institutions, and both need excellent Christ-shaped leadership.
Leadership Education at Duke Divinity aims to create lasting change by strengthening the ecology of Christian institutions that enable U.S. congregations and pastors to flourish.
Leadership Education at Duke Divinity participates in the cultivation of thriving communities that are signs, foretastes and instruments of the reign of God. We address a yearning for greater strength and vitality among Christian institutions and for greater faithfulness and effectiveness in the leadership and management of those institutions.
We aim to create lasting change by strengthening the ecology of Christian institutions that enable U.S. congregations and pastors to flourish. We work with those institutions whose mission is the formation of Christians and who have the strength to have scalable impact: denominations, seminaries, church-related colleges, consultancies, large membership congregations, Christian non-profit organizations and others.
We work in North Carolina and across the country, with current and future leaders, using expertise from disciplines as varied as theology, business, sociology and the arts
