Who Should Attend

Foundations of Christian Leadership benefits those who care about the church in the world and want to build skills to lead Christian institutions with joy and creativity.

Over the years, we have had lay and clergy leaders from a variety of faith-based organizations participate. Ideal applicants are those who have been in a leadership position in a Christian institution for fewer than five years. Typically, they are working on new projects or with an expanded scope of responsibility and seeking ways to sustain key activities over time.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

"IT HAS GIVEN ME A SENSE OF HOPE AND PURPOSE"

The idea of traditioned innovation — one of the core concepts of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity — particularly resonated with Sushama Austin-Connor, who took part in Foundations of Christian Leadership in 2013.
