Who We Serve

The Christian Leadership Center provides a forum for academicians and field practitioners to collaaborate and process theological thoughts that shapes the Seventh-day Adventist church’s understandings of leadership, in an effort to clarify, and integrate transformational leadership development across cultures. The biblically based model of servant leadership promoted by the Christian Leadership Center grows from that reflection.

The Christian Leadership Center is also involved in service:
• To specific church entities on-going leadership development
• For coaching or mentoring relationships for individuals
• To any organizations seeking to apply the principles of Christ to their mission.
