Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To inspire generations of leaders who listen to God, follow Jesus rhythms of life and lead from the overflow.

We train communities of leaders in retreat settings and in their organizational environments.
We mentor organizational leaders and provide training for their leadership teams.
We teach courses in academic and conference settings.
We write books, articles and resources.

The Leadership Institute was founded in 1989 in response to the desperate need for a new generation of Christian leaders with deeper spirituality, integrity and compassion. Without the development of such leaders the church will be unable to impact future generations with the gospel.

The Institute has developed a new paradigm of leadership development based in spiritual formation. It has been effectively implemented with hundreds of seminarians and Christian leaders who have completed training spanning ten weeks to two years.

The Institute is inter-denominational and national in scope, working in partnership with denominations, churches, parachurch organizations and seminaries, including Fuller Theological Seminary and Talbot School of Theology.

We have successfully trained over 500 leaders from every walk of life. Most report a renewed sense of mission and calling with our impact surveys revealing dramatic lifestyle changes that persist for a lifetime.
