Leadership Foundations Class

To Be Announced

Faculty: Andy Breckwoldt; Chris Hairel; Tony Mayer
Next Class — TBA

St. John the Divine has a leadership initiative with the vision to raise up generations of Christian servant leaders to transform our community, city, and the world. We believe that leadership is about influence. And Everyone has Influence, whether in your work, family, school, church, or ministry.

  • Are you seeking to improve your leadership capability at your office, at your home, in the community, or at church?
  • Do you wonder how to build on your strengths?
  • What is the best way to work with other people?
  • How did Jesus lead his disciples, his followers, and the movement which bears his name?

The objective of the Leadership Foundations Course is to develop participants’ leadership capabilities with Jesus as the model. We welcome leaders from all backgrounds and spheres of society. Whether leading a small team or a large organization, this program has been designed for those who are in leadership roles and want to increase their capacity, capabilities, and effectiveness to impact the world around them.

The course will be delivered through a virtual program including a mix of live lectures and group engagements online. You will have the opportunity in this course to work on the challenges you face today in your leadership role – regardless of what type of role that may be (business, church/ministry, education, or other). If you have a sense of calling to grow and become more influential in your sphere, while living out the principles of your Christian faith, this program is for you.


It is expected that participants will:

  • Attend 7 of the 10 live virtual sessions. Lectures will be available online after the sessions to make for any missed.
  • Complete the homework assignments, as these assignments will form the basis of discussions and working sessions the next week.
