Christian Leadership

Training students to be Biblically centered, spiritually sensitive, and technically capable of leading churches and ministries into growth.

Indiana Bible College has a long history of training tomorrow’s Apostolic leaders today. That is what we have done since 1981. This refocus is part of an intentional look into the future and an attempt to prayerfully consider how we can better serve the kingdom of God.

In the face of constant change and cultural pressures, the church needs leaders who can successfully navigate the challenges ahead. The Christian Leadership Major at Indiana Bible College trains students to be Biblically centered, spiritually sensitive, and technically capable of leading churches and ministries into future growth.

Whether serving as a lead pastor at a local congregation or in a support role, students who graduate with a Christian Leadership degree will be equipped to anticipate changes and think critically about the effects of their leadership decisions. Additionally, students will enhance their administrative skills and organizational knowledge while strengthening their ability to facilitate overall growth in Christian leadership communities.
