I would definitely recommend Leadership College to anyone! It’s one of the best choices I made in my life and I know if anyone else are to make that choice, it will be one of their best choices too!

What is Hope Leadership College? 

Hope Leadership College is an intensive, one-year program. It includes lectures on Biblical studies and leadership subjects as well as practical and hands-on training experience. Hope Leadership College also helps students to discover their unique purpose and calling in life.

By the end of the year, students will have grown in their relationship with God, character, leadership, theology and people skills. Our Hope Leadership College certificate confirms that students have been trained in practical ministry and servant leadership at Hope Church George.

Let Hope Leadership College prepare you for your unique destiny.

At Hope Leadership College our mission is to raise and equip once-in-a-generation type leaders. But who is to to say that these leaders have to be the ones leading in churches? A leader could be an artist, a business person, a lawyer, a politician, a stay-at-home parent, a social worker, a teacher, etc.

A typical week at a glance:

The program runs from Tuesday to Friday and a full day and evening on Sundays. Although our college hours are from 9am to 5pm, there are many instances where students may be required to arrive early or leave late. Students serve in different areas of church life such as Kids Church, Youth, Schools Ministry, creative areas, hospitality, events and more. They also attend lectures and Bible Studies and serve wherever they are needed.

Holidays or breaks:

Our program is divided up into four terms, and students receive a one week break at the end of each term to refresh and get ready for the following term.

What’s next after the year?

God takes students on an incredible journey throughout the year and often reveals their next season when the time is right. We take time to pray and chat with each student about this. Many students go on to study elsewhere or work and do what God has called them to after completing our Leadership College. Some students continue towards an accredited certificate in Practical Theology while volunteering in different capacities at Hope Church.
