Message from the Executive Director

The mission of North Greenville University is to glorify God by cultivating graduates who are equipped to serve as transformational leaders for church and society. This raises an important question: what do we mean by transformational leadership?

Leadership comes in many different forms. It might be evident in your job title, expounded in your job description, or implied by your place in an organizational chart. But many experts agree that, at the end of the day, leadership ultimately boils down to influence. Transformational leadership is about kingdom influence.

The Institute for Transformational Leadership is an interdisciplinary hub for equipping North Greenville students, faculty, staff, and friends for kingdom influence. We believe kingdom influencers cultivate a biblical worldview, pursue spiritual formation, engage in servant leadership, and offer public witness to the Lordship of Jesus Christ—regardless of their vocation. And they lead others around them to do the same.

The Institute cultivates transformational leaders through the Master of Arts in Leadership, which is offered in partnership with Impact 360 Institute in Pine Mountain, GA. Students in the MA in Leadership participate in the Residency Program at Impact 360 while earning a concentration in Servant Leadership or Spiritual Formation.

The Institute also equips members of the North Greenville community for kingdom influence through co-curricular initiatives such as Christian Worldview Week, the Faith and Culture Lecture Series, and other periodic events. You can learn more about these opportunities on the Institute’s main webpage.
