Transformational Spiritual Leadership Begins Here

Effective leadership, in ministry and society, does not have to be a complicated process. You want to glorify God as you follow Christ and lead others to do the same. But where do you start? You look to God’s Word and the history of the church to elevate your understanding of spiritual formation.

Explore the biblical foundations of spiritual formation. Examine leadership, personal development, communication, and more from a Christian worldview. Experience the impact of disciples making disciples across generational and cultural divides.

Then, bring your in-class studies to life through Impact 360’s residential leadership program. Become a transformational leader in church and society through a Master of Arts in Leadership with a spiritual formation concentration, at NGU.

What Can I Do with a Concentration in Spiritual Formation?

A master’s in leadership with a concentration in spiritual formation prepares you for various roles. You can pursue a career as a spiritual counselor, nonprofit leader, or community organizer.

This degree emphasizes personal and ethical growth, making you a valuable asset in organizations that prioritize holistic leadership and personal development.
