Faith-Based Leader Program

Juniors may participate in the University's Faith-Based Leader Program to explore the challenges and opportunities facing leaders in the Church and in other faith-based organizations.  Students are paired with a mentor, and they intern as an executive assistant for a senior leader in the Church or another faith-based organization to experience the reality of its day-to-day operations while, at the same time, discerning how God may be calling them to use their gifts and talents.
