Minor in Leadership
With a minor in Leadership, you can use your talents to impact your campus and your community. In the Leadership Program, you’ll experience a combination of classroom work and real-world applications as you develop the ability to lead and empower others. In addition, Evangel’s Leadership Fellows Program places students in situations to use their leadership abilities around the campus and community.
Evangel’s leadership program is designed to help aspiring leaders develop the following five key traits while embracing a Christ-centered worldview:
- Model the way
- Inspire a shared vision
- Challenge the process
- Enable others to act
- Encourage the heart
Curricular and co-curricular opportunities help all students explore ways by which to serve people. The program emphasizes developing leaders around their personal strengths using Gallup’s StrengthsFinder leadership development tool.
