Student Focused Program
The need for effective leadership in our world has, perhaps, never been greater. To meet this need and serve the next generation of emerging leaders, the Center for Global Leadership (CGL) has developed a unique program for sustained transformational leadership development: PBA Lead. This three-course academic program is designed to cultivate exceptional student leaders ready to meet the challenge of leading differently.
Emphasizing biblical principles that help students lead with character and competence, PBA Lead offers an opportunity for students to develop a leadership strategy that follows the greatest leader, Jesus. The program is grounded in both contemporary leadership practices and biblical principles, inspiring students to first lead themselves before leading others. Building on this foundation, the program helps students identify their leadership strengths, passions, and personality and apply their learning to leadership opportunities on campus and in the community.
