Many leaders of faith-based institutions recognize the need to supplement their seminary or religious training with the skills needed for effective 21st-century organizational leadership. Designed specifically for such leaders, this residential executive education program offers the opportunity to learn cutting-edge theory and how to apply it in practice, including leadership, strategy, volunteer management, team building, leading change and decision making.
Combining the strengths of Kellogg’s world-renowned faculty experts with the experience of leading faith-based practitioners, this four-day program provides a unique, hands-on educational experience. Here, leaders of faith-based institutions can connect with each other, form relationships that span denominational, geographic, and ethnic boundaries, and work collaboratively toward solutions to their common challenges.
This program will be held at the James. L. Allen Center in Evanston, IL

“Faith & Leadership Week was an inspiring, motivating, and reflective experience filled with the kind of wisdom and warmth not usually associated with a business school environment. The faculty were knowledgeable and felt very real to me--not only teachers but practitioners. This first experience has led me to seriously explore more training opportunities with Kellogg.”
Pastor, Harvest Community Church
“The Faith and Leadership program was the most valuable leadership training that I have taken because the information was applicable to a congregational setting, grounded in research, and taught by professors who have experience in leading congregations. Anyone who serves in a leadership position within a congregation would benefit from the knowledge itself and exercises that help us to apply [it] in our own communities.”
Rabbi, Temple Beth Haverim Shir Shalom
“The Leadership aspect of the program was so informative, relevant, and clearly had been planned with great thought & attention. The Faith component added a dimension I had underestimated before arriving. There was a uniquely special energy that was imbued in everything we did. I loved being with a group of people (fellow students & professional staff) that "got me". Exploring the nuances among faith orientations was fascinating! And it is no surprise that we are more similar than not. In addition to the plethora of skills I hope to employ, I also discovered pieces of my personality that have a huge impact on my leadership style and success.”
