Development

The Academy stands as a self-supporting, faith-based non-profit. All funding for the Academy comes from the generosity of individuals, foundations, and businesses who feel led to support this work.

The work of the Academy requires bold vision and investment as we are directed in scripture through the Parable of the Talents. In this parable, Jesus reminds us that one of the greatest joys in being a Christian is to multiply the gifts entrusted to us by God and to invest them wisely and generously for the work of the His kingdom. In the spirit of this parable, we hope you will consider joining us as an investor in our work.

Investing in the Academy for Leadership Excellence is not about investing in individuals. It is about investing in the future of God’s kingdom. It is about investing in generations of faith. Your gift has the power not only to transform individual leaders, but it has the greater power to impact faith communities and ultimately, God’s kingdom here on earth. Thank you!
