Funded by the Lilly Endowment, The Academy of Church Leadership at North Park University is dedicated to equipping religious leaders with the skills needed for effective congregational growth. Programs focus on professional development in finance, management, and leadership for religious leaders.
Why Study Church Leadership?
Being a pastor or church leader is more demanding than ever, and includes far more than spiritual leadership. The Academy helps you develop the skills necessary to ensure the continued health and growth of your church.
Church Leadership Retreat
As church leaders we often struggle to address biblical and pastoral concerns, as well as financial, logistical, and operational needs. Our retreat will help you bridge that gap. We offer a comprehensive and intensive three-day retreat that includes resources and education on everything from conflict resolution to accounting.
