Master of Arts in Leadership and Administration

‚ÄúRemember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.‚ÄĚ (Hebrews 13:7, NIV)

The future¬ transformation¬†of Haiti inevitably¬†requires¬ a new generation of¬ men and women¬†who are able to move faith-based organizations¬†into the future. To that end, the Master of Arts in Leadership and Administration¬ (MALA)¬ prepares¬†persons to serve as¬ leaders¬ who exhibit the Christ-like leadership required in an increasingly complex and changing cultural context and equips them to¬†assume leadership positions in churches, Christian schools and colleges, mission¬†organizations and¬†community¬†organizations.¬ In addition, the MALA provides an opportunity for those who are currently in service to enhance their leadership skills.¬
