St. Andrews Leadership Institute
Newport Beach, California
The St. Andrew’s Leadership Institute is a 9-month intensive leadership experience for recent college graduates designed to equip, strengthen, and inspire young leaders in preparation for Kingdom partnering in the church and the world.
Based in Newport Beach, California, the St. Andrew’s Leadership Institute provides the opportunity to live and serve as a part of the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian church family and local community. In turn the church community takes part in the growth of these disciples.
The Leadership Institute Associates WORK, LIVE, LEARN.
Work: Each Associate is employed in a 32-hour paid position in a local business (Professions Track) or by St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (Ministry Track). The purpose is for the Associates’ professional development.
Live: Each Associate experiences life in the context of community with their fellow Associates and the church family. Many Associates live in homes with host families. The purpose is for Associates to experience intentional Christ-centered community.
Learn: Associates engage in a learning community with fellow Associates, participating in a variety of experiences and curriculum. The purpose is for the Associates’ personal and spiritual growth.
Approximately one-half of the Leadership Institute Associates are trained to serve in God’s kingdom through a profession in the marketplace. The others are equipped for vocational ministry in the church. Each Associate is engaged in an intentional leadership training program while serving and growing in a profession or ministry setting.
