St. Andrew's Leadership Institute

Visit Website

The St. Andrew's Leadership Institute is a 9-month intensive leadership and mentoring experience for recent college and seminary 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 equips the next generation of leaders while providing the opportunity for the St. Andrew's Church community to grow as disciples by participating in the making of disciples. The Leadership Institute includes the opportunity for recent college and seminary graduates to live and serve as a part of our church family and local community.

The Leadership Institute Associate 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 Church (Ministry Track). The purpose is for Associates' professional development.

Live: Each Associate will experience life in the context of community with their fellows Associates and their St. Andrew's Church family. Many Associates will live in homes with host families. The purpose is for Associates to experience intentional Christ-centered community.

Learn: Associates will be engaged in a learning community with fellow Associates, participating in a variety of experiences and curriculum. The purpose is for Associates' personal and spiritual formation.

Approximately half of the Leadership Institute Associates will be trained to serve in God's kingdom through a profession in the marketplace and the others will be equipped for vocational ministry in the Church. Each Associate will meet weekly with a personal mentor, will be deeply embedded within the ministry of the church, and engaged in an intentional leadership training program while serving and growing in a profession or ministry setting.

The program includes:

  • Weekly meetings for fellowship and mutual encouragement

  • Weekly opportunities for teaching, training and leadership development

  • Field trips in and around Southern California to engage with industry and civic leaders, businesses and organizations

  • Participation in retreats and conferences

  • Weekly mentoring relationships

  • Active participation in the life of St. Andrew's Church and its ministries
