Let me invite you to join us on the ChristCentral School of Leadership for 2023-2024 starting this September. The course is based in Sheffield and participation is available both in-person and remotely online. We also work with training bases in other nations. See our international page to find out where.
About School of Leadership
This is a two year course for anyone who is called to some form of leadership in the church or in the wider world. The School of Leadership gives you a solid grounding in biblical theology, a deeper understanding of church history, time to consider leadership issues and an opportunity to grow in your personal calling. We combine quality teaching, interactive forums and shared learning in a relaxed environment.
Students can participate either in-person in Sheffield (where we comply with social distancing guidelines) or online using Zoom. We have used this ‘hybrid’ method during for the last few years with great success. Having an online option has made the course accessible to students for whom coming to Sheffield has previously not been possible, and we intend to keep this option available long-term.
If you are interested in receiving formal recognition for your studies, we are continuing our partnership with Cliff College to receive certification via their Short Course programme, run over two years. Once completed, this qualification can contribute towards access onto Cliff College's MA: Missions Course. More details about the certificate, including costs, will be available in September.

School of Leadership really works online providing an effective hybrid version where you feel just as included if you are participating over Zoom as if you were there in the building I love the social aspect of going to Sheffield, meeting the speakers and getting away - but if I stay home there are advantages around childcare whilst still receiving the same, high-quality teaching and engagement with my peers.
I have absolutely loved my 2 years at SoL and would recommend to anyone, there is so much to gain, it's been a privilege to learn, ask questions, make friends but ultimately to grow my relationship with God, the Bible and as a leader.
The course has been truly life changing, I am now studying the scripture in a new depth which is transforming my life and my passion for mission has intensified!
I was surprised how well designed the Online format works; the schedule of teaching and group discussions is perfectly balanced to help me engage with other students while still giving space to assimilate the fantastic material being taught.
I wasn't sure how SOL would work over Zoom and I was nervous about the first day; however I was met with a warm welcome over the computer screen. The sessions have been great with relevant, challenging and engaging Bible teaching, new friends made and most importantly, a deeper understanding of who God is, the importance of His story and plan throughout the Bible and how the church has formed and grown.
Some things are taught and others caught. School of leadership is an ideal forum for both…..a powerful mix of Spirit and Word. If you are considering any form of church leadership I can think of no better way of nurturing and growing in your gifting and in your passion to see 'His Kingdom Come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’ I am not ashamed to say that for me it has become an absolute oasis of joy and fulfilment in each month. Don’t hesitate. Sign up today!
School leadership is a must course for every one aspiring to know what it is to lead and serve in this 21st century. I'm fortunate to be part of this well structured course that's well taught by some amazing contemporary Christian leaders.
