College, done differently
Abundant Life Leadership College is about doing college differently. We’re raising up the next generation of church leaders by giving them hands-on ministry training, quality leadership teaching, and accredited Bible education all in one place, at a fraction of the price of a traditional university.
What we’re about
Everyone has a calling on their life, given by God – a beautifully diverse assortment of teachers, doctors, craftsmen, entrepreneurs, and the like. For some, that calling is to full-time, vocational ministry in the local church. The problem is, a degree from an accredited Bible college can be prohibitively expensive for many young people, and the classroom setting, while great for building knowledge, can’t adequately facilitate the real-world, hands-on skills that many ministry jobs require. The result is a student who graduates Bible college with an abundance of debt and a lack of experience. We wanted to change that story, and that’s why we formed Abundant Life Leadership College.
The best of both worlds
At ALLC, students with a call to ministry can receive the education they need and the hands-on experience to succeed, all in one place. Students study the same academic curriculum as a traditional on-campus degree program features, and graduate with the course work necessary to get their ministerial credentials, or pursue a seminary or other graduate-level degree. They also graduate ALLC with 2 years of experience working side by side with seasoned ministers in the operations of Abundant Life Community Church. We want young people to be set up for success stepping into full-time ministry, and ALLC offers the best of both worlds.
The Internship element
Abundant Life Leadership College is about more than just head knowledge – it’s about learning by doing. Every student will be able to choose one of four ministry areas to focus on: Music, Student Ministry, Kids Ministry, and Communications. Experienced staff members at Abundant Life will teach, coach, and mentor students in group and one-on-one settings. It’s our desire to build lifelong relationships that extend beyond the years at ALLC.
