Biblical Worldview

Leaders Academy is a nine-month internship designed to equip young leaders with a Biblical worldview and to equip them with the life skills necessary to reach their full potential in Christ. Applied Life Leaders Academy is designed to teach this culture how to take God’s Word and apply it to their everyday lives so that they can achieve the victories that God has for them.

Personal Growth

A challenging and captivating academic life coupled with real hands-on ministry internship will enable this generation to develop and discover their God-given talents and gifts. Applied Life Leaders Academy doesn’t just keep teaching in the classroom, but provides this generation the opportunity to “experience” what is being learned, rather than merely contemplate it.

Godly Mentors

Leaders Academy is very intentional in connecting interns with godly, knowledgeable, caring mentors. Interns are given the rare opportunity to “do life” with the leadership at LA. We believe that knowledge is “caught” rather than “taught”, so we endeavor to disciple every intern on an individual basis. This opportunity is one of the most talked about favorites among interns.
