EXPERIENCE JESUS

Leaders Academy is a nine-month internship designed to help young leaders establish a deep and authentic relationship with God. Knowing God and putting Him first is the key to creating a successful and fulfilling life. Creating moments of worship to experience the Lord’s Presence is a big part of LA!

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.

OUR CLASSES


LA classes are some of the best available for developing a Biblical Worldview and they also train interns in practical everyday living.

APOLOGETICS

apologetics

This course equips the intern with reasons for his faith in accordance with I Peter 3:15 which says, “Always be ready to give reason of the hope that is in you.” Apologetics analyzes the reliability of the New and Old Testament’s, messianic and historical prophecies, the resurrection and how recent archaeological discoveries have shown the Bible to be a historically accurate and reliable work of antiquity. This course also tackles the tough questions raised by critics.

MEN & WOMEN OF PURPOSE

intro-to-life-application

(Men and Women taught separately) Men of Purpose: This course instructs men in hygiene, etiquette and protocol with the opposite sex. It also covers their Biblical roles as protector, provider, and guide. Women of Purpose: This course gives young women a vision for becoming a Proverbs 31 woman. Make-up, clothing, fashion, and color coordination are discussed and applied. This course also emphasizes lifestyle skills in social settings, temperament management, self-esteem and communication skills.

INTRO TO LEADERSHIP

intro-to-leadership

Whether it’s making a move, trying something new, picking a college, starting a business, or making the commitment of marriage; nothing happens without leadership. Introduction to Leadership is structured to increase each intern’s ability to lead himself or herself, others, and the nation. Through interactive teaching, training, and discussion, this course will develop each intern’s ability to influence their generation for Christ.

OLD TESTAMENT

old-testament

Sadly, the OT is the least read of the Bible. This course examines the Old Testament in light of God’s plan of redemption. It also reveals God’s character through the Pentateuch and the writings of the Prophets. Interns learn about substitutionary sacrifice, redemption, atonement, salvation and more. Special attention is given to see how God’s Word is applicable for today. The Old Testament comes alive in this intern picked favorite course.

FAMILY LIFE

family-life

This course teaches the godly design of the family through understanding the role of the man, woman and child within the family unit. It deals with relationships between the wife, husband, parents and children, extensively discussing methods of child discipline, as well as important marital issues. Students learn by example through the godly pattern lived out in front of them by staff families. Interns will get a vision for a godly home as a result of this course.

CHRISTIAN LIFE

christian-life

This course teaches the practical application of Christian doctrines and their purpose in daily living. Far too many Christians today do not know the fundamental doctrines of their faith and as a result, have no depth in their spiritual walk with God. Topics include the following: knowing the will of God, the attributes of God, the deity of Christ, the Trinity, the work of the Holy Spirit, salvation of man, water baptism, heaven, hell, gifts of the spirit and more. This course is vital as it gives the intern a deep, concise, solid foundation for their faith.

APPLIED LEADERSHIP

applied-leadership

This course will continue the process of developing leadership by showing the interns that the most effective way to lead is by modeling, molding, and mentoring. Interns will learn the art of being productive, reproducing their gifts in others, and delegation. This course will cause interns to evaluate who they are and what effect they are having on people. It will also motivate them to be someone who makes a difference.

NEW TESTAMENT

new-testament

This course surveys the 27 books of the New Testament by first looking at the 4 Gospels and how they reveal Jesus as King, Servant, Man, and God. Books are analyzed in the Eschatological, Soteriological, Christological and Ecclesiological categories and special attention is given to see how God’s Word is applicable for today. The New Testament comes alive in this intern picked favorite course.

MANAGEMENT OF LIFE

management-of-life

This course encourages leadership abilities and develops individual potential. By looking into the life of Joseph, leaders learn to observe their habits (good and bad), organizational skills, words they say, financial decisions, mental patterns, and learn time management. Many people want to live a successful and fulfilling life, but lack the skills and discipline to attain it. This course is all about learning to walk in wisdom and apply the Word daily in every situation.

MEN'S & WOMEN'S BASICS

applied-life-application

(Men and Women taught separately) Men: This course is designed to give young men practical knowledge of electricity, carpentry, plumbing, small engines, auto mechanics and much more. It enables the intern to do his own home repair work, without the expensive aid of professionals. Women: This course is designed to give young women hands-on experience in buying and preparing meals, entertaining, decorating and all the general needs of managing a home. This course is a must for everyone.

ROMANS

romans

This course is a study of Paul’s letter to the Romans. It covers Paul’s foundational teachings of the Gospel of Jesus including mankind’s moral guilt before God, justification by faith, sanctification through union with Christ and Christian life and service. Romans is by far one of the most important of Paul’s teachings in the NT. Romans give a clear explanation of salvation. This course makes clear the plan of salvation for mankind.

PRAYER

prayer-and-intercession

In this class interns will be taught the value of prayer. Learning how to connect with God, hear His voice, intercede, praying in faith, standing on the promises of God’s Word, the power of agreement, and more is taught in this class. Interns won’t just be taught, but will experience the power prayer for themselves. We believe no Christian is more powerful than his/her prayer life, therefore prayer is essential!
