Leadership formation for those looking to connect their Christian faith to bringing about positive change in their organizations and the wider world. The Centre for Christian Studies is grounded in the diaconal tradition, which means being the church in the world. It means standing with those who are marginalized. It means leadership that empowers others, and it’s grounded in a theology of justice.

At Learning on Purpose you’ll explore models of leadership and approaches to theology, education, pastoral care, and social justice that empower and create change.
