Faculty & Staff


The members of our leadership team effectively lead our faculty and students in all aspects of their Christian education.  Distributed leadership is described as "the sharing, the spreading, and the distributing of leadership work across individuals and roles throughout the organization" (Smylie, Mayrowetz, Murphy, & Louis, 2007)
