dare to dream

The desire of MLC is to equip, encourage, and empower emerging leaders to discover, engage, and grow in God’s purposes and plans for their lives. We’ve intentionally designed MLC to achieve this by coupling accredited college coursework through Southeastern University, with hands on ministry and leadership experience at Evangel. This all takes place within the context of authentic relationship and community where students can thrive.


Leadership is developed through teachings, mentorship, and time within your ministry department.

character development

Spiritual growth will come through intentional time and investment from pastors and ministry leaders, as well as peer-to-peer interaction.

future minded

“One of the things God spoke to me early on in leading a church was to be future-minded by pursuing what’s ahead while honoring the past. MLC is one of our most powerful avenues to accomplish that vision! We are so excited to offer a program where emerging leaders can not only be trained in God’s Word but can also be empowered to operate in their God-given gifts and talents while gaining valuable ministry experience. We are proud to serve as a training ground for these leaders and humbled to play a role in equipping and commissioning this next generation of leaders. We look ahead with excitement and confidence to how God will continue to use MLC to raise up leaders in our communities. We truly believe that the best is yet to come!”
