Christian Leadership Institute - Fall Semester 2014


Concordia University Texas Christian Leadership Institute (CTXCLI)


Overview of the Institute

This special Institute is designed for sophomore, junior and senior students at Concordia Texas who exhibit leadership qualities and who seek opportunities to expand their leadership potential beyond the current academic curriculum at CTX. Students in the Institute will be given opportunities through lecture, self-study, and project experience in a collaborative and focused learning community to see the heart and skills of a Christian leader and to develop their leadership capacity.

The uniquely Christian nature of the University and its publicly stated intention to honor Christ in word and deed will guide the work of CTXCLI. The Institute is designed to foster within each participant a deeper understanding of Christian leadership principles and to explore creative leadership concepts.

New Announcement for Fall Semester 2014

Due to our desire to broaden the exposure of the Institute to a wider Concordia audience than would be possible via the process implemented in the initial Institute pilot last semester, for this 2014 fall semester the “traditional” Institute program will be replaced with three one-hour sessions for interested sophomore, junior and senior students.

Each session in the Chapel/Auditorium in Building A will feature an exciting and inspirational presentation by a successful Christian leader, followed by Q&A. The “traditional” program, including a project component, will be offered to successful sophomore, junior and senior applicants in the 2015 spring semester.

Schedule for Remaining Sessions -- Fall Semester 2014

The sessions:

  • Monday, September 15--already completed
  • Wednesday, October 22
  • Monday, November 17

The October session will be held in the Chapel/Auditorium in Building A. The November session will be held in the Black Box Theater. Both sessions will be from 11:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m.
