“We need leaders to be strong in faith, relevant in business and corporate life, connected in the spirit and in church, empowered to stand with courage and boldness to act by conviction at such times of change as this. This program is foundational to build such leaders amongst us.” – Archbishop Julian Leow, DD

“Everything rises and falls with leadership – be it in the corporate world or in the church. This program will equip out leaders to rise above their set limitations to break barriers about faith and work, so that the new leader will be one with a renewed mind: fully embracing the dynamics of marketplace, leadership, ethics and justice for individuals and society.” – Bishop Sebastian Francis, DD

“The concept of servant leadership will be enhanced through this program which I believe is the essence of effective leadership. We need a program that builds our leaders to be open to change, be led by the Spirit and by the Wisdom of the Word, to serve, govern and lead the Mission.” – Bishop Bernard Paul, DD
