Event Purpose
The Leadership Breakfast has been an outreach ministry of the college since 2003.  Its purpose is to inspire and invest in the Christian leaders in the Manhattan community who will in turn strengthen their businesses, churches, and organizations that they are affiliated with.  This is just one of the events that Manhattan Christian College hosts throughout the year to educate, equip, and enrich Christian leaders outside of the traditional classroom. Participants receive a copy of the leadership resource recommended by the speaker.
