Manhattan Christian College hosts a variety of events throughout the year to educate, equip, and enrich Christian leaders outside of the traditional classroom.

The Leadership Network Seminar has been an outreach ministry of Manhattan Christian College since 2006. Each one is designed to provide practical information on current and future ministry issues facing today’s church leaders. The low registration price makes it possible for multiple people from the same congregation or ministry staff to attend together, i.e. lead pastors, elders, Sunday School teachers, church staff, and any ministry leader who relies on volunteers.
