What is LEAD?

LEAD stands for Leadership Education for Adult Development.  LEAD is a degree completion program for individuals who desire to complete a Bachelor’s degree.  LEAD classes are offered at night, perfect for students who work full-time and have families.

How does LEAD work?

LEAD classes meet one night per week from 6-10pm.  Students take classes one at a time, allowing them to focus all their attention on one subject.

What should I expect from a LEAD class?

LEAD students benefit from small class sizes that provide close relationships with fellow students and professors.  We are proud to offer a 6:1 student to faculty ratio in the LEAD program.  LEAD classes are designed to stretch students mentally and spiritually.

What degrees does Manhattan Christian College offer in the LEAD format?

LEAD offers two Bachelor’s degrees: BS Biblical Leadership and BS Management & Ethics.

How long will it take me to graduate?

Most students graduate in approximately 2 years.  Once you have been accepted, your college transcripts will be evaluated and you will be given an estimated graduation date.

Will my prior military, work, or ministry experience count toward my degree?

We do accept Joint Service Transcripts (JST) for past military service, and you may receive credit for prior learning from work or ministry experience.  Approximately 20% of the LEAD population has received academic credit for their military service.

When will decisions on acceptance be made and how will applicants be notified of their application decision?

Once Admissions has received all application documents, the LEAD Director will decide whether the student will be accepted or denied admission.  Applicants will be notified by mail or email after the admissions decision has been made.

How much time should I expect to spend on schoolwork each week?

Because LEAD classes are taught in an accelerated format, students should expect to spend approximately 14 hours each week on schoolwork outside the class.  This work may include reading, research, homework, tests, and/or writing assignments.  The amount of time spent outside of class is largely dependent on the students’ study habits and reading comprehension.

What are the credentials of your faculty?

LEAD professors are professional, well educated, relational, and strive to help students meet their goals.  Their diverse ministry and educational backgrounds give students a wide perspective of the church and para-church ministry field.
