Fall - Winter - Spring



The MDP Leadership Cohort is a 9-month program designed to equip emerging Christian leaders for effective ministry in whatever context(s) God has called them to- be it the home, church, work, etc. It provides a multi-faceted framework for participants to develop as leaders in the margins of life alongside one another in community in seasonal 3-month sessions (Fall, Winter, Spring).



As a Cohort participant, you will expand the limits of your current leadership capacity. You will be challenged to grow in character, knowledge, skill and experience in fresh and innovative ways. Leadership workshops, reading, reflective writing, growth challenges, discipleship and group discussions are all an integral part of the Cohort experience. Quarterly retreats and conference trips are also made available to cohort participants as an exciting and enriching supplement. These retreats catalyze deep fellowship with like-minded leaders and provide rare respite from the bustle of the daily grind. From back-country camping to big-city excursions, these provide some of the richest, albeit, most intangible growth opportunities within the program. Noteworthy conferences attended regularly include Catalyst Conference, Right Now Conference, Leadercast and The Global Leadership Summit.
