Organizational Leadership

A Biblical Approach to Executive Leadership

The mission of our Organizational Leadership program is to equip students with knowledge and skills to work with, manage, and lead people. For nearly 100 years, our passion at Faith Baptist Bible College has been to produce the next generation of servant leaders. Beginning in the fall of 2019, students will have the opportunity to earn a four-year, regionally accredited degree in Organizational Leadership.

Why this degree is different from traditional business degrees

This degree, which emphasizes a Biblical approach to executive leadership, is a rarity in higher education. Every student will have 42 credits of Bible as a foundation of their degree. You won’t find many programs like this at colleges or universities across America. While a traditional business degree focuses almost entirely on hard skills, this 21st-century program¬†will not only cover those areas, but will stress the importance of soft skills, such as:

  • Leadership
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Vision-casting and strategic planning
  • Team building
  • Communication skills
  • Project management skills

Graduates from this program will be well-equipped for the following careers:

  • Management
  • CEO
  • Operations Management
  • Corporate Recruiter
  • Administrative and Executive Assistants
  • Human Resource Managers
  • Events Management
  • Pastoral and Camp Director Ministries
