Aiming to create lasting change in U.S. congregations by supporting Christian leaders and the institutions they serve

Leadership Education at Duke Divinity participates in the cultivation of thriving communities that are signs, foretastes, and instruments of the reign of God. We address a yearning for greater strength and vitality among Christian institutions and for greater faithfulness and effectiveness in the leadership and management of those institutions.

We work with those institutions whose mission is the formation of Christians and who have the strength to have scalable impact: denominations, seminaries, church-related colleges, consultancies, large membership congregations, Christian non-profit organizations, and others.

Leadership Education at Duke Divinity designs educational services, develops intellectual resources, and facilitates networks of institutions. Our offerings include online resources, programs and training, and custom services.

Support is provided by a major grant from Lilly Endowment Inc., an Indianapolis-based, private philanthropic foundation created in 1937.
