Your influence and leadership will grow.
The first year is 3 encounters, each 4 days, focusing on your purpose, values, and strengths. It’s about you and your story, and finding out what kind of leader you are. Along the way you will be introduced to tools and processes that will improve your leadership.
Year Two - Certificate
Year two is also 3 encounters, each one 4 days long, and the focus is how you interact and execute with others. We will cover issues like communication, conflict, and change. At the last encounter you will graduate with a Certificate in Christian Leadership.
After achieving the certificate, we offer an additional week of digging more into leadership principles and complexities. Completing the Intensive , along with a thesis, will earn you a Masters in Christian Leadership.
New Cohorts starting in the Spring of 2019!

CREST has created a space to learn new strategies, become equipped with practical tools to move beyond surviving to thriving in the second half of life!
