Helping You Be a Better Leader

The Third Year of the Crest Leadership Program

Once you have completed the two-year Diploma program, complete your development by earning the Masters in Christian Leadership.  This is a non-academic, practical degree and credential.

It includes:

…an additional five day intensive learning encounter

…and the completion of a leadership project or paper.

“The greatest benefit was the style of the presenters, their knowledge, delivery, depth of experience and insights, humor, quality of material presented, and their hearts. I love being away together with other leaders with no competing distractions. Being affirmed in how God has shaped me as a leader has been a gift that was given to me by the CREST experience and by each of my new friends individually.  I think I may be ready to unwrap the gift.”

The Five Day Learning Intensive

Applying your learning into a specific project


To earn the MCL credential, you require a Bachelor’s degree. However, if you do not have a Bachelor’s, please contact us to discuss equivalency options.

The MCL is available only to graduates of the CREST Leadership Program, because it is built on and complements what is learned in the certificate program.


We are opening the MCL experience to any CREST graduate to audit the program. You will earn an audit certificate and are not required to write the required paper, nor will it be marked, but you receive the same experience and benefit at the Intensive.


The regular price for this MCL Intensive is $3997; but we are offering a $500 discount if you apply by November 29, 2019.

The only commitment is your application followed by a $500 deposit. This will secure your $500 discount and reserve your spot in the cohort . It’s first come first serve.



We can only take 14 students in each MCL cohort and we have over 25 students who are currently taking the CREST Certificate Program who may be looking to immediately continue on to the MCL and some have already applied!
