Biblical Leadership

The Biblical Leadership endorsement desires to support students by guiding them within specific areas of their passions and vocational leading—missional emphasis, pastoral emphasis, theological/educational emphasis, etc.

Program Overview

The Biblical Leadership endorsement provides students with advanced Biblical engagement, experiential and practical learning through involvement in a defined ministry and leadership context, impactful service opportunities, and a capstone project. Through this, students will see who the Lord has made them to be, gain life enduring knowledge (mentally and experientially) for the purpose of living as transformational leaders, who reflect Christ.

Biblical Leadership Requirements:

Each endorsement program at Valor entails a specific number of what we have called experiential units (EUs) to achieve the designation. The intent for the Biblical Leadership endorsement is that students complete the endorsement requirements primarily through coursework, experiential engagement, leadership opportunities, and mentor/mentee relationships. Through these opportunities students earn Experiential Units culminating in a rich body of work.

If you travel 40 miles per 60 minutes, what’s your average speed per hour, or what’s your average rate of change (the change in distance over the change in time)? Are they different? Students in AP Calculus played cops and speeders last week in class. Students had the opportunity to use real radar guns and math to try and see if they could catch their classmates speeding along Fairview.
