Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership

Philosophy

Scripture teaches that God gave leaders to His church and gifts them for leadership.  This accentuates the importance of leaders and leadership.  Moses mentoring Joshua and Paul mentoring Timothy indicate that leadership skills and competencies must be cultivated and developed.  Scholarship supports the truth of these principles in the organizational environment.  The success of organizations in the diverse and changing world of the twenty-first century hinges on the development of leaders capable of leading teams in assessing and addressing the complex issues of a global marketplace.

The Organizational Leadership Program at Urshan College is designed to assist in fulfilling the need of supplying trained leaders dedicated to positively impacting their organization, community, and world.  The OL Program commits to offering students courses and experiences that formally and informally educate, equip, and empower them as servant leaders to contribute to the success and development of their organization, church, and community.
