Student Stories

The subjects I'm learning at AC are relevant to my leadership context and help me gain clarity and practical tools for my staff meetings, sermons, and strategic meetings. Online learning means I can work at my own pace, and the material is too good not to engage with it. I wasn't ready for the Master of Leadership 10 years ago, but I'm so thankful I'm doing it now before it's too late.
