The Public Leader is a 10-month course which has been developed by the Evangelical Alliance to equip emerging Christian leaders to make a significant impact in every area of UK public life. The course is aimed at those in their 20s and 30s who are seeking to follow the Lord in and through their sphere of influence, work and vocation.
They recognise in the current climate that we need to invest in Christian public leaders more than ever and they have adapted our programme and structure to take account of some of the new challenges and opportunities. The course runs from September 2021 to June 2022 and consists of monthly in-person gatherings where they plan to share a meal together with lots of great teaching, discussion and input from inspirational public leaders. They will also have 2 x 24 hour retreats, one in October and one in May 2022 and at three points in the year they will have shared digital sessions with the other public leader cohorts in Scotland, England and Wales and hear from international speakers.
One participant on the course last year commented,
“The Lord has stirred and excited my heart and now I really believe there’s something for me in this space in which culture and faith intersects. This course and your influence will always be a marker for me in this part of my learning.”
