How LEAP Works

Wave Leadership College is nationally recognized for its exceptional skills-based learning program, Leadership Experience and Practicum.  LEAP is designed to offer students practical, hands-on experience so that students can discover and refine their particular gifting. Students learn and serve under the guidance of experienced leaders in a positive learning environment, where they receive assessment, direction, and evaluation to help them improve and develop. The departmental service portion of the course provides firsthand introduction to the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental capacity necessary for exemplary leadership; the classroom experience bridges the gap between students’ academic learning and the “real world” application of concepts for both ministry and vocational settings.
