“Inspirational, motivational, practical, challenging – that’s how I describe The Fellows Program. I was stretched to think outside the box as I learned from the best practices of Christian leaders in their professional fields. It was like being at a Leadership Summit in person every month, and I was not alone. There’s coaching and accountability, and I walked away with a sustainable strategic plan ready for action.” 

SANDRA BARNETT, Adult & Youth Development Coordinator, Here’s Life Inner City/CRU, Queens  


“The networking that occurs in the Leadership Fellows Program has been exciting and rejuvenating. I have been enriched not only by the speakers and the course content, but by my colleagues. I am thankful to the Fellows program for helping me become a better leader and to grow my organization.”

“When I became the Executive Director of New Life of NYC in the Lower East Side, I enrolled in the Leadership Fellows Program. I have learned more about myself and my leadership skills in the past five months than I had in the previous five years.”

“The New York City Leadership Center is a tremendous resource to New York City and beyond. Its exemplary mission to uphold the image of Christ through effective management proves that responsible leadership is more than a religious requirement, but a way of life. If you want to see an impact in your leadership and community, then I would strongly encourage you to take part in the Leadership Fellows Program. This course has had a great impact on myself and our team.” 

ADAM DURSOPresident, Faith Breathes LLC, Mineola, NY, USA


“The Leadership Fellows Program has had a great impact upon my leadership and the quality of service I am able to offer in my respective roles. I learned how to develop a mission statement, which is backed by SMART goals. I discovered and harnessed several thousands of dollars of formerly untapped revenue for our outreach. None of this would have been possible without the Fellows Program.” 

MIMSIE ROBINSON, Missions Pastor, Bethel Gospel Assembly, Harlem    


"Going through the Fellows Program has encouraged me to take a step back from the day to day and think about how I can be a good steward of the person God's made me, of the position He's put me in, and of the talents and skills He's continually developing in me. The high-quality speakers and the readings have challenged me to think through themes of effective use of time, of cultivating a culture of generosity and caring for others, and have helped me to re-focus on specific growth areas for me personally and professionally."
