Doctor of Global Leadership:
Redemptive Imagination in the Marketplace

In a rapidly changing world, leaders across industries and sectors are uniquely positioned to be agents of God’s redemption and renewal as they seek answers to the most pressing challenges of our times. In corporations and nonprofits, in entrepreneurial endeavors, and in educational institutions, we need leaders who are both oriented by the hope of Christ and equipped to energize systems and people toward a wide array of systemic changes that align with the mission of God at work in the world. Eminently practical and deeply theological, this cohort seeks to equip students to integrate their faith with their work in a way that produces generative experiments, renewed relationships, and meaningful results.

Cohort Mentor

Dr. Michaela O’Donnell, Executive Director of the Max De Pree Center for Leadership, will be the cohort mentor. She is a graduate of Fuller Seminary (MDiv and PhD), the author of Make Work Matter: Your Guide to Meaningful Work in a Changing World, and the Owner and Managing Director of Long Winter Media.
