NEW! Church Leadership Honors Program

Posted: November 13, 2017



Never in modern history has there been a greater need for men and women who are committed to making a difference in the world as leaders in Christ’s Church. The Church Leadership Honors Program (CLHP) is designed for students who desire to use their gifts to serve God in full-time vocational ministry. Those in the program will receive one-on-one coaching from successful leaders and develop life-long relationships. They will serve in dynamic churches from their first semester on campus, where they will gain real-life experience that will prepare them for a lifetime of servant leadership. The CLHP is academically rigorous and will challenge students as they become fully equipped to lead and impact the world for Christ.

"The Church Leadership Honors Program is an investment by HIU to train future church leaders without them incurring insurmountable debt. The substantial scholarship will be coupled with an outstanding program taught by committed church leaders who have proven their dedication and effectiveness to the local church," says Dr. Joe Grana, Dean of HIU's Pacific Christian College of Ministry & Biblical Studies. "This is a historic milestone at Hope International University. Be among the first to benefit from -- and contribute to -- this dynamic and unique opportunity for preparation to fulfill Jesus’ Mission!" 

FINANCIAL BENEFIT: Students who qualify for this program will pay just $10,000/year in tuition, saving as much as $80,000 (or more) over four years.
