Applied Leadership Track
July 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - January 1, 2030 @ 5:00 pm
Are you looking for an opportunity to develop your leadership abilities in a live/learn environment?
ALT (Applied Leadership Track) is a 3-month program which provides an opportunity for you to intentionally invest in your leadership ability by engaging in weekly leadership lessons, reading assignments, mentoring, and practical experience as you serve with Marine Reach. It’s a unique program that enables you to learn God’s principles of leadership AND live them through the week! At Marine Reach, we love to see young people being transformed and growing into confident, Christlike leaders through teaching, mentoring, and lots of hands-on experience. We see leadership as more than just a set of skills because leadership in the kingdom of God doesn’t work the same as it does in the world’s system. In fact, Jesus’ type of leadership operates out of a completely different paradigm and mindset than many of us are used to:
Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Matthew 20:25-28
The Art of Leading Yourself

Moving through a module, you will complete 13 Habitudes lessons and your own personal Habitudes workbook, which includes reading, application questions, self-assessments, and goal setting activities.
“Tim Elmore is a great communicator. I enjoyed these images so much, I asked him to teach them to our entire staff.”
– Andy Stanley, Founder and Senior Pastor, North Point Community Church
“These images will transform any young leader who is hungry to grow. I highly recommend them.”
– Josh McDowell, author
Last year, I was part of the ALT course and throughout the year I have been continually reminded of the visual images of the course in the various scenarios of my life. Often in lectures I feel like I can only retain a portion of what the speaker has to say, but I felt in this course I was able to grab hold of so much. I am a very visual person and was very thankful to find a very visual outlet to learn more about leadership.

The ALT course challenged my perspective on leadership and really helped me to have a better understanding of how God wants me to lead others compared to how I naturally lead or had been modelled leadership by others. Each week the concepts discussed introduced a new angle to Christian leadership that I had really never heard before. I also loved the fellowship this course held by being able to meet weekly and reflect on what each of us was learning. I highly recommend that everyone takes this course!

I decided to do ALT in order to grow in my leadership. I came out of the course understanding that influence begins with myself. If I want transformation I need a heart revelation of how Jesus led, how to apply it to myself, and how to impart it into others.
Ashley, 25, Washington, USA
The Applied leadership tract was a brilliant course for revealing ways in which my leadership was lacking but not only did it reveal that it also showed how to improve that. By the end of it I felt far more capable as a leader, of others but also of myself. I now feel more confident in my leadership and have a greater sense of knowing what the people I’m leading need.

The ALT course helps inspire vision and creates something new about leadership. This course helps you use management skills to guide yourself to the right decisions as a leader, and the Habitudes helped me personally and shaped my view of how to be a great leader for God.

“One of my highlights of staffing with Marine Reach has been completing ALT. The Habitudes material sparked excellent conversation inside and outside of the classroom, but more importantly, it gave me tools to apply immediately to my own leadership role. Even now, a year after completing the course, I often remind myself to ‘host the relationship’ in my interactions with others, which was one of the first lessons we looked at in ALT. Each week a simple yet profound leadership idea would be presented to me. As I’ve applied those ideas to my life, I feel much more prepared for leadership roles inside or outside of a ministry setting.”
