Calvary Leadership College

Our God creates. He initiates.  He innovates.  He risks.  He doesn’t sit back and wait for things to happen, He makes things happen.  Put simply; God leads, and you have been made in His image.  Calvary Leadership College is about more than reciting textbooks and theories.  We are all about equipping you to lead with excellence in your personal life, workplace and local church.

President, Calvary Leadership College
Senior Pastor, Calvary Church

We ask, “Does God have a plan for my life?”, when it is God who is asking of us, “Do you have a life for My plan?”

To enrol at Calvary Leadership College is to answer God’s question with a resounding ‘YES!’. Like Isaiah of old, we are saying, “Here am I Lord, send me!”

Calvary Leadership College exists to help you prepare your life to serve the plan and purpose of God, in whatever form that takes. Graduates of Calvary Leadership College will go on to plant churches, lead ministries and pursue careers, all with a firm conviction that they are doing so in answer to God’s invitation of service. It’s a conviction that you are serving God’s plan that transforms a job into a ministry, a profession into a purpose, a career into a calling.

Calvary Leadership College is about surrendering our lives, sharpening our skills and developing our character so that we can become useful to serve God’s plan in our generation.

In 2017, you’ll be challenged to think larger thoughts, pray larger prayers and to live a larger life. You’ll develop friendships with like-minded people across Australia – friendships that will last a lifetime as together we pursue God’s purpose. You’ll be exposed to outstanding men and women of God, leaders who are making a difference and who will inspire and equip you to do the same.

So, do you have a life for God’s plan? If your answer is ‘yes’, well then let’s get started. I look forward to seeing you as part of Calvary Leadership College in 2017.

Testimonials

I am very impressed with Calvary Leadership College’s approach to leadership training. Under Pastor James Macpherson, Calvary now has five College locations being over-sighted by their Campus Pastors. This ensures practicing leaders are imparting real “on the ground” principles in a growth environment. Using videos from strategic leaders will ensure that a new generation of pioneers are launched into the global mission of the church.
Steve Penny
Calvary Leadership College demonstrates excellence in every facet that one would look for in an education experience. The diversity in expertise of each lecturer, mixed with the outstanding practical application opportunities provided by Calvary Christian Church, is without peer for leadership training. In my opinion, you simply cannot receive anything better than what you receive from Pastor James Macpherson and the team at Calvary Leadership College. I enthusiastically recommend this program.
Shane Willard
If you want to be someone that influences your world, Calvary Leadership College is the place for you. CLC provides a great platform where you will learn key biblical truth and glean from some of Australia’s best leaders. I guarantee you will be stretched in your leadership and your thinking. I would highly recommend Calvary Leadership College.
Lucas Connell
James Macpherson has built an incredible church over the past 9 years. One of the keys to their success has been James’ leadership mind. James, and the Calvary team, are committed to developing and training leaders right across the state of Queensland and beyond. If you are looking to grow in your influence and understanding of the Word of God, I would highly recommend Calvary Leadership College.
