Healthier Leaders. Stronger Churches.  Greater Impact.

The Seattle Leadership Institute is an intentional, collaborative approach to local leadership development, for the sake of the gospel, and for the sake of God’s kingdom in the city we love.

The Seattle Leadership Institute exists to identify, equip, and empower volunteer leaders, church planters, pastors and practitioners for the church in Seattle through a collaborative Leadership Cohort Program.

Leadership Cohorts

Cohort-based Learning

Emerging leaders will participate in a learning cohort (ideally 8-12 candidates).  This cohort will meet on a quarterly basis.  Participating churches will host the cohort on a rotating basis, collectively providing teaching and training while the cohort builds relationships with each other and participating church leadership.


Participating Candidates will:

  • Grow in real-life ministry training and equipping

  • Mature as followers of Christ

  • Engage in collaborative learning from local practitioners

  • Learn to understand local culture and context

  • Experience hands-on discipleship and leadership opportunities

  • Formulate a plan for future ministry endeavors

Who should apply?

Women and men that have a strong desire to grow in their abilities to equip disciple-making disciples of Jesus in their local church.
