More Info:
The Brethren Academy Online is a year-long program in which students will be trained and equipped to think theologically and develop servant leadership skills while deepening their faith. Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to grow their knowledge about Leadership (Ministry & Marketplace), discover their unique leadership giftings, and gain practical experience in leadership roles.

The BA Online is not meant to be a passive experience. Participating students can expect to spend 6-10 hours/ month working through modules, meeting with their mentors, and participating in online gatherings. The work you put into the BA directly correlates to the value you will receive from participating in this experience.

Our expectations:
To get the most out of the Brethren Academy Online, students should be able to attend 2 of the 3 online gatherings, complete 80% of the modules given, and communicate regularly with your mentor throughout the year.
