Advanced Christian Leadership Training for International and American Students
Customized Personal and Peer Mentoring
After discovering both the felt and underlying needs of potential mentees, we teach and demonstrate how to apply biblical and Christian thoughts to those needs so that they can effectively apply a Christian worldview to social and workplace challenges. We provide peer mentoring as well, through monthly meetings and activities with our Wilberforce Academy Fellows.

Cutting Edge Program Events
We offer retreats and conferences that attempt to answer the question of how Christians can impact various social spheres by skillfully, creatively, courageously, and intelligently applying a Christian perspective to pressing needs in society and the workplace. We also provide training and support in planning a redemptive project where Fellows gain project development and management skills.
Economic growth does not produce political freedom. That just several hundred Chinese Communist Party leaders will make Xi Jinping president for life confirms China’s citizens lack political freedoms, even while they become richer. Most scholars once imagined that growing wealth would generate political freedom in China. But, this hasn’t happened in China, as I almost forecasted nearly a quarter century ago.
Why did I feel such revulsion when our American president uttered a profane description of nations in Africa (and the nation of Haiti)? First, I work with international students from around the world, and I do not want to unnecessarily offend them. Secondly, I am deeply concerned that our president is degrading the American people, and especially members of his political party as well as his core support base (evangelicals) in ways previously unimaginable and tragic.
