Thank you for your interest in Avance Christian Leadership Institute of the National Latino Evangelical Coalition (NaLEC).

In partnership with Calvario City Church and Upward Leader Academy, Avance brings together Latina/o emerging leaders as colleagues in an encouraging and collaborative learning environment. 

Avance is designed to equip Christian Leadership for service excellence in a church and/or a para-church organization through life-on-life learning.

Participants will work with qualified mentors, coaches, pastors, professors and authors to build a healthy, Biblical framework around these four foci:

1. Personal & Family Life

2. Organizational & Institutional Thinking

3. Church & Public Life

4. Vocational Discernment


√  Avance is a 24-month program from October 2018 to September 2020

√  Avance meets every 2-weeks, via live video conferencing, which means you don’t have to travel or leave the comfort of your home. 

√  Each session is 90-minutes long and is recorded so that you can revisit the discussions or view a session that you may have missed. 

√  You’ll gain powerful insights and tools from various books and assignments that are tailored to enhance your personal learning and development. 

√  Avance creates a safe and trusting place for you to share and discover with the members of your cohort without judgment or shame.

√  You’ll have access to a “members-only” portal to the Avance online learning management system where you can grab all the course materials and video content from any smartphone, tablet or computer…at any time.

√  Your registration includes a full-access pass to the 2019 & 2020 Summit Leadership Conference in Orlando, FL.
