Lift Leadership Institute seeks to provide students with a Christian Education that will lift them to a level of fulfilling God’s purpose that is upon their lives. We offer several classes that build character and integrity by using the wise counsels that are found in God’s Word. The students learn to serve, lead, and do ministry. Doing ministry is serving God and His people in a righteous way. Lift Leadership’s ultimate goal is to raise up great leaders that offer their gifts, talents, and abilities through which the Body of Christ is edified. The Leadership Institute offers an Associate Degree in Christian Leadership. To earn the Associate Degree a student must complete a two-year program fulfilling all obligations during a four-semester program.


Lift Leadership Institute is designed to equip people with the truth of God’s Word to produce mature followers of Christ. The Institute seeks to educate students to think scripturally, live Christianly, and serve the church effectively and excellently.
