Incarnation Leadership Video Series

As a part of the CSL's Doctoral Oxford Institute, students spend a week in Oxford, learning about leadership from a global perspective. Throughout the week, a driving theme is the concept of Incarnational Leadership, an understanding of Leadership Theory from a uniquely Chrisitan perspective that seeks to lead like Jesus in whatever calling the Lord provides.

These series of videos highlight characteristics of Incarnational Leadership as seen in the lives of several individuals whom are explored during the week.
