ipk Welcome to the Centre for Global Leadership Development! The world today is experiencing unprecedented change. Technology is already transforming the way we live. At the same time it is also a time marked by increased worldwide violence, uncertain economies, and unpredictable upheavals in human societies. The full impact of globalization is just beginning to be felt, and it signals daunting challenges for us all. I believe we are also living in days when God is demonstrating his redeeming power and love in the most unlikely places and through means that confound us all. At CGLD, we believe that God has placed us strategically for such a time as this, to prepare workers for the harvest and to equip leaders for the church and marketplace in Southern Asia. Currently, we have Southern Asia Bible College which has been training ministers of the Gospel for almost 60 years, Global School of Counselling for equipping caregivers, Global School of Open Learning that facilitates distance learning and Global School of Media, Arts and Communication that offers cutting edge programmes to effectively engage the media-savvy 21 century society. We challenge our students to a lifetime of good work, so they can creatively serve their generation in the spirit of Christ. The faculty bring years of professional and ministry expertise. You will be exposed to some of the best preachers and teachers from around the world, who will challenge you into spiritual disciplines such as prayer, fasting, and having a stronger personal devotional life. Character formation, spiritual formation, and learning to live a dedicated Christian life are seen as an integral part of the educational process here at CGLD. If CGLD is the place that God is leading you to equip yourself for ministry, we invite you to apply for admission. May the grace of the triune God abound in you!
