Arrow Leadership and Briercrest Seminary are pleased to announce a new partnership that will provide significant credit recognition for graduates of the Arrow Leadership Program toward Briercrest’s unique and modular Master of Arts in Leadership and Management.
In outlining the partnership, Dr. Dustin Resch, Interim Dean of Briercrest Seminary shares, “Arrow Leadership and Briercrest Seminary each aim to cultivate leaders who will exercise a transformative influence for the kingdom of God in their various contexts. Now graduates of Arrow Leadership can pursue a MA in Leadership and Management at Briercrest Seminary with significant advanced standing and without repeating the valuable learning that they experienced in their Arrow journey. And Briercrest Seminary students can now easily include an Arrow Leadership experience as a significant component of their MA degree.”
“From my early connections with Arrow, my dream was for us to partner together in the development of Kingdom leaders.” – Paul Magnus
Arrow’s Canadian President, Dr. Steve Brown, highlights that, “Arrow graduates – from either the Emerging or Executive Streams – serving in non-profit, senior church or executive leadership, public service or marketplace leadership roles, will be attracted to Briercrest’s biblically-based modular program that features experienced professors from around North America. Receiving recognition for twelve credits demonstrates the intensity of their Arrow journey and provides a strong head start toward a high-quality Masters degree.”
This partnership has been a long time in the making. As Paul Magnus, President Emeritus and Distinguished Professor of Leadership/Management at Briercrest shares, “From my early connections with Arrow, my dream was for us to partner together in the development of Kingdom leaders. Seeing this come to fruition was the realization of a fond dream. It is my sense that this partnership will have mutual benefit to both organizations and maximum benefit to the wonderful leaders investing in developing their leadership expertise in the 21st Century. What a delight it is to work with those students who have taken the Arrow leadership journey and then join us for additional leadership development in an academic setting. I delight in what this will do for leaders and leadership development in Canada and well beyond.”
