Purpose Statement• The All Nations Leadership Academy exists to make a significant difference in solving some of the most critical problems in our country and the rest of the world.• South Africa is at a critical stage of it’s redevelopment and in dire need of intellectually and morally stimulated individuals that have the commitment and dedication to change it for the better.
Philosophical Overview There is a battle raging between Christo-centric and Humanistic thought, therefore it is critical for the Christian leadership student to be well- grounded in the principles and methods for defending and applying Christian principles. It is our conviction that the divinely-revealed Word of God is the only basis for a sound world- view that sows the seeds of intellectual, ethical, and scientific life and liberty, while all other belief systems sow misery, bondage and death.
Educational Philosophy• The educational philosophy of ANLA is self- consciously rooted in the Scriptures which provide the framework through which a worldview and comprehensive philosophy of life is developed.• This foundational framework then becomes the value system through which all thoughts, intentions, and actions, are judged for truth or error.• The Scriptures are the foundation of all knowledge and wisdom.
Historical impact study At ANLA emphasis is placed upon understanding the ideologies and movements that have fundamentally shaped the African civilization. While it is true that Christianity has influenced much of African culture, much is still left wanting. These many cultural influences upon leadership will be carefully studied and, in the case of non- Christian thought, critically evaluated.
ANLA is not a Bible School• Although we use the Bible as our foundational reference tool we are not a Bible school, we do not teach doctrine, theology, eschatology or ecclesiology at our leadership academy.• At ANLA our focus is purely on the development of the leader within.• It is therefore not our endeavor to change our students on a doctrinal level, but to empower and enhance their leadership capabilities.
Prepared for the Kingdom Knowledge for the sake of knowledge is useless, and even harmful, while knowledge drawn from the reservoir of Scripture must be used to advance the Kingdom of God in this world. ANLA is a leadership academy which emphasizes that it is the responsibility of each person to obediently use the tools they have acquired to exercise godly dominion in every profession, occupation, or endeavor they pursue. Thus, the key to the Christian life is not knowledge per se, but ethical action for which all knowledge must be used.
Why is a Christian Leadership Academy Needed? To develop significant leaders in the church for the kingdom of God, a vacuum not filled by most Bible Schools or tertiary institutions. To call out extraordinary leadership from believers in Christ as they minister within their churches so that the church may advance in its mission in the world. Leadership is not the private practice of selected charismatic men or women in leadership positions; it is also the activity of ordinary men and women when they act upon the latent potential within them, to lead.
To develop leadership and administrative skills within people for the mission of the church and the kingdom of God. Effective leadership is supported by sound administrative activity. To provide a place for developing administrative skills across a broad range of practice including strategic planning, human resource management, organizational dynamics, and financial administration. To assure that leaders in the local context, which is the frontier of the mission, receive excellent support in leadership development as well as those who serve in institutional settings. To provide leadership development and resources to our communities as well as to church entities.
What is the vision for ANLA?• Our vision is to transform ordinary followers into significant leaders and to empower them by Christian principles to enable them to provide outstanding leadership for the local church and the kingdom of God throughout the world.• The Academy provides these leaders with ongoing leadership development based on the servant leadership model of Christ.
• Our academy promotes and pursues a biblically based model of servant leadership.• A place for academics and field practitioners to link in a process of Biblical reflection that shapes the church’s understandings of leadership and clarifies transformational leadership development across all race, gender and culture divides.
The 3-C principle of development• At ANLA we seek the transformation of persons in the context of leadership development and see the development of leaders on three distinct levels:• The first being transformation of the person (character),• The second being development of leadership traits (capacity),• The third being the formation of administrative skills. (competency)
