- To become aware of new trends and literature in their vocation.
- To be challenged and encouraged through dialogue with fellow professionals.
- To acquire a master degree which is practically rather than academically oriented.
- To enhance their ability to communicate the Gospel.

Partnership with CREST Leadership
CREST Leadership is pleased to announce that a strategic partnership has been signed with the Canadian Graduate School of Ministry which allows CREST students to fulfill requirements to earn a degree.
This degree has two entrance requirements:
- Completion of the CREST Leadership Program
- a Bachelor degree
The CREST Certificate in Leadership - 8 Encounters over two years - is the major portion of the Master’s curriculum. In this portion of the curriculum we cover the life development of the leader, and leadership practice in organizations. Practical skill-sets are given to the leader they can immediately use in their context - whether ministry, charity or business.
For the Masters, an additional 4-day Intensive is required in which Leadership Theory is presented. This portion is led by Dr. Terry Young, PhD in Leadership. This adds the theory to the practice.
Then the student writes a major paper, 30-50 pages, which summarizes who they are, and their leadership philosophy.
The tuition for the Master in Christian Leadership for CREST alumni is $3000. Alumni of the CREST Leadership Program are invited to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 403-731-5268 for more details and the application form. All fees are subject to change, however, once accepted into the program, your price is guaranteed.
