History and Purpose

The Institute of Christian Leadership (ICL) was established in 1983 in view of providing on-going formation to all agents of evangelisation (i.e. clergy, religious & laity). While formation of pastoral nature is our major preoccupation, however, we appreciate any aspect of human development. It is our ardent belief that a human being extends beyond the spiritual sphere. Hence, the reason for choosing to network with organisations that focuses on other areas of human development. Provision of conference services is one sure way of ensuring that a holistic approach to the formation of persons is attained. For this reason, we provide accommodation, conference rooms and a cafeteria for resident guests as they pursue their workshops/ seminars/ meetings, etc.

Publication

Writing is one sure way of disseminating ideas and proclaiming the Good News of Jesus.To encourage this ministry, we aspire to establish a well equipped library tha t would be relevant to a wide range of topics in relation to the development of a person. In addition, provision of an internet technology to ensure timely accessibility of a host of information on the World Wide Web (www).
