The degree is offered online with some face-to-face opportunities for learning, networking, and hands-on experience. All of Jakes Divinity School students will have face-to-face residency opportunities twice a year. The first is during the International Leadership Summit each spring of a given degree program. Students will arrive on site of the summit the Sunday evening prior and remain for a week until the end of the summit. The second residency will likely take place in Dallas, TX, at Jakes Divinity School in the fall of each year.
The Humanitarian Leadership major prepares you for leadership and service in both humanitarian crisis and relief organizations, as well as a variety of non-profit settings.
Students will be equipped with the knowledge and skills for disaster response, creating and serving in nonprofit organizations, and ministering to youth, children, and refugees in crisis. Graduates with this degree will also be trained in conflict resolution and negotiation.
This program also includes experience in an international or stateside practicum, integrating a biblical and theological understanding of compassion to those struggling in humanitarian crisis and relief situations.
