Mt. Calvary Center for Leadership Development Established to Better Serve Citizens of S.E. N.C.

The Mt. Calvary Center for Leadership Development has been established through a dedicated group of leaders at Mt. Calvary University located in Burgaw and Wallace, North Carolina. Numerous grassroots community leaders contacted the University seeking help to teach and develop leaders across the region to better improve local communities and foster a next generation of leaders. The Center will help identify through the collaboration of community partners the need for more leaders in the business, nonprofit, and faith-based professions that desire to be of better service both civically and professionally.

The Center for Leadership Development is a separate 501(c)(3) entity from the University. Many programs available draw from the success of classes that have previously been offered through the University. Mt. Calvary University President Dr. Jimmy T. Tate stated, “Mt. Calvary has made another strong commitment to its Leadership Development programs by further expanding our offerings through the Mt. Calvary Center for Leadership Development which is a nonprofit corporation. We appreciate the input of so many leaders in our community who have helped this dream become a reality.”

The Center will not only focus on low income residents in rural communities where there is often high unemployment and low educational attainment, but will help existing leaders become even stronger leaders in their current and future roles including community and civic leaders, business and industry leaders, governmental employees, and other leaders gain the skills necessary needed to become successful leaders. Many desire greater leadership positions but often find they need additional training and often cannot afford travel expenses. Leadership training topics will focus on leadership development, budgeting, effectively conducting meetings based on parliamentary procedures, civic engagement, self-awareness, goal setting, effective communication skills both verbally and in writing, along with many other areas. Literacy efforts will also be addressed to improve the literacy gap that is often present in less metropolitan areas. The Center will offer Leadership Development classes to both adults and youth.

Classes are continually being developed and will begin in a distance learning format as a result of the current challenges related to COVID-19. The next Opportunity to Lead Program is scheduled to begin on Tuesday. April 28th from 5-7 p.m. Please visit the Center’s website at or call 910-665-1352 for registration and pricing information.
