Faith in Leadership identifies emerging leaders within different religious communities and offers them opportunities to complement their spiritual growth with effective leadership skills. The Emerging Faith Leaders Programme (EFLP) introduces this new generation of faith leaders to the attitudes and qualities of leadership, using methods usually only available to high office holders from the private and public sectors. By bringing together the faith leaders of the future the EFLP enables them to learn and grow, side-by-side and encourages a new generation of faith leaders to recognise the best in themselves and one another to inspire understanding and cooperation.
