A Leadership X event is a bundle of experiences packed into an intense three days and four nights — all intended to challenge one’s thinking and build lasting friendships with other leaders from around the world. Sessions are held in unique, world class locations.


The Experience

Participants experience top-notch theological teaching in unique, world class locations, while being given the opportunity to engage in the application of those truths. The presenters, coaches, and peers all guide participants toward a better understanding of their calling as Christians and marketplace leaders. Many lifelong relationships are forged at Leadership X events between like-minded peers who understand each other’s passion for the marketplace.

The Participants

Participants are nominated from within the existing alumni network and by key partners. The application process is rigorous, and the number of participants selected is small.
