The Advisory Board, Board of Directors, Executive Director, Instructors and Staff of the Gulf South Leadership Institute are committed to the maintenance of a leadership resource center where Christian character and positive values are foundational to training and education. The Institute’s leadership training and consulting programs are tailored to provide knowledge, skills, and values which result in students and clients:

1) Possessing leadership qualities which motivate them to function within the leadership ministry of the church and/or business environments, as well as the community at large, in a way that advances ethical leadership and management practices.

2) Passionate about influencing the religious, social, educational, and business communities with leadership and management principles and moral character consistent with the life and teachings of Christ and His apostles and their code of ethics.

3) Engaging actively in their communities as citizens who are concerned about the quality of life for all.

4) Successfully pursuing the attainment of personal and professional goals, and promotion within their field of endeavor.

5) Striving towards a legacy for the next generation by supporting and actively engaging themselves in the training and development of young leaders.

6) Cultivating an awareness of the inter-connectedness of nations and peoples and seeking opportunities to promote peace, goodwill, and the enrichment of life within the global village.

The training and development of leaders takes place in learning environments which include, but are not limited to modular class meetings, seminars and workshops as well as consulting environments. Most of our volunteers assists in these learning environments as instructors, coordinators and organizers as well as management consultants.

Mission Statement: 

The mission of the Gulf South Leadership Institute is to ignite innovative, healthy, and progressive leadership and management practices within various social contexts.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

The Advisory Board and Board of Directors agree the Institute will be guided by no creed but the Scriptures and teachings thereof, which inspire the following core values:

THAT GOD is not only the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent Creator of the universe, but also the loving Father, Provider of all life, and righteous Judge.

THAT THE BIBLE is God's divinely inspired revelation to man. These Holy Scriptures are not to be added to, nor subtracted from, by anyone.

THAT JESUS is the Christ, the Son of God, who came to earth in the fullness of time, as Savior and as Messiah. This same Jesus is recognized as the only begotten Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, crucified on the cross after a sinless life on earth, raised bodily as Lord from the tomb, ascended into heaven as King of Kings, and is coming again to reclaim those who have accepted him by faith.

THAT THE CHURCH is the divine institution by which God has provided for the preaching of the Gospel and the salvation of the world.

THAT THE UNITY of all followers of Christ can be realized on the basis of a return to the original pattern for Church doctrine–in practice, in polity, and in life as seen in the New Testament.

To this end, it is the intentional goal of the board members, staff, and instructors of the Gulf South Leadership Institute to endorse unity, by promoting learning and networking environments for leaders from all social sectors of life.
