Embrace Your Passion

In Partnership With Southeastern University

Generation Leadership College (GLC) is a 2-year program that includes an affordable, optional degree program through Southeastern University (SEU).

As a GLC student, you’ll be immersed in the culture of Generation Church and gain hands-on ministry experience—while also having the option to work toward an associate or bachelor’s degree.

What Is Generation Leadership College?

GLC equips you as a leader while giving you the option to enroll in SEU, an accredited private university, and work toward an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Ministerial Leadership (AML) degree through SEU.

On one side of the program is the formal educational component led by SEU.

The other side of the program is the GLC leadership experience led by Generation Church staff and the GLC team.

This allows students to get immersed in the culture of Generation Church and gain hands-on ministry experience.

Why Choose Generation Leadership College?

At GLC, you’ll receive individualized attention and personalized development from GLC leaders and Generation Church pastors and staff.

As a GLC student, you’ll:

  • Develop personally and professionally
  • Gain world-class leadership knowledge and experience
  • Learn cutting-edge skills in an area you’re passionate about
  • Stay close to home, be a part of your church, and attend college at the same time

Plus, you’ll have the chance to learn directly from Lead Pastor Ryan Visconti regularly. Students will grow in loving Jesus with their whole hearts while supporting the vision of Generation Church.

Most GLC students are between the ages of 18-29.
