Summit Academy

Discover Grace. Live and Lead Well.

Summit Academy equips people to live and lead well, by helping them discover life-changing truths about grace and leadership.

Two courses are available:  Leading in Grace, and The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. Each course will meet weekly for fourteen weeks (with one week off for reading week).


The greatest decision you ever made was receiving God’s love and gift of salvation. But what comes next? How does Jesus impact your life? The good news is that God’s acceptance of you is just the introduction to Grace.


In the book of Romans, the Apostle Paul laid out plans for an exciting journey with Jesus, a journey wherein we discover hope, healing, and a new way to live and lead.


Over 14 weeks, we will meet and dive into the heart of this great book. We will move verse by verse through Romans 5 – 8 and discover powerful truths about who we are, and more importantly, who Jesus is in us.
These two concepts will not only change your understanding of the Christian life, but they will revolutionise how you lead.

21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

Course Overview

The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, by John Maxwell, is widely regarded as one of the best books on leadership ever written. Simple, practical, and rooted in real life experience, this book has helped a generation of leaders to grow in influence and impact.


Over 13 weeks, we will meet weekly on Monday nights, delving deep into Maxwell’s ‘laws of leadership’ through in-class teaching, small group discussions, and with regular contributions from high level community  leaders.


Whether you consider yourself to be new to leadership or are a veteran leader, this course will help you grow your leadership to a new level.
