About the Program

Emerging Kingdom Leaders (EKL) is a program for incoming freshman at Trinity International University. Each year 25 students are chosen to join the Emerging Kingdom Leaders program at TIU. It is designed to give students an opportunity to experience life as a student leader from the very beginning of their time at Trinity, while learning foundational principles and practices of Christian leadership along the way. If you have been involved in leadership activities in your High School or Youth Group, we would love to talk to you about the program. Apply Now for a spot in the EKL Program 2014-15!

Highlights of the Program


How many students are chosen?
25 students are chosen for the EKL program each year.

Will the time commitment be too much for incoming freshman?
The EKL staff understands how critical it is for students to start off on the right foot academically. The program is designed to be about 2-3 hours a week, making plenty of time for students to attend to their academic studies. 

When do students who are part of the EKL program move to campus?
Students selected for the program will move to campus on August 16, 2014. This is a week earlier than other freshman. As a member of the EKL program, students are invited to participate in the annual Student Leadership Retreat for all student leaders at TIU (August 17-20, 2014).

Can athletes participate?
Student-athletes are encouraged to apply. Athletics requires a strong commitment of time, but we will to work with the student and the coaches so that student-athletes can be a part of the program.
