Cornerstone Initiative 2: UPH’s Commitment in Providing Christ-Centered Leadership Training For Student Leaders
Cornerstone Initiative - also known as CSI - serves as a foundation for student leadership, aiming to develop Christ-centered leaders.

Room D501 was packed with approximately 500 participants during the weekend of 15th-16th September 2017. These are our future leaders, including current organization leaders in UPH and mentors.

 

Cornerstone Initiative - also known as CSI - serves as a foundation for student leadership, aiming to develop Christ-centered leaders. Students are encouraged in discovering their calling in life and enriched with strong foundations of character before they step into more advanced leadership trainings or serving in any organization in UPH. Emphasizing the fact that being a servant leader means stewarding their gifts to shepherd others in Christ, students are equipped with a pedagogical training rooted in a biblical perspective.

 

Through the overnight stay in campus, Mr. Curtis J Taylor, Mr. Christian S. Jaya, Mrs. Gunawaty Tjioe, and Mr. Andry Panjaitan provided content-rich sessions in laying the framework of the leadership training. The leaders were pleased with the enthusiasm. To ensure that the content provided will be applicable in their daily lives, participants were given time to share their concerns and experiences regarding the topics within their mentoring groups and through several activities.

 

As the year progresses, our focus for Cornerstone Initiative graduates remains the same. We hope that through CSI, future leaders would be Christ-oriented leaders, taking their gospel mandate with them wherever they go. This is not the end - we are looking forward to enrich more student leaders in the years to come. (GE)

 

As student leaders, they are in the most strategic position to extend the UPH vision to the entire student body, and as an institution, we must be intentional in creating this echoing effect. The ultimate goal of the Cornerstone Initiative is to lay the biblical foundation for leadership; leaders with an understanding of their true identity and calling, serving Christ by stewarding their God-given talents to shepherd others. Leaders that lead with a vision of transformation and do so because they have been commissioned by Christ, the true Cornerstone.
