"As a school principal, I am aware of many leadership programs that are offered for students. I am cautious about advocating for programs I am unsure about. When I was working overseas, I received information about Elevate just after having finished Michael Lindsay's Faith in the Halls of Power. I was excited to see Dr. Lindsay's vision for developing young Christian leaders, and so I took a risk and nominated several students from my international school. Since then I have nominated around 15 students. Every single one has come back changed and motivated to make a difference in our school and, ultimately, in the world."
