"LIFE'S MOST PERSISTENT AND URGENT QUESTION IS, 'WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR OTHERS?' "
Martin Luther King, Jr.
THE SHIFT FROM THE 20TH TO 21ST CENTURY
Contrary to popular beliefs, in these times whereas the transitions from the 20th to 21st Centuries can be felt by all of us "regular folks", it is critical for leaders to grasp emerging vision and relevant practices that will enhance our professional skills and increase our competitiveness as key leaders, providers, and educators in our local communities that are quickly changing to postmodern & globalized. NCIL meets these needs by providing a Professional Development Institute for people in Human Capital and Human Services Industries such as the Church, religious non-profit organizations, and religious educational institutions. At NCIL, "we bridge this mission and vision to practice" by providing online instruction, seminars, and on-site consultation by premier Instructors who also serve at the forefront of change as Senior Pastors, Non-Profit Organization Leaders, and Christian School Administrators and Educators.
