The WLC Story

Pastor Steve Kelly, former Hillsong College Director, established Wave Leadership in 1999, upon his arrival as Senior Pastor of Wave Church. Pastor Steve is a prominent international speaker and worldwide apostolic leader, and his vision for WLC is to equip current and future ministry leaders to pursue their God given destinies. Today, WLC students earn their Associate of Ministry degree within the walls of a thriving local church, with practical ministry opportunities and academic excellence provided by highly credentialed professors. The WLC story is well underway.

Equipping You for Ministry

Every Christian is a leader. Every Christian has a calling. Whether your calling is to full-time church ministry, the nonprofit charitable sector, or entrepreneurship, the fulfillment of your calling depends on the level of your equipping. Through our LEAP Program and our Professional Development Electives, you will become more equipped for your future. Serving and learning alongside other Christian leaders in a dynamic environment of growth and sacrifice is what makes WLC the perfect place to become all that God wants you to be.
