The ELP equips Christian marketplace and entrepreneurial leaders for more effective difference-making in their spheres of influence.  The ELP is the premier course of its kind, based at one of the world’s leading universities, attracting Christian business people from around the globe, and taught by world-class Oxford and international adjunct faculty.

Now in its third year, the 2020 ELP will be held August 16-22 at the University of Oxford and is a one-week intensive and transformative experience for Christian marketplace and entrepreneurial leaders from around the world.  The goal of the ELP is to equip successful Christian business leaders to leverage their resources for greater difference-making in their respective spheres of influence such as business, church, non-profits, and society.

The ELP is designed for entrepreneurs, owners, and senior leaders of for-profit businesses with a minimum of 10 years' track record of success.  The ELP provides a dynamic and interactive environment, with learning from world-class instructors and from a global and diverse cohort of peers.

The ELP is offered in collaboration with Wycliffe Hall, a Permanent Private Hall of the University of Oxford. In addition to world-class instruction, the ambiance of Oxford is inspiring for ELP participants.  The 850-year old university city with its fabled spires and medieval colleges, along with various other attractions, is unmatched in the world.

ELP 2020 will have an outstanding faculty, including among others, N T Wright, world-renowned biblical scholar, John C. Lennox, Oxford professor and apologist, and Scott Rae, Professor of Christian Ethics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University.  The ELP cohort will have a unique opportunity to be a part of an intimate setting and engage in dialogue and Q & A with each of these renowned professors.
