Overview
The Global Leadership Development Institute (GLTI) is a collaboration between Vision of Community Fellowship, Food for the Hungry International Federation (FHIF), and Canaan Global Leadership Center. Our purpose is to develop leaders to experience and spread personal and community transformation.

History
GLTI began in May 2009 with classes mostly in collaboration with FHIF seminars for "Hunger Corps" (cross-cultural community development workers). Over 1,000 students have been trained in these conferences. Beginning in October 2010, GLTI opened its online courses to the world.

Philosophy
The foundation for GLTI courses is a belief that all transformation occurs from the inside-out. Change starts in a person's heart and mindset and spreads to their family, community, workplace, nation, and world. We believe the perfect model and source for change is Jesus and the Kingdom of God.

Vision of Community
Similar to personal transformation, there is a natural way for communities to grow - we call this vision of community. The essence of Vision of Community is that a community's churches, leaders, and families can grow by themselves towards God's Kingdom.

How the online courses work
Most courses are 5-6 weeks long. Students are given a reading assignment and questions each week. They post their answers online and comment on the other student answers.
