Project LEAD

Wheaton Academy desires to develop and train leaders, not simply select them.

8 Ministry Teams – 3 Spheres of Influence

Project LEAD is seven teams comprised of seniors who provide service and ministry opportunities for the entire student body at Wheaton Academy. This program promotes, educates, and encourages young people to lead in ways that inspire others to be more like Christ.

The 8 teams include Project LEAD: Cross Cultural, Project LEAD: Global, Project LEAD: Local, Project LEAD: Spiritual Life (Worship), Project LEAD: Spiritual Life (Discipleship), Project IX, Student Council, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

The 3 spheres of influence: Wheaton Academy campus, local ministries, and global missions, taking students beyond the boundaries of their comfort zones.
