LeadSM is ideal for students 18-25 years old who are graduating from high school; in college but not sure why; or college graduates who desire to have a season of life dedicated to God before they begin their careers. Students should display a strong desire to allow God to shape their life and be currently seeking opportunities to grow, lead, and serve others within their community.


LEAD CollegeSM is a unique educational environment that will challenge you to know, understand, and defend a biblical worldview. Your academic experience includes enrollment in Oral Roberts University, an influential Spirit-empowered university dedicated to equipping leaders who will impact the world with Christ's love and compassion.


Live on your own or with other LEADSM students in an apartment: You will be responsible for all of your living and personal expenses.

Mission Trip:

This cross-culture adventure will spur you on to deeper self-discovery and a vibrant, influential faith as you reach out and serve others. Tuition does not cover the cost of the mission trip which is usually to Southeast Asia. Cost of mission trip is around $2500 per trip


Yes students can work a part time job on Thursday nights, Friday, and Saturday. We ask that your job or school classes not interfere with your other commitments in LEADSM, as that is your priority. We will work with you to optimize your schedule.

If I do not desire to enter full-time ministry, is LEAD CollegeSM still the place for me?

The goal of LEADSM is to disciple, train, equip, and launch single young leaders into the ministry to which they have been called. LEADSM is designed to bring forth the next generation of worship and creative arts leaders, pastors, teachers, missionaries, entrepreneurs, and business leaders. Some graduates with a call to serve in a local church may go on to pursue full-time occupational ministry. However, the goal is to produce followers of Christ who are equipped to lead and impact their world for Jesus in whatever field they are called.
