The Wilberforce Academy, taking place at Sydney Sussex College, Cambridge England in September 2017, is a week-long training and membership program geared towards equipping students and young professionals for Christ-centred cultural reformation and apologetics in the public space. Delegates and graduates include those studying or working in law, politics, education, medicine, media, arts, business and church-related vocations. It is the chief goal of the Academy to prepare servant-hearted, gospel-centered leaders for public life, with a powerful and comprehensive scriptural-worldview foundation and the tools for effective engagement.
EICC founder, Dr. Joe Boot, continues to provide theological direction, teaching and leadership for the Wilberforce Academy, while working with a gifted team of scholars from around the globe who converge on Cambridge each year for this unique, full-scholarship training opportunity for all successful applicants. The EICC is proud to serve this important ministry with our team and theological resources.

“It’s been a fantastic experience – the people that we’ve met, the conversations we’ve been able to have, and some of the teachers we’ve had from around the world have been absolutely amazing – deeply challenging, deeply inspiring… any young, aspiring Christian leader needs to be on the Wilberforce Academy.” – Errol Lawson, Wilberforce Academy Graduate
