Elizabeth Glanville, a member of the School of Intercultural Studies faculty since 2001, directs the doctoral studies department and teaches leadership. Previously she was director of a training center for families home schooling their children, and a course writer, administrator, and director of Vineyard Bible Institute, where she helped develop a correspondence program for leaders in Vineyard churches around the world.

While auditing a leadership course at Fuller in 1991, the Lord spoke to Glanville about being “a leader, not just the wife of a leader.” At that time she completed her MA and PhD with a focus on leadership development, specifically for women. She has presented papers on women in leadership for a number of conferences, including the conference of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) in November 2007. She presented her paper on “Breaking the Dividing Walls” at the IAMS Conference in Malaysia in August of 2004. She will present a paper on “Missiological Reflections on Difference: With Reference to the Gospel of Luke and Jonathan Sacks” for the International Association of Mission Studies (IAMS) in Hungary (2008), to be published in 2009. She has also written over 25 courses for Vineyard Bible Institute, and two courses for Fuller’s Individualized Distance Learning program.

Glanville’s courses include Formation of Emerging Leaders, Developing Leadership Giftedness, Gender Issues in Leadership, Foundations of Leadership, and Introduction to Research Design. Currently she is teaching modules for the Doctorate of Missiology program on leadership, research design and qualitative methodology, as well as mentoring a number of doctoral students.
