The African Biblical Leadership Initiative (ABLI) Mentorship Program is a Bible Society of Kenya (BSK) initiative targeting young Christian adults who are already operating in different spaces of leadership in church and/or their respective congregations. The program is being implemented by Emerging Leaders Foundation (ELF) – a Leadership training, mentorship and coaching platform that concerns itself with growing the next generation of value-driven and sufficiently tooled leaders for transformative change in communities throughout the Global South.

ABLI Mentorship Program is designed to impart mentees with skills to become effective community leaders committed to Integrity, Compassion, Cohesion, Justice among other Biblical Values.
