Global Citizens Houston Christianâ€™s Passport to Lead Program began in the fall of 2006 with the vision to inspire young people to lead by uniting their faith, intellect and gifts to allow them to reach their greatest promise. Through this program, our students are taught to take the lead to influence people to achieve a common goal and, through this process, honor God. Leadership topics are integrated into the curriculum of every course taught at HC. Biblically-based leadership principles are taught in Bible, literature, history, mathematics, arts and athletics.
