Leadership Coaching Series

The Cape Cod Church summer internship program aims to develop future church leaders who will in turn inspire communities to live fully for God. As part of that mission, we want to give you opportunities to grow your leadership skills through weekly coaching sessions with Senior Pastor Ben Feldott and select marketplace leaders.

The Leadership Coaching Series will give interns the unique opportunity to glean wisdom from a diverse set of Christian leaders. These men and women have experience effecting change in the church, classroom, missions field, business sector, and beyond.

Read on below for a sneak peak at some of the leaders on tap for this summer!

               Dick Yue                      Professor, MIT & Originator of MIT OpenCourseWare

 

Dick Yue

Dick K. P. Yue has been a faculty member at Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Engineering since 1983, and received his degrees (S.B., S.M., and Sc.D.) in Civil Engineering from MIT. 

Professor Yue served as Associate Dean of Engineering from 1999-2007. During that time, he originated the MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) concept, and played a major role in its adoption and successful implementation by MIT. Since its launch in 2001, MIT OCW has transformed the global higher education landscape. To date, MIT OCW has been translated into several major languages, has been accessed by over 100 million educators and learners worldwide, and has inspired and launched an international consortium (more than 200 institutions of higher learning from 47 countries) devoted to open educational resources. Finally, the introduction of OCW laid the foundation for the potentially revolutionary educational impact of today's Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

Gospel Implications

OpenCourseWare has made high quality education accessible for free all over the world. Dr. Yue uses the OCW model to spark ideas for Christian education, training, and evangelism. The new global generation is heavily influenced and connected by the Internet, and the church must seize this opportunity to think and act creatively and generously to reach the world with the Gospel.

Dr. Yue  is the Philip J. Solondz Professor of Engineering, the Skolkovo Foundation Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and Professor of Mechanical and Ocean Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Yues reside in Weston and Falmouth, Massachusetts where they have been a part of Cape Cod Church since its earliest days meeting in a storefront.
