The Dixon Leadership Institute (DLI) is named for Rev. Gabriel P. Dixon
and his wife, Lollie. They pastored the Cote Brilliante Church of God and were very instrumental in the Church of God movement in the St. Louis area in preparing leaders for service and
ministry. The purpose of the Institute is to train and develop people in the area of leadership not only for ministry, but for business and other areas as well. The Institute sponsors
workshops, conferences, and seminars featuring some of the best minds in the leadership field to help others maximize their potential by learning and applying biblical leadership
principles. DLI also provides a lending library which makes resources available for use and study and is looking to partner with Mid America Christian University. Events are scheduled
periodically and are held here at New Cote Brilliante.
