Leadership is made of a thousand good decisions. Leadership is what the leader does. Living in an era of high expectations the leader must understand the context of leadership, the approaches to church leadership and how to turn leadership goals into everyday practice. Special focus will be on the leader in context—how to lead in a specific church at a specific time.
What Others Have Thought:
"This was a very practical class that helped me to rethink my organization and patterns of doing things. This was a week of stepping back from active ministry, deep thinking and reflection, reconnecting with friends and an opportunity to rest."
"The practical information of the course is invaluable. Ideas on finances of the church, formal/informal structure, understanding the value of paradigm shifts, and dealing with dysfunction will especially help me assess the overall thinking/behavioral patterns of my church."
students will provide a summary on how their preaching will improve as a result of the input from the seminar. As well the students will complete an interactive course project that will be given at the beginning of the seminar.
