Many pastors and other persons in faith communities are challenged to lead groups of people without ever being effectively trained to do so. On the other hand most leadership training available applies, often exclusively, to the business community not taking into account the unique nature of faith communities. This course will focus on the art of congregational leadership.
The purpose of the Faith Communities and Missional Leadership short course is to nurture Christian leaders in faith communities, congregations, as well as other sectors. The course will give you the ability to reflect critically and be able to integrate your own narratives and spiritualties, with an understanding of institutional and contextual environments. Furthermore, you learn how to engage in hopeful, innovative and transforming ways with communities and gain certain insights, tools resources and capacities.
