Leadership in the Local Church

There are many roles that ministers play – teacher, preacher, equipper, pastor, shepherd, etc. Today a congregation yearns for the role of skilled servant leader in a congregational context. As the North American church leaves the context of Christendom behind and heads into a more missionary encounter with the culture, ministers need to gain experience in leading change. Making changes in congregations is a very complicated venture, requiring many different facets of leadership. In this course, we will examine the elements of leadership in a Christian context from a biblical and historical basis. Particular focus will be upon self-understanding, and what parts of leadership will be natural and which ones will need to be acquired. The syllabus can be found here.
