Pastor as Leader
Focusing on the pastor as leader, this class provides a practical framework for a pastor to understand, assess, and develop their own leadership competencies. Students will consider their calling as pastors, the necessity of character formation, and the formal theories that undergird their leadership. Emphasizing a personal faith that always matures and leadership skills that always develop, students will prepare to bring the best of who they are into the churches that they serve. The class will include personal assessments, practical tools, case studies, and healthy practices for effective parish leadership.
