Administration and Leadership

Emily Click

Description

Students preparing for positions of ministerial leadership in churches, other religious communities or other institutions will be introduced to several topics under the broad category of leadership, including: leadership theory and practice for community adaptation; conflict: its resolution, mediation and benefits; organizational self-understanding, vision and mission; and organizational planning, finances, and record keeping. Attention will be paid to the theological and values considerations involved. The course will rely heavily on building a learning community. The course focuses more closely on leadership, but includes several sessions dedicated to crucial aspects of administration.
