This unit explores skills and issues in congregational leadership. A variety of real-life ministry case studies will be presented for students to engage. Through experiential methodology students will identify issues, explore a variety of responses, and engage in critical reflection about the theological and pastoral dimensions of each case. A variety of congregational and pastoral issues will be explored, eg. leadership for change, addressing conflict, gender and power, vision and planning.
The unit is class-based on Tuesday evenings, from 6.00 to 9.00pm.
