Ministry as a Profession, Fall 2013
This modular course will explore ministerial leadership from the perspective of work. Ministry is not a job, it is a calling, and yet the daily work of ministry provides insights into the nature of faith leadership as both a function and an identity. Topics will include the nature of ministry as a career, habits of effective professional ministers, leadership in conflict, and leadership styles. The course will have four sessions that each include a Thursday evening, a Friday morning, and a Friday afternoon. Each module will include content, reflection, guest speakers, and group work among course participants.
Fall 2013 – Course sessions include Thursday evenings from 6-8:50; Friday mornings from 9-11:50, and Friday afternoons from 1-3:50. Modules will take place as follows:
Module I September 19-20
Module II October 17-18
Module III November 14-15
Module IV December 12-13
