The mission of The United Methodist Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. This course is designed to help lay servants, as well as other church leaders, consider some of the basic requirements of Christian transformational leaders in responding to this mission. Each chapter is based on scriptural foundations that undergird disciplines of Christian transformational leadership as well as best practice models of leadership with a specific emphasis on congregational vitality.
This course is a ten-hour offering for people who are seeking advanced certification as part of their lay servant training. Learners will engage in study of Scripture, self-evaluation of current leadership skills and disciplines, and discernment of new practices for leadership development. The course is intended to help participants engage in personal and group reflection and assessment.
