Effective church administration allows each community of faith to operate to its fullest potential and creates space for all people to grow, worship, and serve. Attending to the details of congregational life involves organization and inspiration, along with conflict resolution and stress management at times. This first course in the church administration certification sequence allows learners to learn about compassion and love from Jesus’ example and how they can apply those outcomes to their ministry context today and tomorrow.
Weekly opportunities for virtual check-in will be available at a time determined once the course begins.
Learners are required to have these books for this class:
- The Way of Jesus Compassion in Practice by Frank Rogers, Jr
- Living Compassion: Loving Like Jesus by Andrew Dreitcer
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
