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.
Additional resources will be provided during the course of the class.
There is an overall learning arch that has been planned throughout the certification in Church Administration. Each course builds on the one prior.
Learners are required to have these books for this class:
- The Way of Jesus Compassion in Practice by Frank Rogers, Jr
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
