In the third course, learners will capture a clear vision for loving people as Jesus loved. Looking through the eyes of God, you will be able to identify and eliminate pharisaical attitudes within yourself. By reflecting on the impact of how Jesus changes the world through imperfect people, you will become more bold and confident as leaders.
Stepping into evangelistic leadership roles, participants will begin equipping the congregation to tell their Christian story to those outside the church. You will initiate seeker groups to encourage newcomers to engage with the life and ministry of the church. Areas of focus will include communication theory and skills, outreach methods and approaches, and models for assimilation of new members.
The instructor will offer optional Zoom meetings for discussion during the course.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
