Former Professor of Christian Education at Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, Texas
What is leadership? How do you make effective decisions? How do you motivate those around you? This course answers such theoretical and practical questions by examining the administrative process, including goal setting, organization, delegation, human relations, group dynamics, supervision, and leadership training. Though administration principles are universal, the course focuses on Christian organizations, particularly the local church. The course is designed to help students become more effective church leaders in both theory and practice.
Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to:
- Understand, in a broad sense, the theory and philosophy of leadership.
- Develop a proper understanding of leadership responsibilities such as ethics, motivation, planning, and administration.
- Gain insight into the principles of educational administration with special focus on leadership training in the local church.
- Apply principles of group dynamics and leadership techniques in order to become a productive Christian leader.
