PTM 180 The Barnabas Principle

from 600.00

In many ways, parish leadership today remains a generalist vocation in the midst of an increasingly specialist culture. The rewards (spiritual and otherwise) in this work are substantial, but so are the challenges, and yet all too often ordained and lay leaders emerge from their theological formation with significant gaps in areas such as goal-setting, structural analysis, newcomer retention and recruitment, leadership development, community outreach, visionary budgeting, and financial stewardship.

In this course, we will use the character of Barnabas from the book of Acts as a model for the kind of innovative, holistic approach to Church leadership that is needed in our 21st century context, touching on all the areas mentioned above. Course participants will, through lecture and interactive exercises, discover theologically sound and realistically practical plans of action.

The Rev. Dr. C.K. Robertson.  3 credits.
