An important part of leadership is knowing your own strengths, styles and stages of leadership and where you are in your own journey so that you can lead and serve others well. This course includes practical assessments and instruction on how to understand your own leadership style, stage, and identify the leadership styles and stages of others in order to have the most effective working relationships. Goals of this course will culminate in developing a leadership dashboard along with a leadership growth plan.

This course is a survey of key passages, events, and themes that help us to understand the life of Christ. Specifically, who He is, why He came, and what He left behind.

Jesus redefined leadership and cast a mold contrary to what many in the world envision a leader to be... He served those He led. Throughout this course, you will examine biblical and modern-day examples that will shed light on the essentials of servant leadership. Your journey will take you from the heart-level raw ingredients to actual practices that will empower you to lead in ways that advance God’s kingdom purposes in the world.

The Bible is very clear on many matters and not as clear on others. For more than 5000 years, people have been debating what God’s “real” truth is. God’s clear truths, as well as what we believe as a church must be clarified, understood, applied and articulated in such a way that it shows the heart of Christ Fellowship and more importantly, the heart of Christ.

Arguably, the most influential New Testament Book Christians use for the presentation of the Gospel is Romans. Participants will gain in-depth understanding about this book and its author: The Apostle Paul. Emphasis is placed on a general overview/study of the Book of Romans and the communication of themes in Romans. This course will enrich participants’ appreciation for this theologically robust book and strengthen their study and communication skills.

Today, after 2,000 years, Christianity is the faith of one-third of the earth’s population. From a handful of ordinary fishermen, tax collectors, and youthful troublemakers in an obscure province of Judea, Christianity has spread over the globe to claim the loyalty of nearly a billion inhabitants of our planet. This course is designed to show how that happened and to make the church's past, present, and future come alive by treating it as a series of spiritual movements orchestrated by an extraordinary God who uses ordinary people who are passionate about impacting the world with the love and message of Jesus Christ...everyone, everyday, everywhere.

This course will cover strategies and processes for growing healthy teams that will in turn organically reproduce themselves. The course will be taught from two different perspectives, internal service facilitation teams and externally focused mission teams. Students will learn to identify and correct common dysfunctions of a team. Students will also be guided through healthy and productive steps to build a team, and be equipped to “go” and develop teams that will glorify God.

An introduction to the foundations of organizational leadership, including types of organizations, organizational structures, strategic planning, theory of motivation, the power of organizational culture, change theory, and organizational life cycles are all topics that will be presented throughout this course. Practical application will focus on areas such as leading organizations through change.

Effective leaders know how to communicate effectively. The students will learn how to develop, write, and deliver a message that has lasting impact and is appropriate for the audience.

Leading & Loving People is a course designed to equip students with the best methods in responding to and resolving issues in a variety of situations within ministry. There are foundational tools that are appropriate and useful in interpersonal ministry conversations, and this course will equip the students with those foundational elements. Other practical topics include guiding principles for challenging ministry situations and conflict resolution. This course will also bring to light topics that provide a greater awareness of multicultural diversities. For every ministry leader, there are seasons and rhythms that affect both the ministry and the home life. This course also provides leaders with tools to understand and prepare for those seasons and to intentionally develop plans for balance and purposeful “unbalance.”
