Advanced Studies in Leadership for Mission
This course deals at an advanced level with contemporary approaches to leadership, missiology; and theology. The course is designed to enhance students' ability to approach each of these core elements in leadership in the context of religious organisations in a discerning way. It also provides an integrated approach. As a result it is expected that leaders will be able to provide a critique not only of various approaches to missiology, leadership and theology, but also to any lack of appropriate integration of these elements in their own leadership or that of others.
