Advanced Studies in Leadership for Mission
This course deals at an advanced level with contemporary approaches to leadership, mission and spirituality. The course is designed to enhance students' ability to approach each of these core elements in Christian leadership 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 mission, leadership and spirituality, but also to any lack of appropriate integration of these elements in their own leadership or that of others.
