Leadership Pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago

Leadership Pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago   [LEAD 0670]

  Course Dates: Sunday May 11, 2014 to Friday May 23, 2014
  Faculty: Dr. Arthur Boers
Course Description

The Way of St. James (Camino de Santiago) pilgrimage route in Spain is integrally related to leadership. James (one of the sons of Zebedee) was in the inner circle of disciples and an apostle credited with bringing the Gospel to Spain. During the last millennium, numerous leaders walked this route (including  Francis of Assisi, Dante Alighieri, Brigid of Sweden). People find their callings to be leaders on this path and learn invaluable lessons of leadership too: listening to the journey of others; sharing leadership; challenging oneself physically, mentally and emotionally; encountering God in unexpected ways; walking by faith; staying focused on a goal while working with others; building community and trust; and working collaboratively.

Over the course of eight days, students will walk the last 120 kilometers of the Camino de Santiago and be eligible for the much-coveted Compostela certificate offered by the Cathedral in Santiago.
