Strategic Management

Certificate in Ministry and Organizational Leadership Students Sitting in Group Under Trees Smiling

Course Facilitators: Karl Mueller, Suzie Said, Albert Anderman, Lorinda Lee

As part of TIM Centre's  partnership with Development Associates International and Tyndale Leadership Centre, Strategic Management is Course 2 of 4 in the Certificate of Ministry and Organizational Leadership.

This course is based on the belief that the foundation of Strategic Thinking and Management is the relationship between God and the planner.  God is the initiator in the strategic management process.  As a result, Strategic Management is a journey in which God’s people follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, looking to Him for guidance, while making the best use of the human skills and resources He has provided us with.

The purpose of this Strategic Management course is to equip participants with an understanding of the critical importance of good strategy to the long term health of churches and organizations and how scriptural authority, biblical wisdom, prayerful discernment of God’s will, modern best practices and the use of our own gifts can be used to this end. By the end of the course you will have a framework and the tools you need to  “see” the world in which we live, discern God’s preferred future and move towards accomplishing His vision for your church or ministry.
