Event Location: Zoom
Event Type: TIM Centre
We live in a fast-moving, rapidly changing, unpredictable and sometimes confusing world. As church and ministry leaders one of our responsibilities is to make sense of this world and bring God’s vision, clarity and understanding to our people. This is perhaps one of the most challenging tasks of a leader.
Far too often Christian leaders have tried to make sense of the world through focusing on applying the behavioral sciences or business management concepts to churches and ministries – often without sufficient theological reflection.
This course is based on the belief that the foundation of strategic thinking, management and leadership is the relationship between God and the leader. God is the initiator in the strategic management process. He has a vision for His people and a plan to see His Kingdom come and His will be done – even in the turbulent times in which we live. 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.
This course will be held on 10 consecutive Thursday evenings beginning on January 21, 2021 and ending on March 25, 2021. Each two- hour session begins at 5:45 PM Mountain Time. Three days before each session, participants will receive a PDF of the workbook for the upcoming session and a Zoom link that will enable them to connect to the class.
