Ministry is a unique calling and a high privilege. It can be thrilling, invigorating and rewarding as one senses God at work in and through as an individuals. Much of ministry, as in life, is a walk of faith, requiring growth in leadership and continual self-management. This course will focus on several practical aspects of the life of a minister that are critical to his or her effectiveness in life and ministry. Selected leadership ideas/models, both those that are explicitly Christian as well as others, will be examined and each student will be asked to apply these ideas/models to their own ministry setting.
