This course forms the basis of all Christian leadership. Our main course book is the Bible and understanding the plan of God as written in the Scriptures which will establish the spiritual GPS of the SCL course. The session includes Old Testament Survey - Pentateuch, Prophets, and Poets; New Testament Survey, and how to study the Bible (Hermeneutics).
This course forms the basis of all Christian leadership. Courses include: Thinking Like a Leader, Leading Like Jesus, Defining Leadership, Biblical Problem-Solving, Leadership Communication, and a Leader’s devotional life through daily devotions using the SOAP method.
This course will discuss, as 1 Peter 3:15 describes: “To be ready always to give an answer to every man who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you.” The world is asking questions about God, God’s purpose for their existence, why bad things happen to good people, morality, end times, etc.
This course gives each student a broad understanding of how the modern Church came to be ... from the early church fathers, the Crusades, Reformation, Schisms, denominations, revivals, and even the erosion and compromise of faith in our modern society... the need to comprehend the course of church history is essential to leadership. As one person has once said, “He who is a poor leader of our future, is a poor student of our history.”
These are the skills and competencies that any pastoral leader will require in carrying out his or her duties. This will include the necessity for each student to lead something – a ministry or a duty – in order to put to use what God has been teaching the student. This course will cover the basics of crafting sermons, weddings, funerals, prayer, etc.
Whereas the Leadership Essentials course will deal with what a leader does from 8 to 5, this course will explore how leaders must live from 5 to 8. This will cover the fundamental requirements of building godly character, healthy relationships, resilience, inspiration, necessary mentors, marital harmony, family issues, dealing with sin and repentance, and developing godly core values by which we live.
