Year-long Leading for
Transformation Certificate

Offered:
Fall 2013 - September 16 - November 6
Winter 2014 - February 03 - March 23

A certificate in Leading for Transformation includes:

  • 4 seven-week courses
  • Guided learning from a facilitator
  • Connection with other leaders through a learning Cohort
  • A pathway of learning
  • Certificate in Leading for Transformation

Participants will engage in the following courses:

MODULE 1: Leading for Transformation
An introductory course and holistic look at what it means to lead for greater transformation, in your own life and in the lives of others.

MODULE 2: The Leader’s Soul
A course designed for ministry leaders at every level, this course will explore new and healthy ways of fulfilling your calling.

MODULE 3: Shaping Culture
This course will take you deeper "behind the scenes" in the culture of your organization. Culture is often left unspoken, yet greatly impacts your effectiveness in carrying out your God-given mission. This course will help you better understand how to influence culture around you for greater effectiveness and transformation.

MODULE 4: Strategy for Transformation
Many churches are excellent at strategic planning, others do hardly any strategic thinking at all. Whatever the case, most of us can get better at leveraging each area of our ministry or organization for transformation. This course will not only touch on how you plan for ministries, but why you do them as well.
