CCL104 Leadership and EthicsDr. David Little & Dr. Susan DouglasTuesday, 6:30-8:30pm; February 6 – March 26, 2024
This course focuses on what Christian leadership looks like in the 21st century, and the ethics behind a Christian worldview. Using texts related to leadership and ethics, students will learn the differences between secular and servant leadership in the Christian worldview and develop a model for servant leadership for themselves and those they mentor. They will consider the ethics of Jesus found in Scripture and review the moral issues inside of Christian ethics. Students will also consider ways to apply leadership and ethics principles within their own context of work, ministry, and life.
CRM104 Partnership and Mission in Rural MinistryDr. Jonathan LeMaster-SmithMonday, 6:30-8:30pm; February 5 – March 25, 2024
Rural communities are rich with partnership opportunities for missions. However, churches tend to fail to see the potential and only focus on asking for donations or volunteer opportunities. This course explores the variety of partnerships that churches can form with other churches, local schools, businesses, and even governments. This course encourages pushing beyond the charity model to a communal hope model of mission.
