To develop healthy leadership within church ministry, two areas need to be addressed. One is obvious. Leaders need to develop their leadership skills. This course addresses this area by focusing on common mistakes that leaders make to help future leaders avoid those same mistakes. Additionally, leaders need to develop their skills in managing people. An area that is often overlooked is the potentially unhealthy spiritual condition of church leadership. Beyond the skill set needed in church leadership, this course seeks to address the important character of church leadership through humble self-reflection and change.
