In the Organizational Management course the student will be instructed and acquire the skills needed to oversee the administration of the church. The class will begin with the foundational principles of leadership in the church, the various personal leadership styles, and how to develop other leaders in the church. The student will then be taught concerning the importance, the mission, and practical steps of discipleship within the church. With the goal of implementing discipleship, students will also acquire the knowledge and practical skills to communicate affectively, adapt to change, manage people, delegate and keep others accountable, manage conflicts, build community, manage one’s personal life, conduct fundraising, understand the decision making process, and the topics of money, time, and information management, all within a church context.
