Leadership in Biblical Focus - a short course at Wesley House
A 6 week online course from 15 January to 2 March 2018
What does it mean to be a Christian leader? How do we identify and empower leaders? This course will explore some of the models of leadership that we use, and how well they serve the modern church. Together, we will examine the stories behind some of the leaders in the Bible, and ask what lessons (good and bad) they have to teach us.
Considering such questions as:
What can we learn from biblical leaders such as Deborah, Samuel, David, Peter, Paul, Timothy, Stephen and Junia?
What kind of leader was Jesus, and would he win any leadership awards today?
Overseers, elders and deacons - is ordination biblical?
How (and why) did the early church move from charismatic spontaneity to organised structure, and should it move back?
Through the lens of leadership, there will be opportunities to undertake biblical exegesis under the guidance of leading Methodist biblical scholar, Rev Dr Catrin Harland. This course is particularly suitable for lay and ordained church leaders.
This online course will run for 6 weeks, at a cost of £250. Participants are asked to set aside approximately 4 hours study time each week.
