PT653—Leadership Here and Now

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): The Rev. Dr. Robert (Bob) Paul

You are equipping yourself in faith for vocations in and beyond congregations – vocations of love, service, sacrament, reconciliation and compassion. There are challenges and opportunities for anyone called into vocations of guiding, nurturing, creating, building, serving and sustaining communities of faith and service. The effective leader has advanced skills in understanding, navigating and working within complex communities. Building on and advancing the skills acquired in the Leadership Studio (PT651/652), this course examines fundamental issues of leadership through the practice of self-reflection and group process and through the lenses of generational analysis and theological frameworks.

This course is required for all MA-PPL and MDiv students. The Leadership Studio (PT651/652) is normally a pre-requisite for this course for MDiv and part-time MA-PPL students. Fulltime MA-PPL students (and others with permission of an instructor) may enroll in PT653 and the Studio concurrently.

This course will take place over the Spring on-site Module: Thursday – Saturday, Feb.15-17, 2018
