Wednesdays 2-5pm

Building on the skills and understanding of Leadership Foundations: Self As Leader, Leading In Context will provide method and opportunity to explore potential studio practicum sites that combine leadership challenges, ministry opportunities and demonstrate best practices in pastoral and public ministry. To be effective in ministry practice and leadership in the public sphere it is critical to understand the field and its demands, expectations and possibilities. Preparation for practice of ministry is not introduced simply as skill development but rather as the formation of leaders who will understand and respond to the continually changing landscape of contemporary ministry and navigate communities in the art of resourced and adaptive change.

This course requires concurrent registration in TFE1: Exploration – a student’s first unit of theological field education.  It should be taken in the Spring term prior to a student’s participation in PT651/652 Studio for Strategic Leadership and TFE2
