COURSE DESCRIPTION: Spiritual leader is one who puts his or her faith and trust in Christ to help them learn and apply the Biblical principles of a Godly leader—and then lead others in the same path, by example. The timeless principles of spiritual leadership you will explore in this course have been gleaned from the book “Spiritual Leadership” by Dr. J. Oswald Sanders. Session one begins with exploring the justification for a person’s ambition for leadership. Some resist leadership and some run to it. Why some will fail and some will flourish has everything to do with motivation and ambition.
Over the course of 10 classes, each student will gain more than scripture references and knowledge. Each class is designed to help students discuss the real challenges leaders face in ministry—and develop confidence in the Bible’s advice and wisdom regarding spiritual compromise, selfish ambition, and faithlessness in situations that seem at first to be impossible.
