PC435/635 Principles of Leadership and Management

Where Christian organizations flourish there will be found a strength in leadership. Where Christian organizations fail to flourish there will be found a failure of leadership. This subject attempts to introduce Christians to some of the more theoretically and empirically sound leadership literature and assist the candidate to build theological foundations beneath effective leadership practices.

It would appear critical then that leaders are developed from the outset in the essential areas of character and competence required if one is to develop strong effective congregations and organisations.
