P7365 The Transformational Leader

This unit examines the nature and practice of leadership, which has personal and organisational transformation as its primary object. Participants are challenged to develop a biblical model of leadership based on Jesus’ ministry, and to develop an intentional strategy for their own ongoing spiritual and personal nourishment. The unit studies the traits, functions, styles, character and ministry formation of a leader, transformational and transactional leadership, biblical models of transformational leadership and the lifecycles of movements, and the gospel as a life-giving reality and ministry as a life-giving activity
