Church and Ministry Leadership

Course Description

Many pastors and ministry leaders struggle when it comes to leading and managing people. And yet, without people—staff members and volunteers—a church cannot do the ministry that God calls it to do. Traditional seminary education gives little attention to managing people, post-seminary training opportunities are limited, and mentors are often pastors who have not received management training themselves. Pastors and other ministry leaders need practical training so that they can become more effective in one of their most important responsibilities. Join Mike Bonem, executive pastor, business leader, and author of five books on ministry leadership, and discover practical guidance for leading and managing people.

Created in partnership with the Church Leadership Institute and FULLER Equip.

This is a part of the Business of Ministry Certificate.
