Church Administration 1: Theology and Time Management
Link to Register:
This four-week course explains the importance of a theological approach to church administration and why viewing it as a church practice with theological goals of discipleship, formation, witness, and worship matters. The course examines why church administration is a critically important component of pastoral leadership and competence and why it’s crucial for your pastoral credibility, trust, and authority.
The course draws on appropriate management excellence and know-how to serve as a tool for achieving theological goals. You will learn how to utilize management principles and techniques to make your church a more faithful church, rather than turning it into a secular enterprise.
This course is designed so that it can be taken by a single individual or with multiple members of your church leadership team. We suggest that you use this course as an opportunity to begin building your church’s foundational theology and practice of church admin with your leadership team as a whole.
The majority of the course activities will utilize a workbook that will allow you to reflect on your pastoral stewardship of church admin. Our hope is for you to walk away from this course with a clear plan that will help organize your work in the months ahead.
