How can the resources of Methodist history and theology help us grow into leaders who reflect Christ not only in our churches, but also in our communities?

We invite you to join Duke Divinity School in “Forming Christ-Shaped Leaders,” the fifth of five courses in the Rediscovering the Heart of Methodism series, designed to help engaged laypeople and clergy (including local pastors in licensing schools) develop core capacities for innovative leadership within the Wesleyan tradition.

Each course includes four weeks of interactive video lessons from Duke Divinity School faculty and Methodist leaders, plus a course workbook PDF including exercises to accompany each video lesson and discussion guides for group meetings.

Through this course, we hope you will experience a deeper grounding in the distinctive elements of Methodism at its best, and a renewed capacity for hopeful, imaginative participation in the mission of God.
