Contact Info: Lisa Buffum
Designed for Part-Time Local Pastors and Certified Lay Ministers, but open to any person, clergy or lay, this course focuses on the nuts and bolts of administration in the small church. This course will cover understanding your own style, the rhythm of the church year, annual reporting and preparing for charge conference, dealing with resistance, and leading change.
Course content is delivered primarily through an interview with Rev. Gary Moore, a recently retired District Superintendent and outstanding administrator. Students will gain a broad understanding of how they can more effectively get things done in the local church. There are also two live online sessions where the instructor presents material and interacts with students.
This course is one of the required courses for the Certificate in Congregational Leadership (CCL) program and is eligible for 1.0 CEU.
