The course is an excursion into various forms of organizational leadership in church and community. It includes prerequisites for leadership, defining leadership, and embodying leadership. The course lifts up the importance of the self and what leaders bring to leadership. It explores how people become leaders and the dynamics between leaders and the communities (organizations) they serve. Context is critical as well as theology or worldview. The course seeks to engage the soul of students. Why are they involved in leadership? What resolve attends to their visions, hopes, and paths? The course offers insights and strategies for an effective change of systems, structures, and self. It also holds forth alternative ways of organizing and being. Students will be introduced to ways of analyzing and implementing social change/transformation. Class pedagogy includes lectures, classroom discussions, small group discussions, and guest speakers from diverse social locations and ministry contexts who model leadership incarnating social change. An essential question is how do we create beloved community, a world that embraces all and works for all.
