Management of Christian organizations, institutions and non-profit organizations is of paramount importance and they share similarities with secular organizational management. There has undoubtedly been an increasing requirement for skilled and professional management experts in religious communities and Christian organizations. Management has become essential in these organizations, equipping aspiring leaders with the necessary techniques and tools to handle different managerial issues successfully.
The programme is designed to acquaint students with core management principles, analyze and evaluate problems, and construct and implement solutions in the dynamic management environment. The course will help perform teamwork and leadership skills and develop an understanding and appreciation of ethical principles with Biblical standards at the professional and community levels. It relates to ministry administration and how to apply them in life. It will also help equip the students with the skills to faithfully administer and steward a ministry or non-profit organization.
This course presumes that leadership is a biblical given, and the cultural mandate requires it (Genesis 1:26-28). Biblical leadership is the skillful initiative one or more people take in a synergistic partnership to influence others toward accomplishing a shared goal. Hence, it will trace the biblical leadership model and explore the theological implications of the various leadership models offered for the Church and Christian management.
This course will deal with the relationship between management and strategic leadership and its effect on decision-making. This course aims to offer different definitions of strategic management and discusses the impact of strategic management and leadership on strategic decision-making. This course will help students to discover new ways to harness their various talents to meet the needs of the project, team, or institutions/churches.
