CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP 1
a 10-week class with Ryan Weingartner

This class covers both courses on Ecclesiology – Previously divided into Ecclesiology 1 & 2. The material is designed to not only establish the foundations of the "why" and "what" questions about the church - but "how" to make these practical in our daily living as "the church". Topics include the origin and mission of the church, how to create and implement structures that advance the church’s mission, and areas of ministry every church should be engaged in – worship, evangelism, follow-up, and discipleship. It will address several questions: What kind of people should lead the church? How much authority should they have? How should they respond to sin? Who should give money to the church and how should these funds be handled? What can we do to ensure that our ministry is built on a solid, lasting foundation?
Prerequisites: Students must have successfully completed Christian Ministry 1-3. You also should be currently leading or soon to lead a home group.
