Today’s pastor is expected to assume a myriad of leadership responsibilities not anticipated during seminary. In addition to preaching and teaching, pastors are expected to oversee complex budgeting processes, manage personnel, maintain facilities, form strategic and long-range plans for growth and development, and promote the church through traditional markets and social networks. To equip you for these new demands, Luther Seminary has partnered with Augsburg College to design a week-long residential program in leadership and management fundamentals just for pastors and church leaders. By the end of this week, you will have developed critical management skills and nurtured significant professional relationships with other pastors and church leaders. This case-based, interactive course will provide opportunities to practice new skills that will increase your capacity and confidence to lead your congregation in the 21st century.
Join with other highly motivated leaders in discovering the essentials of:
* Finance and accounting;
* Communications and marketing (including the use of social networks);
* Human resource management;
* Organizational assessment, strategic planning, and project management;
* Personal leadership (e.g., productivity, strengths assessment and alignment);
* Cultivation of innovation and creativity in organizational life.
The Mini MBA from Luther Seminary and Augsburg College makes the best insights of an MBA program relevant to congregational life with a theological sensitivity you won’t find anywhere else.
