Systems Theory

Sponsored by the Institute for Pastoral Leadership

October 1-3, 2012

Princeton Theological Seminary’s School of Christian Vocation and Mission


This course will be an experiential offering to address the reality that systems theory plays a significant role in church leadership. For leaders to be effective, it is wise for leaders to have a firm knowledge of systems theory and how it affects members in their own homes, as well as in church systems. A tendency for pastors to become complacent when things are going well in a congregation is when problems most likely surface. Leaders need tools to be able to be aware of systems theory and how best to respond to its interaction with ministry.
