The Character & Habits of a Leader - Fall 2017

This course is not about management, although the principles discussed will certainly affect how you manage. Instead, this course is about becoming the kind of leader whom others will want to follow. Whether you are a veteran leader or just beginning your trek, a leadership expert or a novice just beginning to study the subject, this course is your invitation to climb higher and grow deeper.

In this course, we will study the lives of five biblical leaders—Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, and Paul. Our goal will be to discover what character traits are required of mature Christian leaders and how they relate to the task of being a leader in the local church. The course will also help you develop a plan for personal evaluation and the strengthening of character.

Format:
Seminar/Independent Study

Meetings:
6 seminar sessions designed to guide and deepen your own research. The class will meet every other week on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:30PM, September 11, 25, October 9, 23, November 6, 20.

Instructor:
Pastor Mark Wheeler

Assignments:
During the course, we will read one book and work together to develop an expanded profile of a biblical leader.
