MINISTRY LEADERSHIP CONCENTRATION COURSES

The remaining nine (9) credit hours required in the MBA program are taken in the Ministry Leadership concentration. Students pursuing the Ministry Leadership MBA concentration examine ethics in ministry leadership, team-building in ministry, and using marketing techniques to foster church growth.

This course examines current theories and practices of leadership along with an exploration of the thesis that effective and ethical leadership lies in a commitment to universal moral principles, including justice, integrity, and compassion. Challenges to this thesis are also examined. Specialized assignments focus on moral leadership in the church in a pluralistic world.

This class conducts a systematic examination of the psychological and sociological variables contributing to the comprehension of individual motivation, the managing of groups, interpersonal relationships, organizational effectiveness, creativity, and leadership within an organization. Specialized assignments explore the biblical foundations for understanding of ministry by all of God’s people and for leadership in that ministry. Students consider the biblical basis for the use of teams in ministry and in giving leadership to that ministry, resulting in an understanding of the values of the teams in ministry and strategies for the development of such teams in the local setting.

This course provides an introduction to the theory and practical application of marketing principles. Special emphasis is placed on developing a framework for analyzing strategic marketing situations by defining target markets and developing a marketing mix related to the market stakeholders of the organization. Specialized assignments focus on the practice, policy, and methods of church growth in local and worldwide settings, focusing on the sociological, anthropological, and ethnic factors at play.
