This course is designed to provide participants with a more advanced understanding of administration and its appropriate place in the Church as well as how to become more effective servants. It will allow for the development of skills necessary to establish a foundation for service along in accordance to the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Here, the student will learn biblically-based teachings on church administration as well as guidelines for service. Deacon Samuel will provide instructions, guidance, ideas and suggestions, when necessary.
This course is offered in an effort to guide church leaders and administrators and to give them the understanding in Christian administrative skills; ones that are theologically rooted in Christ. This course goes in depth with ways to do so and is compiled of three major sections:
Section 1: How a servant relates to organizations and peoples.
Section 2: How a servant performs administrative responsibilities.
Section 3: How a servant develops leadership and various skills.
Each course is reading- and writing-intensive and does not consist of lectures but instead is guided by one of our expert faculty, following this structure:
- A weekly spiritual journal submission of 1-2 pages analyzing and reflecting on the readings assigned for that week.
- A weekly 200- to 250-word discussion board post highlighting a feature of particular interest, contention, or insight in that week’s readings.
- Three (3) weekly 100-word responses to other students’ discussion board posts.
- A weekly writing assignment of 2-3 pages answering a specific question or fleshing out a particular topic assigned by the professor. Occasionally, quizzes will replace weekly writing assignments. There will be no additional assignments on weeks when there is a quiz, midterm, or final exam/paper.
- One midterm paper (5-7 pages).
- One final paper (6-8 pages).
