Effective Church Governance

421 Effective Church Governance

Local churches grow or diminish in size, maturity, and effectiveness based in large part on the way they are governed.  It is one of the major challenges a church faces.  This class will help students to consider and identify different models of church governance and their practical application in a local church setting.  This course will seek to help students understand the purpose and qualification for church leaders; explain the different kinds of church governance; identify the challenges of local church governance; and evaluate and provide suggestions to improve church governance in their local church.
