A practicum takes what has been learned cognitively to the experiential level. A practicum for church leaders therefore takes biblical truth about leadership and applies it to actual leading.
Purpose of a Practicum:
So often we read an article of how we should function as leaders or take a course on it but don’t always see how it works out in real life.
- How does the training apply to the nitty gritties of church leadership?
- How do church leaders break through with the love of Christ, keeping it about ministry, and not mere management?
Process for Applying Biblical Principles to Practice:
In this particular practicum for church leaders, we will be running issues and tasks leaders typically must get involved with through the grid of the training on this site.
- How do we keep true to the leadership basics God laid out in His Word as we accomplish each task?
- How will leadership qualities near to the heart of God be demonstrated within the task?
- How can we effectively apply the various leadership skills God’s way, not in accordance with the standards of this world, as we perform these tasks?
