Course Overview

In collaboration with Dr. Aubrey Malphurs and the Malphurs group, Leadership & Vision Casting studies the models of biblical leadership and application of biblical principles in sharing a vision and communicating it to certain groups. Throughout the course, students will discover how leaders can develop a strong vision and share it for effective achievement of goals. More than simply understanding concepts of leadership, students will be challenged to effectively communicate as they consider the impact of vision to both individuals and organizations. Throughout their course of study, students will encounter topics such as:

  • The Credibility and Competency of a Christian Leader
  • The Influence of a Christian Leader
  • The Need for and Importance of Vision
  • Nehemiah: A Biblical Leadership Case Study
  • The Leader’s Effective Management of Time
  • Leading to Exceed Expectations

More than a course of study, leadership and vision casting is part of a God-ordained pattern throughout Scripture. This course is designed to help students understand the impact of effective leadership and the detriment of insufficient leadership, both in organizational structure and in the Christian walk. Everyone leads. How you lead may determine more than the direction of an organization or a church; it may dictate an eternal destiny. Lead on and lead well.
