In a broken turbulent world change is an inevitable reality of leadership - both the leader and those led by a leader are all subject to the winds of change. Change can be both positive and negative, affecting all involved in the process internally and externally. Leading change requires the articulation of an authentic vision that motivates and casts direction. A vision must be cast in truthfulness and not deny the present realities of one's ministry setting. Rather than seeking to develop the "Hero-Pastor," this class will teach the Pastor-leader to mobilize a community of leaders, who will together become deeply involved in the formation of shared vision resulting in profound change or transformation of the church community.
