CMIN 6143 - Leadership and Pluralistic Issues


3 credits

This course is based on the assumption that cross-cultural competency is essential on a personal level for meaningful human relationships and on a professional level for success as a leader. Church leaders and other ministry practitioners alike need to understand how to cope with the differing ideologies of modern society. This course examines biblically grounded principles and models that will enable the student to understand the extent and realities of cultural diversity, and thus to render more effective leadership in communicating the Christian message in a pluralist society. This interdisciplinary study deals with the leadership implications and strategies of the religious, ideological and cultural diversity that surrounds the church in its local and global context. Special focus is given to the nation’s growing ethnic communities in order to form an understanding of the purposeful inclusive nature and role of the church today. This understanding is critical for the church to accomplish its missional goal of leading the transformation of individuals, communities and cultures as an “alternative & counter-culture” community of faith.
