The Heart of the Leader – BRAND NEW MODULE

Faculty: Phyllis Hennecy Hendry – President and CEO, Lead Like Jesus

Because we believe that successful leadership begins on the inside, this course is designed to intentionally focus on a leader’s heart motivation, our “why” first. Defining our “why” is not an easy task. It requires soul-searching, an understanding of one’s core life values and a desire for a destination that’s much more than pure profit or personal success. This course explores the critical questions every leader must answer, differences between a spiritually healthy and an unhealthy heart and how understanding and embracing our identity and an accurate self-awareness will make us much more effective leaders.

Fundamentals of Successful Marketing

Faculty: Kristin Smith – Vice President of Integrated Marketing and Development, Christian Aid Mission

Marketing is one of the most important tools in your organization’s toolbox. In this module, participants  learn the fundamentals of marketing and the importance of understanding their target audiences when designing and employing marketing strategies. This module is designed to help Christian leaders understand the fundamental elements of marketing and how they can help to differentiate the organization and its offering(s). It also provides guidance for effectively communicating to an organization’s target audiences. Upon completion, the participant will have a better understanding of the four basic marketing principles, and the role target audience knowledge plays in achieving marketing success.

Biblical Foundations of Development

Faculty: Mark L. Vincent, Ph.D., CCNL, EPC – Founder, Design Group International

This module explores the challenges of raising money in a way that is consistent with core biblical teaching. We will examine the image of a sower as a way to understand the work of asking for money, and our responsibility to be generous givers. On a personal level, this module will also provide you with a basic overview of Scripture’s teaching on money. You will also be encouraged to develop personal spiritual disciplines to help as you carry out your calling to Christian development work, and your personal commitment to be a faithful steward.

Biblical Foundation of People Management and Care

Faculty: Ray Chung – Human Resources Manager, HOPE International

This module considers the unique call of a Christian leader in stewarding an organization’s people, its “greatest asset.” The module covers a range of topics, including a Christian perspective on work, living out the New Testament’s “one another’s” in the workplace, the discipleship of employees, and key biblical examples of the importance of effective mobilization of human giftedness in furthering kingdom purposes.

CCNL – Leadership (Required for the CCNL Program)

Faculty: Tami Heim – President / CEO

The module is designed to provide the leader of a nonprofit organization an executive-level view of what is required for God-honoring personal, organizational and board leadership. Creating a roadmap, this module lifts a leader to higher thinking about the role of executive leadership and how senior leaders influence others, the organization, the board and those the organization exists to serve. This module is required for all those participating in the CCNL program.
