Summer Sessions

NEW COURSE: Leadership From the Shepherd’s Perspective – CCNL Elective

Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective explores the biblical concept of shepherd leadership and the belief that the timeless model of the shepherd applies, as does God’s Word – everywhere one influences and impacts others. The shepherd leadership principle is grounded in the three pivotal elements of Provision, Protection, and Presence. Shepherding is imperative to effectively influencing, moving, and leading from a fully biblically-based perspective from the Board room to on-site indigenous team members and volunteers, from the office to the field, and first-world to third-world countries.

During this course, participants will explore a shepherd’s responsibilities for leading literal sheep. They will dive into their personal leadership experiences, dig into Scripture to translate biblical principles into immediately applicable and practical behaviors, and create a customized Shepherd’s Operating Manual.

Faculty: Holly Culhane – Co-Founder and CEO

CCNL Stewardship – CCNL Required

The course is designed to provide the leader of a nonprofit organization an executive-level view of what is required for the God-honoring stewardship of finance, tax, legal, and people management and care. Attention to these foundational aspects of leading a ministry well is essential to establishing excellence and transparency.

This module is required for all CCNL program participants and is highly recommended for all executive directors, CEOs, COOs, CFOs, and Human Resource Executives. (Two sessions in Financial Management; one in Tax & Legal; two in People Management & Care.)

The Heart of the Leader – CCNL Elective

Defining our “why” is not an easy task. It requires soul-searching, understanding one’s core life values, and a desire for a destination that’s much more than pure profit or personal success. Because we believe that successful leadership begins on the inside, this course intentionally focuses on a leader’s heart motivation, our “why” first.

This course will explore critical questions every leader must answer, the 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 influencers.
