Online Class for Leadership Summit

How do we call out the best in church leaders to meet the challenges of the 21st century? The Global Leadership Summit, an annual conference of the Willow Creek Association, attempts to address this challenge. The main sessions will be held at the South Barrington, Illinois, campus of Willow Creek Community Church and telecast live to 225 locations across North America on August 5-6, 2010. The Summit features outstanding speakers from the church, academia, the workplace, and the non-profit sector.

For the first time this year, Central Baptist Theological Seminary offers an opportunity for participants to process the ideas and innovations of the Global Leadership Summit as part of a collegial group. Ircel Harrison, director of the Murfreesboro Center, will teach “Ministry Praxis: Global Leadership Summit 2010” (MP506e) during fall semester. Students will attend the Summit either at Willow Creek or one of the satellite broadcasts of their choice on August 5-6 and then participate in the class during the following months. The class can be taken for three hours academic credit or as a lifelong learning activity.

Students will discuss readings related to the Summit and leadership development, define their own understanding of leadership from a biblical and theological perspective, and develop a specific action plan for their setting.
