Leadership is a biblical principle for the guiding and organization of structural units, such as the family, or a people, or governments. In the same way, healthy leadership is also a central key for the successful design of growing churches. The author, John Maxwell, minted the epigram, “Leadership is influence!” Healthy, spiritual leadership in the church should therefore always be designed for the reproduction of itself. We keep that in mind as we build our churches or other ministry structures, which are designed to influence others. In this practical course, the student will become acquainted with practical principles necessary for leadership development and multiplication.
