WINTER INTERTERM 11/26 - 11/30/2018 -- What kind of pastoral heart is needed to lead in our current age? This course utilizes scripture, theology, and leadership studies as well as biography to explore the topic of prophetic leadership through pastoral engagement. A prophetic leader is a person of faith who feels a deep call to be prophetic in a particular situation, time and place; understands the biblical prophetic tradition; insightfully analyzes the present situation; imagines and projects possible futures; and seeks shalom and justice in the congregation and community of which he or she is a part. This course interprets and applies these five components of prophetic leadership in contemporary congregational and community contexts. Students will explore issues related to pastoring and prophetic leadership, learn from other prophetic leaders, and begin to articulate a prophetic vision of shalom and justice within their own congregations and communities.
