Spiritual Formation as a Leader
July 2 - July 31
Offered by Christian Women’s Leadership Center: National Woman’s Missionary Union, auxiliary to Southern Baptist Convention
Christian Women’s Leadership Center (CWLC) exists to engage Christian women in discovering and developing their leadership gifts and skills through holistic learning experiences so they may serve effectively as God calls them in life, the marketplace, the church. Designed for women leaders who desire for their leadership to be rooted in their relationship with Christ and based on biblical principles . . . .flexible learning opportunities for women with busy lifestyles and multiple responsibilities.
Spiritual Formation as a Leader, taught by Dr. Noel Forlini Burt, lecturer at Baylor University, challenges participants to look closely at the role of grace in their lives and to accept the invitation to go in the way of peace as they lead.
In this online course, we’ll seek to understand how our leadership style may reflect our spiritual formation. Participants can be online at any time of the day or night. Discussion boards and forums are open once the assignments are given but can be accessed at any time. We recommend that participants try to complete each week’s assignments (about 3 hours per week) within the week they are assigned in order for participants to pace themselves to complete the course on time; however, the schedule is flexible.
- Look at a definition of spiritual formation and the love of God
- Discuss the connection between loving and being loved
- Compare and contrast two biblical characters who were given invitations to follow Jesus
- Reflect on receiving God’s grace in places that hurt
- Discover what’s entailed in going the way of peace
