ABOUT THE CERTIFICATION
A leadership void exists in many congregations through out the world, which raises concerns regarding the future growth, development, and well being of the church. Harbinger’s Certification in Leadership is designed to address church related leadership problems. Leaders are taught how to assess their own congregation and its community, other congregations, and mission points. Harbinger’s students learn best practices strategies, which equip them to hone their leadership skills to offer Evidence-Based-Solutions as they lead.
Students will learn how to examine critical issues that are involved in presenting and applying the Gospel contextually. Emphasis will be given to balancing faithfulness to the Biblical text within a culture. Principles from leadership, the business world, marketing, and Scripture will be applied to church leadership and ministry. The Certification will “stand-alone” as a credential or fit within Harbinger’s Master’s Degree.
This Certification is an 18-hour “stand-alone” credential but will transfer into Harbinger’s Master’s Degree which requires an additional 18-hours of graduate study.
