Online Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership: Ecclesial Leadership Major — Pre 2013
Designed to advance the academic study of organizational leadership in ecclesial contexts, the Ecclesial Leadership major explores the past, present and future of organizational leadership in ecclesial contexts. Our multi-disciplinary study combines the fields of leadership studies, organizational research, exegetical analysis, philosophy, theology, sociology, historical criticism and futures studies. Even though this major includes the historic disciplines of theology, the focus remains on the unique and particular contexts that ecclesial leadership and organizations face. As well as being challenged personally and professionally, students will be prepared to teach organizational leadership and, in particular, ecclesial leadership and organizational design at the university level, or conduct research in association with ecclesial groups, seminaries, nonprofits and mission groups.
The Ecclesial Leadership major uses an educational model that incorporates interaction with an instructor and other students.
