Leadership for Catholic Adult Faith Formation is a graduate level course that will examine the foundations of leadership for adult faith formation that emerge from Scripture and Tradition and the Magisterium of the Church. The course will explore models of leadership that lead to personal conversion and public witness; study special questions about spirituality for the leader as well as for the student; and address current religious and moral questions that programs should incorporate. This course will use primary sources from the Vatican and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, but will also include the use of theological and spiritual resources that can be used by the leader within the adult faith formation setting. Students who complete this course should be able to connect the knowledge and skills they have gained in previous theology courses with the principles and methods needed for the practice of leadership in adult faith formation for parish or other Church settings.
This course includes written lectures, audio lectures, and online discussions.
