STML 5110 - Healthy Systems in Ministry

2 credit hours
Formerly - STML 511
This course for clergy and Pastoral leaders offers an introduction to Family Systems Theory. It also seeks to show how systems concepts apply to the organizational life of the church and its ministry. It provides an opportunity for practical “hands on” use of the theory and is a time for reflection on the implications of systems concepts for pastoral leadership, personal faith, and theological understanding. Through this course pastoral leaders learn how family systems concepts can inform preaching, teaching, caring and administration functions in the church. Learning occurs through reading, lecture, discussion, and the sharing of family of origin and case study presentations. Majors only.
