EVCP 810  Spiritual Factors of Growing Churches  3 Credit Hour(s)  

Online Prerequisite: DMIN 810

Growth and growing churches are the products of health, and the degree of growth is related to the vitality of that health directly. Unhealthy churches cannot sustain growth; therefore, health is imperative for growth and continued growth in a church. In this course students will examine the connection between being a disciple and making disciples through developing leaders in a healthy environment, and teach the church leader how to preach and plan sermons with an eye toward church growth. Students will also examine how Christian leaders can use innovative and methodical processes to develop shared vision, communicate it to internal and external customers, and translate it through the strategic planning processes into operative and effective action through analysis of the latest theories of vision and strategic planning in organizations.
