The Ministry Leadership major is intended to provide students with skills and a background in leadership and how they should be applied in a ministry or other Christian activities. Ministry is defined broadly to refer to any situation in which Christians are worshipping, evangelizing, serving or studying aspects of the Christian faith. Ministry Leadership will be presented in the broad context of human knowledge and experience. As a result, both secular and Christian sources will be studied along with case studies and examples of leadership historically and currently in our society. As in all majors at Williamson College, students study Biblical Worldview, examining the role of general and special revelation, and looking at God at work in the modern world. A Christian worldview provides a deeper understanding of the opportunities and challenges in Ministry Leadership areas. The final course in the sequence, CM 489 Ministry Leadership Capstone (3 credit hours), is unique to Williamson College. This course is designed to help students consolidate the academic content of the program and to finalize their student portfolios prior to their graduation.
