Executive Skills for Pastors

Monday, July 20 through Friday, July 24

California Lutheran University is offering a week of continuing education with faculty from the School of Management. In the complex environment of congregational management, we all can use new tools for ministry. This continuing education event for pastors will explore how concepts from a MBA program can be applied to the arena of congregational life. Each day, we will explore a different theme:

  • Stewardship
  • Leadership
  • Marketing
  • Technology for Ministry
  • Strategic Direction

This dynamic continuing education event will be limited to 20 registrants. Participants will be invited to bring a particular project or issue that they will focus on during the week. Through lectures, group work, and one-on-one learning participants will gain valuable and needed skills for their work as pastors in congregational settings. The participants will live, learn, worship, and work together throughout the week.
