The Graduate Certificate in Christian Leadership course seeks to develop a depth of understanding of business, theology, and professional leadership through the lens of a Christian world view. Students are encouraged to engage with each other and share their own workplace and life experiences. In this way communities of practice can be formed, further deepen the learning experience and build long-lasting support networks.

Graduate Certificate in Christian Leadership

The Graduate Certificate in Christian Leadership will give students a more in-depth applied knowledge to substantiate a leadership role. Graduates from this course can expect to be well-positioned to lead their professional learning communities and bring about positive change in their organisations and/or their own classrooms.

Course program

Christian leadership recognises that spiritual, emotional and professional development are closely interlinked, and that wellbeing and development of mature identity relies on the integration of character, values, and ethics, as well as application of one’s world view and cultural inheritance in the social and cultural context in which one lives and works.

Explore the key characteristics of Christian leadership and management principles. Develop your own metaphors and modes of leadership and management based on professional experience and world view perspective.

Explore matters relating to:

(i) human development across the lifespan

(ii) the interface between individual development and the broader historical, sociocultural context

(iii) socially and culturally sensitive counselling practice

(iv) how the spiritual domain of human experience affects development for those adhering to a faith world view.

Explore the concept of world view and the ways in which world views influence every facet of education. Students will consider the biblical world view and examine its impact on teaching.

In this unit students have the opportunity to learn about the overarching narrative which binds together the Old and New Testaments, and to reflect deeply on its personal implications for them as a teacher-leader, their world view, and their philosophy of education. The unit provides the analytic tools to develop a biblical theology, and to consider the ways that such analysis might influence practical appropriation of the text. It further provides students with the teaching skills to translate the Bible for others and reflect on its significance to Christian education and Christian educators in every sector.

Successful completion of bachelor degree or 3 years relevant work experience in the industry (education, business, leadership, Christian ministries, etc).
