Phase 1 focuses on a 3-day program, divided into six half-day modules that can be deployed individually or in combination with other modules at the local parish or regional levels. The curriculum will go through two pilots in 2020 at regional conferences to ensure the material fosters an impact on the church communities that engage the program. Outcomes for participants include:
Achieving a better understanding of Christian leadership as doing the will of God in personal, community, church, and secular environments.
Becoming better leaders at home, neighborhood, job, and the parish, witnessing to Christ in loving service to others and helping to bring about his Kingdom.
Attracting and inspiring young adults to assume increased positions of responsibility in the Church.
Adopting a stewardship approach to life, receiving gifts from God, and giving generously to the needy.
Acquiring a better understanding of ministerial leadership and the co-leadership of laity and clergy.
Working together strategically in a parish, seeking to be the "city on a hill" witnessing to Christ and working in the Holy Spirit.
Mastering the everyday managerial aspects of community effort: meetings, councils, conflict, stewardship, ethics, finances.
Phase 2, scheduled for the 2020-21 academic year, will focus on extending the program at St. Vladimir's Seminary to develop an Organizational Leadership emphasis for the existing Master of Arts program.
