Today’s churches, parachurch organizations, and businesses require leadership that is transformational. In this course, Dr. Mark McCloskey, professor of transformational leadership at Bethel Seminary in St. Paul, explains his 4R model of transformational leadership. The model provides a biblical framework for leadership based on the cardinal virtues. Dr. McCloskey explores practical ways to use the 4R model in the process of learning, teaching, and practicing leadership. He shows how leaders can apply these lessons to a variety of leadership contexts. Even those who do not have formal leadership roles will find this course informative and practical as they influence churches and organizations where they are members.
