Overview

In LD201, Dr. Irving uses a threefold foundation for leading teams and groups in ministry: team-based leadership is grounded in biblical and theological principles, it is culturally relevant, and it is practically relevant. This biblical approach to team-based leadership offers a survey of contemporary literature findings for conducting effective team leadership, helping you identify not only the challenges that often arise in team settings, but also how to determine solutions for moving toward a shared goal.
