A Week in Berkeley - Course in Creative Leadership

I've just accepted an invitation to return to the Pacific School of Religion, a seminary affiliated with the Graduate Theological Union which happens to be the largest and most diverse partnership of seminaries and graduate schools in America. I will teach a one-week intensive course on leadership.

I am happily returning to Berkeley the first week of August 2009. The course details are below, and more detail is available on PSR's summer session webpage.

Catalyzing Creative Leadership for the Emerging Church
Instructor: Gerardo Marti, PhD
Date and Time: August 3-7, 2009; 8:30 am -12:30 pm
Course School Ownership: PSR

Units: Audit ($330.00)
2 Continuing Education Units ($355.00)
1.5 Semester Hours (General - $636.00; Current PLTS/PSR Student - $523.00)


This course explores the relationships between culture and the emerging church and the implications of these relationships for effective spiritual leadership.

In addition to references to church history and biblical scriptures, the course continually connects societal arrangements with contemporary innovation and experimentation in congregational beliefs and practices.

By incorporating scholarship rooted in a sociological perspective, the course also looks more generally to the ongoing changes and negotiations that the Christian Church always makes in relation to the broader social world.

Trust me, this will be an enjoyable week together, so if you can make it over to Berkeley -- a wonderful city during a beautiful part of the year in California's fantastic Bay Area -- please join us!
