Unit overview and content

This unit builds on the skills and knowledge developed in THEO800 and LEAD800 to cultivate in students a specialised understanding of the intersections between leadership, mission, identity and community. Students analyse how it is that these areas are related to the knowledge and skills they have developed previously to explore themes of church and mission; mission and theology; leading faith communities; and mission and identity.
