Working Together

This module encourages engagement with a hermeneutical approach grounded in the Holy Trinity through a number of traditions.

We critique biblical examples of ministry and working together through disciplines of sociology, psychology and organizational studies and examine the implications for understanding the forms of authorised ministry and the role of the laity.

Throughout, we examine a number of contemporary approaches to leadership, including distributed and liminal leadership for their historical antecedents and practical application. A focus on relationships highlights both the significance of followership and the importance of internal and external boundaries: the latter are examined from the perspective of ecosystems.

Students are encouraged to understand themselves and each other better through the use of a profiling instrument and consideration of collaborative ministry models.
