Using a combination of practical and theological experience, the presenters will aim to help participants better lead those to whom they are called to serve.
The course will be taught by Dr. Benjamin Haupt, associate provost and associate professor of Practical Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis; Dr. Luke Schnake, pastor emeritus of Christ Lincoln Lutheran Church, Lincoln, Neb.; and Dr. Ryan Peterson, vice president of administration at Concordia University, Ann Arbor, Mich.

Course format:

The course is fully online and features six modules over six weeks, with video lectures, optional readings, recommended assignments and peer discussion activities to enhance the learning experience. Each class will begin with a live Zoom discussion with the presenters and students. Each session will be recorded so students can view it later if they are unable to attend.
