Wycliffe College is pleased to announce a new cohort-based graduate program to help leaders in the church engage with and learn from some of the most recent work in the areas of missional leadership and formation. This program will be both theologically rigorous and thoroughly practical in equipping experienced clergy with training and skill development for the following tasks: forming Christians in a post-Christendom context, cultivating missional practices in stressed parishes, strengthening preaching and worship for mission, and leading in times of change.
Working as part of a cohort with others who have been in ministry for 3 years or more, the program is
designed so that current church leaders can develop and strengthen their leadership skills while
continuing in their full time ministry positions.
The program will consist of four courses taken together with their cohort. It will conclude with a project or written thesis.
The courses will use a colloquium format in which the cohort will read select material in advance, share from their own experience as leaders in the Church, and interact with other leaders to strengthen their skills. In addition to the faculty resources at Wycliffe this program will be enriched be the inclusion of guest lecturers in various fields of Christian leadership.
We encourage those who are interested in the program to speak with the leadership in their local church as well as their denominational leadership.
