TMPS 7160 Management in Ministry (Summer: 3 )

Course Description

The administrative side of ministry is often overlooked and undervalued, much to the detriment of our mission and our ability to have a lasting impact. In this course, we'll execute a mad romp through the basics of working in (or managing) a faith-based non-profit organization, using Catholic parishes and K-12 schools as particular examples. Readings will be drawn from (for-profit and non-profit) management literature, with a liberal sprinkling of Church documents and (short) theological reflections. Topics will include: leadership and management; financial planning; human resources; fundraising; communications; making the most of technology, and more.

Schedule: Periodically

Instructor(s): Adam Krueckeberg

Comments: Summer 2018: This course will be offered June 25-July 12, Monday-Thursday, 5:45-9:00 p.m. Note: Given the brevity of these summer courses, it is essential that students come prepared to engage in learning the very first day. To facilitate this, each course has 'Pre-Class' work to complete. This generally includes reading and often requires a written essay to be submitted before or on the first day of class.
