Oddly enough in today’s world of Christian academia, there has been a pulling back from clear education concerning ministry ethics; yet as we examine our world, we see situational ethics, political and social correctness, and worldly pressures pressing in― not only on the body of Christ― but especially on Christian leaders.
In recent times, ethical abuse within Christendom has been more the norm than the exception. We need to know what to do when presented with ethical challenges in our leadership positions and more importantly: why. This course explores a number of ethical challenges pastors and ministers will face, and how to respond biblically.
