Hospitality in Missional Leadership

Starting date

Hospitality is at the heart of missional leadership. It starts as we ourselves become the guest: a guest in this world, and a guest in God’s world. As a guest we learn how to be an open-hearted host.

In this course you will learn to compare and integrate your understanding and experience of hospitality with a deeper exploration of the biblical perspectives on hospitality. You will use these insights to develop your own practices of hospitality and missional leadership.

“Leadership is the activity that leads others deeper into being fully human: that enables them to accept and take responsibility for the life they have received as a unique person within created humanity.”
