LM1 Church Leadership & Management PDF Version

Leadership & Management Course PDF VERSION

The services we hold in our Churches and online are often the first introduction many people have to the religion of Spiritualism. It is therefore of the utmost importance that churches have good leadership and management. In this course any reference to church will include all SNU Affiliated Bodies such as Pioneer Centres and Kindred Bodies. This course is designed to help those who are involved in the running of churches to understand their role and responsibilities. Good leadership and management creates and builds a successful church. 

If you have already completed the Teachings and Practice of Spiritualism course (TPS1) or Spiritualist Healing course (SH1) you are exempted from sections one and two test papers in this course, however, you should read them as they are referenced in the practical training for CAS. You should advise your tutor of this and if you are on the Church Accreditation Scheme (CAS) enter the marks which you received for each section into your logbook.
