Formation of new faith communities, and the forces at work in plateaued and declining congregations will be discussed with the opportunity to read and research in depth in a particular area of interest. Students will become familiar with diagnostic and evaluative tools for church health, strategies for rebooting a faltering faith community and modes of pastoral and self care necessary for those charged with the leadership/care of a congregation in the final life stages of its mission.
