Mastering Change in Ministry

This unit acknowledges life is lived in times of change, and ministries are performed as agents of change for the sake of the gospel. It seeks to provide an understanding of the dynamics of change in history, in institutions, and in private lives. This sees change positively, and as a tool for Christian ministry. It examines the metaphors and morphologies of change, examines case studies from the biblical texts, considers the ‘clock builders’ versus ‘time tellers’ paradigm, and investigates the spiritual and emotional issues. It offers practical help in mastering change at an organisational level and designing and implementing organisational change.
