Building Spirit Contemporary Leaders for Life
Where is the tallest building in the world? It’s wherever people decided to build it. Every city has the raw materials necessary, but the building only exists where people purposefully designed and worked toward creating it.
Where are the greatest leaders in the world? Potential is everywhere, but great leaders aren’t built by accident.
Our church has an insatiable need for incredible leaders who have the ability to be effective in navigating their way through a variety of complex and changing situations and being able to get the job done.
We are fully aware that there are many young people in our midst who can be encouraged and groomed to be the leaders of tomorrow. We have thought ahead to where our church needs to go, what our church needs to do to get there and we are determined to build the necessary skills into our potential leaders to make it happen.
The Critical Need for Leaders
We are living in times of rapid change. Technology has transformed our lives and has been instrumental in turning our world into a global village. As a result of the increasing complexity of our world and our ever- expanding church growth, strong leadership is needed to guide people through the rapid maze of change that they are facing and that our church is facing.
Students need to learn leadership skills. Large and small companies and organizations now identify team leadership skills as the number one quality that they look for in the university and college graduates that they hire. However, research has shown that you cannot address the leadership challenges of today’s complex world by reading and discussion alone--you have to experience them. Unfortunately, in most universities and colleges today few students learn the leadership skills that they need to be successful in their future jobs or to serve their churches or communities effectively.
COURSES AND DESCRIPTIONS
MEDIA PRODUCTION I
This course is an introduction to television studio and field production and will familiarize students with the technical and aesthetic concepts and competencies involved in producing successful studio and field production. Students will develop their skills through a series of in-class exercises, studio and field projects, and through hands on training with our world class Springs Church media department. Students will have the opportunity to be exposed to and work in a wide range of media ministry opportunities available here at Springs Church.
These courses will assist in training and equipping our students to walk in and share the abundant life God has provided for us as well as to reach out and minister to a lost and hurting world. Our Bible School- ISOM is designed to equip ordinary Christians to do extraordinary things. It is for those who desire to have lives that are more fruitful, effective and victorious for Christ. The effectiveness of ISOM is based in its breadth of great teachers. The material was never designed as a collection of theory & theology; rather it aims at capturing the life-messages of respected believers from many different streams of Christianity. By learning from people with diverse annointings and backgrounds, the training is balanced and life changing. Students will be taking the first three semesters of the ISOM program and the cost is included in their Springs College tuition fees.

LEADERSHIP AND PERSONAL MANAGEMENT
This course introduces students to the personal management challenges and competencies that are critical for effective leadership. Students learn how the personal development of life skills such as integrity, positive attitudes and behaviours, critical thinking, communication, managing information, problem solving, self-discipline, goal setting, time management, stress management, etc. relate to their ability to be an effective leader. This course focuses on facilitating the students’ awareness and understanding of their own abilities and provides the students with ample opportunity for growth through self-reflection, personal exploration, discussion and application.
LEADERSHIP AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT
This course is focused on the dynamics of project leadership from the individual, team, and organizational perspective. Students will learn the roles that leadership, assessment and evaluation play in developing world-class project teams.
This course explores the “human side” and “the process side” of leadership and project management and there are two main objectives for this course:
The first objective in this course is to introduce students to the skills, qualities and attributes needed to successfully follow and lead others in a project management environment. A significant emphasis is placed upon interpersonal competencies and skills required for leading and motivating groups/teams.
The second objective in this course is for students to focus on the key fundamental project management areas with emphasis on organizing, planning and scheduling work and provides the information needed to organize and structure the work on a project. As students progress through college, church and into the workforce, these skills will prove to be extremely beneficial to their development and growth.
APPLIED LEADERSHIP AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT
This course is a hands-on project-based companion course to the Leadership and Project Management course. Since the most effective leadership programs occur in everyday settings where training and getting things done happen at the same time, this course will provide students frequent opportunities to practice the leadership skills they are learning in the Leadership and Project Management course and apply them in real-life situations. Students will plan, organize and execute ministry events and projects. As student leaders become more skilled and confident, they can take increasing responsibility both for planning and managing their activities and for training less experienced students in leadership skills.
