Effective leadership during a church’s unexpected situational crises can make the difference as to whether things get better or worse. This course provides best-practices guidance for leading during, after, and even before crisis strikes. Putting Christ and mission at the center of the conversation, Hunt examines what happens when crisis strikes and how congregational leaders can prepare for future crises, navigate through current ones, and transform crises into opportunities for congregational learning and development.
