Church Leadership

The Leadership Program fulfills an important role in the Methodist University curriculum. The Tally Center for Leadership Development was founded in 1995 on the belief that our country urgently needs better leaders in all walks of life. The Center offers an Associate of Arts concentration in Leadership and Management and two interdisciplinary academic minors: One in Leadership Studies and the other in Church Leadership.

Requirements for the Minor in Church Leadership

18 s.h. – LSS 3000, 4600, and 4700 (the internship must be in a church or some other ministry); REL 2010 and 2020, and one elective (either SOC 2530, SWK 3150, 3500, PSY 3300, OCL 3600, 3900, LSS 3250, 3400, 3500, or 3750). With the approval of the program director, appropriate courses may be substituted.
