The Practical Applications of Lay Leadership with an Online Theology Degree

Chances are you’ve been inspired by a respected leader in your church or community. We all know the traits of a great leader: vision, honesty, empathy, communication, etc., but there’s more to it.

At Gonzaga, the online Masters in Theology and Leadership program is two-fold, engaging students in the Christian theological tradition while empowering them to become leaders in their own communities by earning an online theology degree.

Being a successful leader isn’t easy. While your intentions might be good, your actions can have far-reaching social, economic, and environmental impacts on your community. The path to becoming a better leader starts with education, enough practice to gain experience, and trust in God.

The online theology degree program collaborates with Gonzaga’s M.A. in Organizational Leadership, which teaches you the intricacies of leadership theory and examines leadership in the context of other cultures and value systems. These are the skills that form leaders in the corporate, government, non-profit and community sectors.

This unique educational experience is ideal for students already in a ministry or mission-oriented position, but anyone who is interested in this type of vocation is welcome to join. By combining theological education with leadership formation, students can take on leadership positions in health care, primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, charitable organizations, and advocacy groups.

Whether you want to work in the field or with your congregation, Gonzaga’s Master of Arts in Theology and Leadership opens your mind and heart, allowing you to be an empathetic leader who can effectively share the message of God’s love with your community. Explore the possibilities of lay leadership your way at Gonzaga with an online Master’s in Theology and Leadership.
