Who Am I to Go to Pharaoh? Biblical Insights on Faithful Leadership

The Rev. Dr. Robert Robinson, LTSP Anna Burkhalter Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew

Five consecutive Saturdays, Oct. 5 to Nov. 2, live on the LTSP campus from 10 am to noon
and flexible* online - the choice is yours!

Are you called as a leader? Are you a lay person who volunteers in a congregation or other environments where strong leadership is needed? LTSP is offering a Biblically based, not for credit course developed to equip and empower lay leaders. Grow your laity leadership skills - attend Who Am I to Go to Pharaoh? Biblical Insights on Faithful Leadership this fall on campus or online. The course is being taught by the Rev. Dr. Robert B. Robinson, Anna Burkhalter Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at LTSP, and you can join in one of two ways:

  • Live on the LTSP Campus over five consecutive Saturdays, October 5 to November 2, 2013, from 10 a.m. to noon. Join Dr. Robinson live in the classroom to learn and share with class colleagues.
  • Online for five weeks beginning October 7. View course videos, participate in discussions forums with class colleagues, and other activities.
  • *Flexible means you can attend in whatever way works best for you. You can choose each week - in the classroom, online, a combination of both - for a single registration!

“Although the Bible is by no means a how-to manual for effective leadership, it does recount the stories of remarkable figures such as Moses, Joshua, Deborah, Ruth and Naomi, David, Solomon and Paul, who were called to provide leadership for Israel and the early Christian church,” Robinson notes. “At the core of their leadership was their faith in God and their resolution to lead people in ways in ways that were faithful to God's will and desire. Participants in this series will study the biblical texts recounting the lives of these leaders, drawing inspiration from their examples and insights from the courses of actions they charted for their people.”

 At the end of the successfully completed series, each participant will receive a certificate of completion or one CEU if requested.

Videos will also be available separately for congregations that wish to use them for their own study programs.

The cost for the course is $200 for individuals enrolling for flexible classroom or online study - a single registration covers both. The cost for congregational groups of two or more will be $250 per group.
