Leadership Resilience in a...

The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted individuals, families, organizations, and governments around the world, and BGU is no exception. Like many, BGU had to address these challenges in a creative and adaptive way. In fact, in the summer of 2020 BGU offered a course called “Transformational Strategies for the Ice Age.” This course, initially taught by Dr. Bryan McCabe, offered students from around the world the opportunity to think biblically and critically about the changes and decisions in their organizations.

This summer, BGU is excited to offer a modified version of the course, titled “Developing Leadership Resilience in a Pandemic-Laden World.” Although several countries around the world are experiencing relief and recovery, the pandemic-laden world continues to present an opportunity for all of us. As we “look around the corner,” leaders will be responsible for helping their teams and organizations build resilience and adapt to new realities.

In this course, students will develop a Christ-centered biblical foundation for how to lead with resilience and steward the opportunities in front of them. Students will also have the chance to collaborate with leaders from various backgrounds and contexts, while engaging in a cooperative exchange of ideas and experiences. Additionally, students will design an organizational framework for leading with resilience by identifying new opportunities and strategies for moving forward.

The course will be taught by Dr. Jason Davila (D.Ed.Min, Southern Seminary). He is committed to helping pastors and Kingdom leaders find success and joy in life and ministry. Dr. Davila and his family live in Dallas, TX.
