Course Description: All churches and non-profit organizations operate from a bricks and mortar location. Regardless of the size, location and square footage, the property is an essential part of the equation for the delivery of the services of that endeavor. Churches and non-profits alike will invest funds in the acquisition and maintenance of their property, and astute management of the property is essential for good stewardship of the limited funds available. In this course, the student will examine the ‘tangibles’ of ministry. This practicum will assist the student in developing stewardship of ministry facilities and an awareness of safety issues, overall presentation and utilization of the property.
A reader of various materials and resources compiled by IBOLT is required for this course.
