How do I demonstrate Competency 2? “Identify the ‘core habits of the heart’ that ministers of the gospel and spiritual leaders must maintain in order to visibly progress in the Scriptures in a sound manner, and identify the general development phases characteristic of most leaders, sketching a lifelong strategy for growth and development.”
- You may use any evidence you have to demonstrate this or any competency.
- Students normally use material generated by the discussions and projects of Unit 3 in order to address this competency. This competency also has two parts. To address the first part, students often draw on Unit 3, Issue 2, Project 1. This project asks that you identify key habits that are necessary to “discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness”. Originally part of Paul’s instruction to Timothy, this phrase relates to leaders carrying out their responsibilities and fulfilling their ministries. For the second portion of the competency, students usually expand upon Unit 3, Issue 3, Project 1. It is important to note that the projects asks you chart out your own timeline. This alone will not address the competency. You will also need to take a step back and reflect on the developmental stages that are true of leaders generally. Robert Clinton’s articles are very helpful here. Then, having done this, think about the developmental strategies that need to be employed at each stage.
