Introduction

Politics determines the direction of a nation’s economic prosperity and social stability. In any democratic environment, apart from registered political parties, individuals and pressure groups are constantly engaged in political activities for different reasons. The engagement of these people is what helps to shape the political culture of that society. 

One set of people that seem to be lackadaisical about political participation is the Christians. The reason is that many sincere Christian people do not know to what extent politics affects their life. Many believe politics is dirty; therefore, it is not for decent people. Many Christians actually believe it is not possible for one to be a ‘true Christian’ and be a decent politician.

These are strong perceptions that have deterred ordinary, but capable Christian people from coming forward to participate in the political processes including contesting for political positions.

Political leadership requires a great deal of artistry. Given the complexity of society in the 21st century, Christians aspiring for political leadership at any level must understand these complexities and how master how to drive society towards sustainable development and stability. Emerging political leaders must understand the unfolding trends as well as be equipped with requisite political skills to navigate the contours of public leadership in a diverse world.

Description

Kingdom Politics & Governance (KPG) is an Executive Programme designed to raise high quality political leaders from among the cream of Christian faithful. The programme is designed to broaden the visionary capacity of potential Christian Politicians to take public politics as a long-term engagement, and to prepare them for in-depth public leadership roles.

The Programme has a balanced mix of theoretical interrogations and pragmatic focus on practical leadership challenges, drawing from Scriptural foundations as well as from past and contemporary global leadership examples. Participants will learn to build personal leadership competencies, understand how to manage diversity, and deal with the grey dimensions of political leadership.

Cooperative Learning Philosophy

The course will be highly interactive and would utilize established functionally effective adult learning (Andragogy) methods to deliver the curriculum. The course is learner-focused; therefore, participants will be the key resource persons as they bring their own perspectives, experiences and knowledge into the training. Learning in teams or groups will serve the learning and programme objectives.

Learning teams discuss, prepare, or complete assignments and share learning resources. This facilitates responsibility for independent learning, and enhances interdependent sharing and quick dissemination of information through small group/team exchanges.

The demonstration of skills and mastery of knowledge in this Course will be assessed according to established criteria.

Assessment Criteria

A variety of techniques will be used to assess knowledge and skills acquired by the participants during the course.
