Team-Based Communication - Module Four: Team Culture, Leadership, and Consensus ( CMC 514 )

This module considers how our organization or movement’s culture shapes us and how we shape it, the influence of context on what healthy leadership communication looks like, and the pursuit of consensus in decision-making. This module considers how our diversity reflects the image of God, and what that means in team leadership and communication across differences of race, generation, language, culture, religion, and gender. How do we adequately and biblically address the inextricable relationship between issues of communication and the temptations of money, sex, and power?

Team-Based Communication - Module One: The Trinity, Community, and Communication ( CMC 511 )

This first module of the Master of Arts in Team-Based Communication focuses on a biblical perspective of communication, laying a foundation for modules 2-4. We will examine our understanding of communication, applied to team life in global missions. This module unpacks the communication DNA implicit in our values and rooted in the nature of Who God Is, relates that to the academic study of communication, and considers its application to our roles and tasks as communicators. In this introductory 16-week module we address five threads of learning. First of all, we consider God as Communicator, and what we can learn about communication from God as seen in the Trinity, the Incarnation, and Pentecost. Secondly, we consider the movement we are part of, and what our founding documents tell us about communication. Thirdly, we consider the academic field of communication in teams and in non-profit organizations. Fourthly, we reflect on our own communication experiences in light of the above perspectives. Finally, this module introduces the skills necessary to do the academic work of a graduate degree.

Team-Based Communication - Module Three: Intercultural Communication ( CMC 513 )

This module considers intercultural dynamics of unity in diversity in a global movement. How do we better address issues of teamwork, decision-making, and community life, in a multicultural team or ministry environment? This module also moves the participants forward in their empirical research strategy toward the thesis or capstone.

Team-Based Communication - Module Two: Technology in Community and Mission ( CMC 512 )

This module explores implications of technological development on team-based communication, specifically for us as a global missions movement committed to engaging the emerging generation. Where are current trends taking us? What posture is most appropriate in the face of these trends? Is technological advance better understood to be an ally or a threat? What strategic changes are we advised to make? This module also considers empirical communication research, addressing both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, and aims to get the candidates started on designing their empirical research strategy toward the thesis or capstone.
