Learners will craft a “Leadership Developmental Timeline” (making use of Clinton materials and supplemental resources supplied, e.g., Values Clarification Worksheet, Module One). It is suggested that learners begin the process on a worksheet, white board or mind-mapping blank page. This is a process of reflection, examination, retreat and reporting. Nurture an atmosphere of prayerful self-acceptance and discernment as you work (Psalm 90:12-14, Romans 12:3). Assignment Outline:
Introduction. Using the Congruence Model, explain what the purpose and direction of the reflection project. (1-3 paragraphs)
Brief Narrative Overview. Using the 5-6 phases of the Timeline Model that offers an overview of major phases in your unique timeline (Example: Show specific events plotted). Demonstrate familiarity with Clinton’s emergence concepts including: process items, response patterns, process items, time‐line definitions, destiny processing. (1-2 pages)
My Congruence Model. Using the four dimensions of congruence as sub-headings, listing 5-7 process items (shaping activities) which inform your Priorities, Postures, Practices and Projects. Demonstrate familiarity with each Clinton Article: “Perspectives on Your Unique Timeline,” Ministry Flows from Being,” “Social Base Processing” and “Dynamic Ministry Philosophy.” Note: As no human has complete congruence, discuss the gaps in your own congruence, and how you compensate for this unfulfilled aspect of your life.
My Ministry Philosophy. Insights gleaned from Clinton’s “Dynamic Ministry Philosophy,” state 5-7 principles which you affirm to be resolved matters of identity, theory, theology and style as it pertains to making your major life contributions in ministry. This is the “How to Do It Right!” section of your paper – this represents ingredients in your personal theory of transformation, for self, team, systems and organizational strategies.
Conclusion ~ Make “Your Ethical Declaration” of how you plan to live, especially in light of the “Substance and Shadows” dilemmas that are sure to come, sure to test, sure to improve each of us.
