The growing complexity of our living world necessitates the development of managerial skills of people who are specifically engaged in leadership roles in different walks of individuals’ life such as spiritual, pastoral, educational and religious. As the reverend priests, sisters, and lay people share the human and pastoral development mission of the church, it becomes inevitable to inculcate various management abilities in the areas of their pastoral activities.
Historically, Catholic Church had a vital role in the evolution of management theories and principles. Today, however, there is a growing concern about the application of these managerial theories and notions in the field of pastoral ministry. In response, we need better platforms of training and development focusing on the internalization of relevant management theories and its effective way of application.
