What we do: Church management education
Today, many church leaders are tasked with financial and organizational decisions for which they have little to no formal training. What we do at The Global Institute for Church Management (GICM) is help these leaders by sponsoring education in business management skills — helping priests, religious, and lay people become exemplary stewards of the Church’s material goods while giving testimony to the Gospel.
We do this through our flagship Program of Church Management course in Rome as well as through the on-demand webinar series we offer in collaboration with other institutions.
Who is this for?
Church Management education is for anyone who manages ecclesial resources in an economic or administrative capacity. Our programs support priests, religious, and lay people in learning the business skills they need to make their apostolates more effective, more financially sound, and aligned with the highest standards of accountability and transparency.
Building on the Program of Church Management developed by the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, GICM programs equip Church leaders with key management, financial, and organizational skills they need to serve their dioceses and assure the highest standards in managing the Church’s material assets.
