VOLUME 39 - FORMATION, SUPERVISION AND GENDER IDENTITY

We live in an era of rapid social changes.

One of the most significant changes in westernized cultures in the last seven decades

or so has been the shift in how we understand gender and navigate gender issues socially and politically.

The speed of these changes has been revolutionary, a social and intellectual revolution

that is in many ways still unfolding before our eyes.

VOLUME 38: LEADERSHIP IN MINISTRY

In the task of training leaders for professional ministry, is it time we do a critical self-assessment?

Is the way we do supervision, mentoring, and training appropriate to the goal of preparing leaders?

Second, what do we mean by leadership? What are the models of leadership most suited to religious work in the twenty-first century?

A corollary to this latter question might be, Are certain styles of leadership more appropriate

for certain racial or cultural groups or certain kinds of ministry than other leadership styles?

Have we prepared leaders adequately for the particularities and diversity

of the contexts that they will serve in?

Volume 32 Virtues In Formation and Supervision

A virtue is a disposition or character trait that is well enough established in its possessor so that it guides action.

In this sense, a virtue may be both a gift and an achievement.

A virtue is also universal and contextual.

The dispositions may be universal but the cultivation of a virtue is particular.

Volume 31 Formation and Supervision in a Digital Age

The theme "Formation and Supervision in a Digital Age" presents several perspectives exploring the impact of

information technology on living in general and ministry in particular. The digital revolution has created a new culture with

new language and seemingly infinite possibilities. Not only how we supervise will change but the people preparing for

religious leadership will be shaped by the technology itself.

Volume 30 Responsibility and Accountability in Formation and Supervision in Ministry

The theme explores dimensions of responsibility and accountability in formation and supervision

that certainly include but extend beyond a supervisory relationship. Supervision is a relational system that

depends on mutual responsibility, including the capacity to assess the effectiveness of the process.

Anyone engaged in forming or supervising future religious leaders is accountable to a range of

communities and institutions not present in the supervisory relationship.

Volume 29 Forming Religious Leaders In and For a Diverse World

No one questions the importance of addressing the challenge of diversity for both formation and supervision.

Attending to one's social location has become a critical dimension of self-understanding for ministry.

Programs that expose ministry students, pastoral supervisors, and faculty to diverse cultural, ethnic, or religious settings

are standard in virtually every seminary and common fare at professional gatherings.

What must we learn about responding to religious and cultural difference in order to minister authentically in diverse contexts?

Volume 28 Formation and Supervision in the Presence of Fear

The theme for volume 28 is "Formation and Supervision in the Presence of Fear".

We fear forces we can neither control nor comprehend.

For our time, those fears have been magnified and intensified.

Section I focuses on "Living with Fear Without Being Fearful".

Section II focuses on "When Fear Complicates Ministry/Supervision."

We look at ways in which fear enhances or impedes formation and supervision,

depending in part on how it is used.
