VOLUME 38: Leadership in Ministry- 2018
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?
