Perspectives from Parish Leaders: U.S. Parish Life and Ministry (2012)
The challenge facing ministry formators today, in forming the character of the pastoral leader for leadership in the 21st century is indeed, daunting. The good news is that it can be done in ways that are totally unexpected and yet attainable within the current structures. The characteristics will serve pastoral leaders whatever the socio-economic setting, demographics, or geography. These findings are the result of extensive research being conducted by six national organizations representing lay and ordained leadership, using a variety of formal and informal research methodologies. A growing and credible body of information is now available to those who are preparing tomorrow’s leaders.
