Ministry and Personnel: What Type of Leadership Does the Church Need?

Vision of BC Conference Executive

The church longs for leadership that passionately proclaims the gospel and so we seek:

  • leadership that it is rooted in the biblical narrative;
  • leadership that is being transformed / converted by the good news;
  • leadership that is in service to Jesus Christ;
  • leadership that dares to risk speaking the truth in love;
  • leadership whose way of life exhibits congruence (that practices what it preaches);
  • leadership with evident spiritual gifts (teaching / preaching /healing).

This kind of leadership:

  • leads people into life within the biblical story;
  • leads the community in its covenanted relationship with God;
  • leads by building up the community / Body of Christ / church / people of God;
  • leads in ways appropriate to the cultural context.
