Chapter 3 of John Roberto’s Faith Formation 2020 outlines six key leadership competencies that church leaders need : 1.) Becoming an adaptive leader 2.) Becoming an innovative leader 3.) Becoming a “Blue Ocean leader 4.) Becoming a Change Leader 5.) Becoming a Culturally Intelligent Leader 6.) Becoming a Curator of Content. Though these competencies are taken from different leadership theories, they have one thing in common – transformation. These kinds of leadership techniques help church leaders transform their church into one that has faith formation programming integrated into the fabric of the congregation’s life. Though it may be relatively easy to see this faith formation vision, it is much more difficult making it happen.
What are some of your best leadership techniques for helping bring about change in your local congregation?
