What is Christian leadership? Helpful Answers May be Found in New Book, “Leadership-in-Community: The Missiology, Community & Ethics of Missional Leadership.”

CHICAGO, Ill., — Kharis Publishing today announces the release of Leadership in Community: The Missiology, Community & Ethics of Missional Leadership” (ISBN: 978-1637460825) by Lee Carter, an in-depth study for leaders.

Leadership-In-Community is a spiritual formation curriculum designed to provide a theological and practical foundation for Christian leaders committed to the mission of God in a vastly changing world. It engages new or seasoned missional leaders in the foundations of missiology, leadership theory, and leadership practices and tools. The curriculum explores three inter-related themes that build effective missional leadership: the missiology, community, and ethics of missional leadership. These themes are explored through spiritual formation practices based upon Lectio Missio, an expansion of Lectio Divina, including mission-related practices. Using Lectio Missio, small groups of leaders read and study Scripture, pray, dialogue, meditate, journal, and participate in experiential learning. These disciplines of spiritual formation are the basis of missional leadership training and development.

According to Dr. Yancy Smith, author of The Mystery of Anointing and the Senior Director of Translation Services for Bible League International, “This book will help form your heart for long term leadership through the disciplines of lectio missio. Many leadership authors will say that personal growth is key for development as leaders. At the heart of Christian leadership is a necessary process of values clarification. Lee Carter provides a Bible-based curriculum for personal growth to be used by small groups of leaders. If you go through the process outlined in this book, the community God has called you to lead will deeply thank you.”
