Working Document

How does your congregation understand church leadership? What are the shared understandings about how to work with the various levels of leadership? What are theological and ethical understandings of how to call leaders? How can leaders faithfully lead?

Building upon the work A Mennonite Polity for Ministerial Leadership (1996), this resource frames the task of leadership through a missional lens in order to more fully become the church God is calling us to be. It reflects biblical roots and Anabaptist theology through contemporary expressions of best practices and shared understandings of church leadership. This is an effective tool for leadership training or church-wide discussion.
