The Transformational Leadership of the Apostle Paul: A Contextual and Biblical Leadership for Contemporary Ministry

From: Volume 2, Issue 1: Spring 2005 Pages 48-61


With the proclivity for using business theory to describe ministry leadership in evangelicalism, this paper suggests that we must still look to Scripture for a leader's characteristics. While seemingly anachronistic, Paul's leadership can be described in terms of being transactional-transformational as he served. As such, his relationship with Timothy shows that it is important for a leader to understand the necessity of relating well to Christ, doctrine, and others.
