Abstract: 

It is likely that the need for a full- time leadership in the churches will continue--and that implies professional leadership. Carroll reviews the argument for the professional model--how it does and does not fit the church--and concludes that there are various ways in which the model needs to be reinterpreted, particularly in the present pluralistic context.
