Leaders Are Born, Not Made: Wrong!

Abstract: 
The Calling Congregations Initiative, a new strategy of the Fund for Theological Education, attempts to help congregations see that it is part of their calling to raise up a new generation of leaders by seeding the idea of ministry in those showing promise for future church leadership. The program’s director, Stephen Lewis, discusses with John Mulder the characteristics of pastors and congregations that nurture well future church leaders as well as the “Cultures of Call” grants from that Fund for Theological Education that seek to encourage such congregations.
