Sharing Leadership | A United Church of Christ Way of Being in Community (Drummond)
See below for our UCC Polity Bundle discount!
In a world that celebrates individual charisma and personal platform, how can the United Church of Christ’s ethos of shared leadership provide a countercultural message?
The UCC's structure and well-being depend upon shared leadership:
- between pastors and congregations,
- between churches and Associations/Conferences,
- between believers with diverse life experiences,
- across regions with varied histories.
That quality of collaboration is often understated – in contrast to the United Church of Christ’s more public pronouncements – yet the ethos of shared leadership may be one of the UCC’s greatest gifts to a secular world that is increasingly narrated by division and platform.
Praise for Sharing Leadership
