Lambert, Trent, "Eight Key Principles to Transform Church Culture to Retain Ministry Leaders" (2013). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 761.
In today's culture, there is an ever-growing population of unchurched and dechurched within our local communities, not to mention dysfunctional leaders within the Church. This project attempts to create a healthy quality of life for ministry leaders that transcends into relevant evangelism and empowering discipleship. Based on scripture, segments of church history leadership styles, surveys of current ministry leaders, various books/articles, and personal perspectives this paper will delineate lessons to be learned and principles that are effective in the remodeling process. The principles within this project will show how church culture can transition from an antiquated paradigm of ministry to that of empowered leadership that produces cultural relevance and relational discipleship.
