Item Description...
This book is intended as a resource and training tool for multicultural ministry practitioners and other professional Christians working in an urban ministry context. Along with the growing interest in the intentional development of multicultural congregations there is also a significant lack of practical resources to support such ministry. Dan Sheffield brings a missiologist's perspective to this discussion that has been shaped by experience in North America's multi-ethnic reality, by church planting experience in urban South Africa and by ongoing work with pastors in multi-ethnic megacities as diverse as Manila, Mumbai, and Budapest. The Multicultural Leader specifically deals with the role of congregational leadership in embedding the multicultural vision as a way of "seeing." The author draws from social theory, biblical studies, theological reflection, leadership studies, social research and intercultural communication skills to develop a profile of leaders necessary to initiate and sustain the multicultural congregation. The author's conclusion is that leaders in multi-ethnic congregations must move through a personal development process from ethnocentrism to ethno-relativism in order to truly serve as enablers of multicultural congregations. Dan Sheffield is Director of Global and Intercultural Ministries for the Free Methodist Church in Canada. He has served as a church-planting pastor in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and adjunct lecturer at the Evangelical Seminary of Southern Africa, where he taught spiritual formation and conflict resolution to a multi-ethnic student body.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Pound for Pound  Feb 10, 2005
"Pound for Pound" is an expression that is used in the world of boxing to describe a fighter who dominates his weight class more than any other fighter in the other weight classes. Middleweight Roy Jones Jr. held that distinction for a number of years defeating fighters in heavier weight classes.
"Pound for Pound" ... "The Multicultural Leader" is the real deal and contender for the church book read of 2005. Why? Well because it's the only book I know of that integrates the multicultural biblical DNA of the church with modern leadership principles. This little heretical book challenges the underlying idiosyncratic worldview of the modern homogeneous "church growth" movement.
"The Multicultural Leader" is divided into three sections:
Section (A) "Social Theory in the Light of Christian Ethics" develops a sound basis for the multicultural heterogeneous and incarnational body of believers as the true character of the church.
Section (B) "Leadership Factors and Capacities Required" succinctly portrays the leader as Envisioning, Embedding, Embodying, Embracing, Enabling and Empowering.
Among many other things, the leader must help the congregation suspend current cultural expectations to become more and more comfortable living with cultural vertigo.
Section (C) "The Processes of Transformational Development" describes six stages of church transformation beginning with the exclusive homogeneous formation toward the transformed inclusive body of Christ. The integrated matrix of leadership transformation and church models is a lucid tool for helping congregations figure out where they are and where they must go next.
Well researched, biblical and highly relevant for the fragmented church today, this one should be on every church leader's reading list and on the reading list of every seminary - church leadership course. Don't have time to read all those books on church growth and church leadership? "The Multicultural Leader" purposes to transform your thinking, leadership and hopefully your church ... until Jesus comes.
"Pound for pound" the best and most helpful read in 2005 in any class ... church apologetics, church growth, mission, church leadership.
Rob, P.Eng. M.Div.
