Are you finding it hard to develop new leaders for the congregations, ministries, and organizations you serve? If you're someone who thinks that leaders can be formed through training courses, you're in for a surprise!
Listen to the voices of a selected group of Latin American leaders and share how they emerged and grew. Learn from their stories.
Living in Latin America as a foreigner means you have experienced awkward moments and bewildering misunderstandings. All leaders are influenced by their culture. Informed by personal experience and doctoral research, Anderson shares stories of Latin American Christian leaders who identify the cultural values that shaped them and teach them when to yield to cultural values and when to take corrective actions. Your understanding of leadership and your cross-cultural awareness and appreciation will expand together.
Anderson suggests four specific ways you can co-participate with God to help leaders emerge and grow:
• Accompany them
• Open up spaces for them to serve
• Create developmental experiences
• Promote self-leadership from the start of their journey
Personal and team reflection exercises will guide you on your leadership journey and help you to make concrete action plans.
