Variations in How Pastors Practice Leadership

Some 30 percent of female clergy see themselves as agents of empowerment whose role is to encourage their lay leaders to make and implement decisions for the church. Only 8 percent of men hold the same view. However, in small congregations (those with fewer than 100 members) male clergy are also likely to leave decision making in the hands of the laity. Overall, 72 percent of all clergy, and the vast majority of male clergy, say that while they do try to inspire laity to make decisions and take action, they act unilaterally when necessary.  Read more findings from the 2001 National Survey of Clergy, which includes personal or group reflection questions at: http://pulpitandpew.org/how-do-pastors-practice-leadership
