This 2011 Regent College Pastor's Conference presents the liberating understanding of leadership as participation in the life of the missional triune God, living out our union with Christ and his work in the world. While challenging the pastor to live contemplatively towards God and in participation with his life and love, this understanding also invites the pastor into community with other leaders, and the body of Christ of which he or she is a part. The presenters call us to consider what it means to live in union with Christ and his ministry; to think carefully about the character formation and communal orientation of the pastor; to probe the function of apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic leadership in and beyond the church; and finally, by way of illustration, to empower leadership of the arts in and beyond the church.
