Shared Leadership Case Study
As a research associate for the national Clergy into Action Study, I worked with Principal Investigator Dr. David Gortner on website content communicating study findings. Besides contributing to a growing body of research on how newly ordained men and women can effectively make the transition from student to pastor, the Clergy into Action website (http://into-action.net/) was developed to inform the choices made by future church leaders and the organizations that train and educate them.
I wrote this brief case study based on transcripts of extensive interviews with one Clergy into Action Study participant. It explores how a recently ordained priest learned about the benefits of shared leadership through an experience of church conflict.
