Considering the recent publicised failings of Church Leadership, this Carey Conversation provides some biblical and theological reflection on the nature of Church and leadership in Aotearoa today. In this conversation, Jonny Weir (Carey’s Director of Ministry Training) interviews Frank Ritchie (Wesleyan Methodist minister and one of the authors of the Arise Church report). In the interview they explore some of the potential problems with models of church and leadership being adopted today. Dr Christa McKirland (Lecturer in systematic theology), Dr Michael Rhodes (Old Testament Lecturer), and Luke Kaa-Morgan (Te Pouarataki mō te hikoi) then join the conversation to provide some biblical and theological reflections on what it means to be the Church and models of leadership that we could aspire to.
