"If the church is to regain lost ground it must find new ways to identify leaders and develop ministry forms that are reproducible and can morph in response to the cultural mosaic. A truly missional church requires a team building philosophy of leadership in order to bring together the range of insights, skills and experiences that are needed to translate vision into reality. Churches must be sufficiently flexible and spontaneous to respond in a timely manner to the needs, challenges and opportunities of postmodernity.
The church needs to be led by those who can live with untidiness but can see organizational patters in the midst of the apparent chaos. Leaders need to be familiar with the recurring and widespread themes in our culture, and connected with the wider conversation taking place in cyberspace."
