Liderazgo en Conjunto: A Leadership Development Model for the Twenty-First Century

Altagracia PĂ©rez-Bullard

The leadership challenges of Latinx Episcopal congregations echo broadly in US churches and institutions of all types, as they seek to adjust and respond to rapid change. Leadership and organizational theories from the public sector have been adapted and applied to congregational settings. This study identifies elements of these theories in play among Latinx priests ministering in the Episcopal Diocese of New York as they address leadership issues in congregations challenged by organizational change and transitioning neighborhoods. Their strategies emerge from a Latinx cultural paramountcy on community and justice values, described here as liderazgo en conjunto, and are a model for adaptable leadership that is responsive to the gospel mandate to work for justice.
