The church as we know it is calibrated for a world that no longer exists. It needs to recalibrate in order to address the questions that animate today’s congregants. Leading congregational researcher Scott Cormode explores the role of Christian practices in recalibrating the church for the twenty-first century, offering church leaders innovative ways to express the never-changing gospel to their ever-changing congregations.

This faculty chair was established by the family of the late Hugh De Pree, an accomplished leader and brother of longtime Fuller board member Max De Pree, in order to further develop leadership training programs within the School of Theology and the De Pree Leadership Center. Cormode brought significant leadership and teaching experience to this position, as an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA) who served for the previous decade as George Butler Associate Professor of Church Administration and Finance at Claremont School of Theology. Cormode also served at Claremont as associate dean for institutional research, chair of the Curriculum Committee, chair of the Accreditation Team, and principal writer of the Long Range Planning Committee. Functioning as a leader of leaders, Cormode founded in 1998 the Academy of Religious Leadership, an organization for professors who teach leadership in seminaries, and created the Journal of Religious Leadership, for which he also acts as editor, in 2001. His articles on leadership, organization, and technology have appeared as well in Christian Century, Theological Education, and Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion. His most recent book, Making Spiritual Sense: Theological Interpretation as Christian Leadership, was published by Abingdon Press in November 2006. He has served as convener for numerous leadership conferences, presented dozens of papers, chaired various boards, and led training events. He maintains a series of case studies and other resources on www.christianleaders.org, a website for developing Christian leaders. and The use of
