Please note: This is an only title. The worldwide church is more interconnected than ever before, with missionaries going from everywhere to everywhere. Africans work with Australians in India. Koreans plant churches in London and Los Angeles. But globalization also creates challenges for crosscultural tension and misunderstandings, as different cultures have conflicting assumptions about leadership values and styles. Missiologist James E. Plueddemann presents a roadmap for crosscultural leadership development in the global church. With keen understanding of current research on cultural dynamics, he integrates theology with leadership theory to apply biblical insights to practical issues in world mission. Savvy discernment of diverse cultural underpinnings allows multicultural teams to work together with mutual respect for more effective ministry. The author shows how leaders can grow from an individualistic egocentric practice of leadership to a more global-centric approach. The future of the global church depends on effective multicultural leadership. God has called people from various contexts to minister and lead in every land for the sake of the gospel. Whether you are teaching English in China, directing information technology in Africa or pastoring a multiethnic church in North America, discover how you can better work and lead across cultures. About the Author James E. Plueddemann (Ph.D., Michigan State) is Professor of Missions and Chair, Department of Missions and Evangelism at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author of God's Heart for the World: Missionary Themes from Genesis to Revelation, James: Growing in Maturity, Spiritual Hunger: Filling Your Deepest Longings, and Meekness: Claiming Your Inheritance (all with Carol Plueddemann).
