This is a good paper. I'm consistently thinking through the leadership side of things, and particularly the thought from Bolgers/Gibbs that an emerging church needs to have an everyone is a leader approach.

I don't really buy this. Dan Kimball and Mark Driscoll seem to be two prominent emerging dudes that seem to fairly clearly be leaders with leadership teams--and Driscoll is far from egalitarian.


John - thanks for the complement. My own feeling on the leadership thing is that the issue is not egalitarian versus authoritarian but is to do with how power is both understood and used.
