The world is in disarray as it faces a poly-crisis from the pandemic, effects of climate change, the Russia-Ukraine war, and global inflation. The global church needs new leadership models if it is to survive in this present context, and this book offers a leadership model worth pursuing.
Polycentric Mission Leadership is a welcome idea in this multicultural and multidisciplinary context of the global church. This approach to leadership invites people at the periphery to come and participate in decision-making and governance. Voices from majority-world contexts are frequently drowned by the competing voices situated in the center of power. Yet, these voices from the margins are often more sensitive to the realities on the ground. The global church cannot afford to turn deaf ear to those who understand what it means to be a Christian witness beyond the four walls of the church.
