Models Of Leadership And Organisation In Anglican Churches In Rural Australia
Models of Leadership and Organisation in Anglican Churches in Rural Australia, by Philip Hughes and Audra Kunciunas.
This research paper focusses on some quite different models operating in various dioceses, including:
- Ecumenical cooperation
- Enabler supported ministry
- Full-time stipended priest or minister
- Large area team ministry operating over multiple parishes
- Ministry leadership team.
Five case-studies seek to capture the stories of individual churches and examine at depth the factors operating in each situation. At the heart of the study is the question: what are the preferred options in rural situations where the resources are few and the numbers of people small?
