Abstract
The Shifting a Small Rural Congregation's Understanding of Church Leadership project used the methodology of qualitative research through questionnaires designed to measure the leader's awareness of the qualities and characteristics of a leader. Most congregational leaders would come to an agreement that developing new leaders is a critical responsibility of the local church, yet some United Methodist Churches actually do not have an intentional process where leaders are being developed. The Day-Long Lay Leadership Retreat was expected to train the United Methodist Church Book of Discipline mandated Administrative Committees. This Retreat focused on the leader's job descriptions and responsibility to be trained, to train and entrust others with Christian service.
