Clergy leadership development exploring factors in the leadership development process of United Methodist clergywomen
Mary B Henley
This project was a collective case study designed to discover factors associated with the leadership development of three effective United Methodist clergywomen. The researcher conducted a biblical review of female prophets from the Bible, in particular, from the Old Testament. Grounded in positive psychology, four developmental areas framed the inquiry into the leadership development process, each representing an area of identity work. A close-ended survey and open-ended interview protocol were used. Five major themes emerged as factors in the leadership development process of these clergywomen: (1) vision; (2) prayer practice; (3) strengths; (4) mentors and (5) intentional community.
