As the US becomes more diverse, cross-cultural ministry is increasingly important for nearly all pastors and church leaders. Of particular concern is the issue of leadership--a difficult task made even more challenging in multicultural settings. Sherwood Lingenfelter helps the reader understand his or her own leadership culture (and its blind spots), examine it critically in light of Scripture, and become an effective learner of other cultural perspectives on leadership. He also confronts the issues of power inherent in any leadership situation. Lingenfelter carefully defines cross-cultural leadership and unpacks that definition throughout the book, with an emphasis on building communities of vision, trust, and empowerment through leadership based on biblical principles. In the end, he argues that leaders must inhabit the gospel story to be effective cross-culturally.
Sherwood G. Lingenfelter (PhD, University of Pittsburgh) is senior professor of anthropology and provost emeritus at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is the author of Transforming Culture, Agents of Transformation, Ministering Cross-Culturally (with Marvin K. Mayers), and Teaching Cross-Culturally (with Judith E. Lingenfelter) as well as several volumes on anthropology.

Sometimes our own cultural bias and sin nature as Christian leaders blinds and prevents us from experiencing biblical community that truly inspires people, builds trust, and empowers leaders. The way forward in kingdom work is through embracing kingdom values.
