Seminary as servant : essays on trusteeship by Robert K Greenleaf( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 1988 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The leadership role of trustees of seminaries, the seminary as an institution, and the mission of a seminary are considered in two essays. It is suggested that seminaries have the potential to hold the prime position of supporting the churches as they foster religious concern and work to strengthen the moral basis of society. Trustees have the opportunity by questioning and persuasive leadership to encourage the seminary to: (1) evolve an adequate theology of institutions; (2) define in contemporary terms whom and what purpose the seminary can best serve; (3) determine the best curriculum and method to serve the people and purpose; (4) give effective support to churches in the full scope of their mission; and (5) become significant sources of prophetic vision. It is suggested that if a better society is to be built, the best way is to raise the performance as servant of as many institutions as possible by voluntary regenerative actions initiated within them by committed individuals (servants). Questions that should be considered in determining the seminary's mission include: whether the seminary views itself as a model for other institutions; whether critical thought is a high priority in the seminary; whether the image created by the mission statement suggests a strong contemporary institution; whether the seminary attracts students who have the potential to become influential church leaders and whether it attracts capable faculty; whether the seminary experience develops spirit; and whether the mission has power.

The servant as religious leader by Robert K Greenleaf( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1996 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of increasing the number of religious leaders and the roles of the seminary and church are considered. Religious leadership is needed to respond to widespread alienation in all sectors of society as well as to many institutions' inability or unwillingness to serve society. The leader needs three intellectual abilities: a sense for the unknowable, readiness for the unexpected, and foresight. It is claimed that seminaries are not supplying the ideas, the means of expression, or the leadership to increase the number of religious leaders, probably because they do not have among their trustees, faculty, or administrators enough people who think in terms of how things get done in complex institutional arrangements. The primary mission of the seminary should be leading and supporting churches as influential institutions. Whereas seminaries now primarily have an academic rather than formative role, the formation of religious leaders should be the main goal. The seminary faculty need to develop and articulate a contemporary theology of what makes religious leaders and the institutions they serve strong, and churches need to nurture the growth of strong, caring, and serving persons.

Servant, retrospect & prospect by Robert K Greenleaf( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perspectives concerning the need for a more caring, serving society and for raising the serving capacity of institutions in society are considered. It is suggested that in the university there should be a more determined effort to develop the servant leadership potential that exists among students. Although students with athletic potential find elaborate coaching resources available, nothing explicit is done in the crucial undergraduate years to develop leadership potential. This situation might be addressed by the rare professor who independently takes an interest in this aspect of student growth. Additionally, a college president could personally offer to lead a noncredit seminar for elected student leaders. The agenda of the seminar might be discussions with invited resource people and sharing between the president and the student leaders on matters of mutual concern in their current leadership roles. Young people can be helped to accept the world and to believe that they can learn to live productively in it as it is, to make a small part of the world a little better. The potential role of seminaries and foundations in encouraging servant leaders and bringing together communities of seekers is noted. Important to receiving, communicating, and responding to liberating visions are immersion in the experiences the world offers, acceptance of people involved in these experiences and learning what motivates them, and being open to receive and act upon what inspiration offers.
