|dc.description.abstract||Leadership plays a vital role in the development and
success of any church organization. Many authors write
about the importance of spiritual leadership on the
progress of the organization. Since quality leadership is
inevitable in the success of the organization, it implies
that developing leaders toward spiritual leadership is
imperative in the growth of the church organization.
The purpose of this study is to develop training
materials focusing on spiritual leadership development.
This can be used in training local church leaders towards
spiritual leadership development.
At the onset of this project, a need assessment survey
was conducted to determine the problems of the local
churches and the possible alternative solution. Survey
results showed that lack of spirituality is the prevalent
problem in the churches. Survey findings also disclosed
that there is a need for training materials and seminar
focusing on spiritual leadership development. Hence,
developing materials for spiritual leadership development
and employing it in training local church leaders are
appropriate solution to the problem.
Before proceeding to the formulation of the training
materials, this study examined the training done by Jesus
to His disciples to determine the concept, foundation,
process, and focus of spiritual leadership development. The
theology of divine revelation through the ministry of Jesus
Christ and of the Holy Spirit together with J. Robert
Clinton’s theory of leadership development and John M.
Fowler’s theory of faith development were also discussed.
The findings on these studies shaped the formulation of the
training materials for spiritual leadership development.
Using the materials developed in this project, a
training seminar was conducted for the local church leaders
of Area 8 of the Central Luzon Conference. The evaluation
of the training seminar and of the materials used was done
by using questionnaires, interviews, and personal
The results of the evaluation showed that the training
materials developed in this study are effective tools in
developing local church leaders towards spiritual
leadership. Some suggestions for better spiritual
leadership seminar are also presented.||en_US
