|dc.description.abstract||The primary purpose of the study was to explore the
relationship between spiritual participation to
transformational leadership of South Philippine Union '
Conference pastor-leaders. Secondarily, the study was also
aimed at knowing the level of SPUC pastors' spiritual
participation and transformational leadership, and to find
out their needs in spirituality and leadership as basis for
developing a spiritual leadership formation program.
The biblical and theological models along with the
theories in spirituality and transformational leadership
were established to serve as the foundation of the study.
alidation of these models and theories was conducted in
SPUC context with 135 pastors and leaders. Three validated
instruments were used: the Christian Spiritual Participation
Profile of Thayer (2004), the Pastoral Transformational
Leadership Behaviour Instruments for Pastors, Pastoral
Transformational Leadership Behaviour Instrument for Church
officers and the Spiritual Formation Need Assessment Instrument.
The result of the study indicated that although SPUC
pastors are spiritually participating in most spiritual
disciplines in their practice of transformational
leadership, there is a need for them to have intentional and
deep spiritual involvement especially in their practice of
leadership. The data also shows that spiritual participation
influences their transformational leadership.
On the basis of the findings, a Pastoral Spiritual
Leadership Formation Program was designed with components in
group dynamics, spirituality seminars, divine touch sermon,
Bible reading journaling, and administrative spirituality
initiatives. The program is linked to the ministerial
function of SPUC to ensure full support and sustainability.||en_US
