Laidlaw Research Seminar
“How does a leader lead under the leadership of the Holy Spirit?”

John Webster suggests “The church is and acts by virtue of the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life.

This being so, how does the Spirit work within leaders in the church to empower and strengthen them in their task, while maintaining the integrity of Christ’s headship. Leaders often shape their congregation’s habitus, so what role does the Spirit play in refining and correcting the leader’s own reflexive behaviour?  This presentation by Kerry Gordon will draw on biblical, theological and historical sources, and will take a brief look at the rich and varied ways in which the Spirit inspires and transforms leaders.
