Research Seminar
Principles of Leadership in the New Testament

Rev Dr Paul Beasley-Murray

The context in which we apply New Testament principles of Christian leadership is very different from that of the early church. Paul Beasley-Murray was a local church pastor for over 34 years, and upon retirement, authored a four-volume definitive guide to ministry entitled Living Out the Call (Feed-a-Read 2015; revised in 2016). 

He notes: “Although I believe that without leadership there is no hope for the church, I am conscious that in some church circles there is a good deal of suspicion about leadership. The values of secular leadership are very different from the values of church leadership, and sometimes there has been unhelpful confusion. Of course, there is more to ministry than leadership – but without leadership there is no effective ministry”.

About Laidlaw’s Research Seminars

As a part of Laidlaw’s commitment to relevant, gospel-centred, innovative research, the School of Theology faculty gather on the second Wednesday of each month for a research seminar. The seminars are built around a simple format – one academic presentation followed by critical interaction. The seminar is videoconferenced across Laidlaw’s three campuses. Anyone is welcome to join us – this could include postgrad students, researchers from other institutions, or any others looking to hear and interact with cutting edge theological and biblical research.  

If you are unable to come to a Laidlaw campus and would like to join in from your device (anywhere, any place), please email Kerry Gordon E. [email protected]
