Evaluating the Effectiveness of Leader Life (SDI) Training as a Tool to Develop Christian Leaders in the Metropolitan District and the Christian and Missionary Alliance
by Bortner, Douglas S., D.Min., Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary, 2018, 152; 10822822
Abstract (Summary)

The author presents the problem of a lack of emotional and spiritual well-being in pastors and Christian leaders who minister in the Metropolitan District and The Christian and Missionary Alliance. In this study, he evaluated the intervention: Leader Life (SDI) Training, first recruiting 100 participants who completed the training, then using the Leader Life Evaluation Survey to measure whether Leader Life increased the self-understanding, strengthened the soul identity, and improved the relational management of participants. He interviewed nine participants and searched for indicators of emotional and spiritual development. The author discovered Leader Life (SDI) Training is an effective tool to develop Christian leaders, and offered ministry recommendations.
