Abstract (Summary)

Title: Determining the Presence of the German Leadership Principle among Germanic North European Heritage Lead Pastors of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in the Northeast United States

Author: David S. Janssen

Degree: Doctor of Ministry

Adviser: Dr. Stephen Grusendorf

The author presents research questions exploring the relationship between culture, spiritual transformation, and the use of personal power in Lead Pastors of the Northeastern five districts of the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Specifically, the author uses a mixed approach evaluating the continuing existence of the German Leadership Principle (furherprinzip) and its possible relationship to cultural shame and guilt in Germanic North American heritage pastors through the Mercurio Shame Inventory and the Personal Power Profile. Interviews with both Germanic and non-Germanic identifying Lead Pastors were conducted comparing views on cultural core values passed down within families, and cultural exposure to Grimms’ Children’s and Household Tales in childhood.
