Regency Leadership Theory

Regency Leadership Theory

Leadership for the Next Generation

Regency leadership theory presents a model for building future leaders for the modern world based on Christ’s message to His disciples in Matthew 28. God’s design for the leadership of His church rests on Christ keeping full authority over His church and His continuous leadership presence with His followers. Under regency-leadership theory, those in church leadership roles lead solely as Christ’s regents - acting as an agent or representative for the absent King. Regency leadership theory further argues the future of the church rests in existing leadership’s effectiveness in developing future generations of regency-leaders capable and committed as Christ’s agent to guide Christ’s church into the emerging world.
