Plurality of Leadership
The word “Plurality” used in context of the Church is a way of describing shared leadership.
It is a way of referencing back to the concepts established in the New Testament
that leadership was (and is) a team enterprise, not one man’s charisma.
When leaders acted in the New Testament, it was as a ruling body, not a one-man decree (see Acts 13:1–3; 15:22–23).
Leadership at The Encounter is based on this concept.
The only central figure at The Encounter is Jesus and him crucified and raised again.
His example of servant leadership drives every decision we make as a team.
