A Study of Current Leadership Styles in the North African Church

by Farida Saïdi

Indigenous church leadership is a new phenomenon in North Africa. Until recently, non-Muslim background believers were the only leaders of churches in this region. With the current growth of national churches, there are increasingly more leaders from a Muslim background leading to a diverse range of leadership styles. This publication explores church leadership in North Africa, investigates common values, beliefs and cultures among church leaders.
