BENTLEY, W.. The formation of Christian leaders: A Wesleyan approach. Koers (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.75, n.3, pp.551-565. ISSN 2304-8557.

The problem of leadership is that it is defined according to a very narrow understanding. It postulates that all people can be divided into two categories. People are either leaders or followers. This article explores the formation of Christian leaders using the model offered by the Wesleyan revival of eigteenth-century England. It asks what leaders would look like when we use the Wesleyan definition instead of the leader-follower understanding to which we have grown accustomed.

Keywords : accountability; holiness; leadership; Wesleyan revival.
