Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine leadership in the faith-based community from the perspective of six members of the Executive Board of the Black Ministerial Alliance of Greater Boston. Using portraiture methodology the research qualitatively examined leadership through the lived experiences of four male, and two female members of the board by: • defining leadership. • examining the role of the Black Church as an institution. • investigating the personal and professional influences that affect leadership. • examining the role the Black Ministerial Alliance of Greater Boston as an organization has on ones leadership. • determining what, in terms of leadership, led to development of the Victory Generation After-School Program. The study found common treads, which formed the leadership of these six men and women, and made recommendation on how the faith-based community can enhance its role in the development of leaders and its leadership.
