Called for leadership : psychological type profile of leaders within the newfrontiers network of churches in the United Kingdom

By Leslie J. Francis, Mandy Robbins and Andrew Ryland


The aims of this study are to examine the psychological type profile of leaders within the Newfrontiers network of churches and to compare those data with the psychological type profile of lead elders reported by Francis, Gubb, and Robbins (2009) in order to test whether the wider leadership reflected or complemented the profile of the lead elders. Data provided by 154 leaders, who completed the Francis Psychological Type Scales, suggested that the leadership teams reflect rather than complement the strengths of lead elders. Among these leaders there are preferences for extraversion (52%), sensing (71%), thinking (60%), and judging (86%). The combined STJ preference accounts for 40% of the leaders, indicating a church that is well equipped with practical, organisational management rather than with inspirational pastoral care
