Main Article Content

Kevin Scott Hall


Utilizing the book of Acts, Paul’s methods of cross-cultural leadership will be explicated. It will be established that Paul was a cross-cultural leader by understanding his identity and the contexts in which he led. Then, Paul’s methods of cross-cultural leadership will be extrapolated from Acts, finding that he is intent on context-adapting, connection-making, foundation-grounding, relationship-building, and ministry-sharing. Paul’s methods and principles from Acts are a guide for leaders who desire to be cross-culturally effective, especially for Christian leaders who share Paul’s same vision of glorifying God through making and teaching disciples.
