As the center of Christianity moves increasingly towards the Global South, the need for the development of pastoral leaders in these regions will expand exponentially. Many potential leaders face obstacles of traveling vast distances, possessing insufficient finances, or inadequate academic preparation in pursuit of further development. In the sparse number of instances where training is available, Christian leadership development is often focused on practical application rather than foundational theology. With this in view, this paper explores the potential use of metaphors in leadership training for its ability to bridge gaps in contextualization and establish global leaders for the Church who are strengthened by foundational theology that grants them a core identity from which to lead from.
