n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - The dilemma of ethical leadership in present-day South Africa

Volume 37, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The changed and changing South African society necessitates that we find remedies for the many challenges with which this society is faced. One such challenge is the notion of leadership, which appears to have been redefined by the consumerist and materialist realities to which South Africa is exposed. This article attempts to elicit discussion on ethical leadership. In an attempt to rebuff the anti-intellectualism that is increasingly consuming the church, it places intellectual activities in a new perspective. In dealing with the South African context specifically, the article engages the recent political developments and challenges the church to become more involved instead of succumbing to new tendencies of self-absorption.
