領導學研究中心   Centre for Leadership Studies

主任:王健安博士

領導學研究中心成立於2016年。它是一個研究平台,從基督教領導的角度,將嚴謹的學術和教會牧養的觀點,納入作加拿大和海外華人及亞裔信仰群體相關和及時的探索。中心的目標是通過出版和學術與教會牧養研討聚會(如會議,研討會和專題討論會)來發起和促進研究和表達成果,在華人教會中促進有效的對話和持續的學習

中心設立並運作於加拿大華人神學院(CCST)的整體結構中,它的研究執行模式是與其他加拿大華人神學院各部門/計劃/組織(如教牧學博士部和國際基督教教育學院)並與其他志同道合的加拿大或國外機構合作進行研究工作。這種研究工作本質上是多元化的,並且要求滿足與學術和教會牧養相關程度的學術水平。與此同時,中心期盼成為一個以基督為中心的機構,以神的國度為重點,來鞏固所進行的研究。

Founded in 2016, the Centre for Leadership Studies is a research forum that brings academic rigor as well as ministerial perspectives into probing issues that are relevant and timely to the Chinese & Asian faith communities both in Canada and abroad from a Christian leadership perspective. The objective of the Centre is to initiate and facilitate such research and to disseminate its findings through publications and academic/ministerial events (e.g., conference, seminar, and symposium) that foster healthy dialogue and sustainable learning of the critical issues that surface from the research among the Chinese Church.

Operating out of the overall structure of the Canadian Chinese School of Theology (CCST), the Centre partners with other CCST departments/programs/institutions (e.g., D. Min., International School of Christian Education) and other like-minded institutions in Canada and abroad to collaborate and share resources in the research endeavors. Such research engagements are multidisciplinary in nature and subscribe to a level of academic standards that would speak to both academic and ecclesiastical circles. In so doing, the Centre desires to be an institution that is Christ-centred with a Kingdom-focus that ultimately undergirds the research.

The past and current research initiatives include:

  • "Listening to Their Voices: An Exploration of Faith Journeys of Canadian-born Chinese Christians" (completed and published in July 2018; Revised Edition In Sept, 2019; Abridged Version in March, 2019). The PDF of the Revised Edition can be downloaded from here: ↓ LTTV Donate

  • The "Voices of Pastors" is a survey research into the well-being and the leadership ministries of pastors at the Chinese Immigrant Churches in Canada irrespective of their ethnicity. The study was launched in the fall of 2020 and date collection is completed, with 275 pastors participated in the survey. Data analysis is underway.
  • "Obedient to the Call" is a qualitative research undertaken jointly between Ambassador for Christ in the U.S. and the Centre for Leadership Studies to examine how the North American-born Chinese missionaries come to understand their call and be obedient to engage in full-time mission around the globe. 40 missionaries (22 US-born and 18 Canadian-born) and 10 Key Opinion Leaders (e.g., pastors, parents of missionaries and leaders of mission organizations) have been interviewed and analysis is underway.
