Abstract

This study shows a relationship between the quality of church leadership and changing times in the context of congregational interests. As Christ is the head of the church, and the church is the body of Christ, the quality of church leadership must refer to the leadership of Christ. The critical question then is whether people can have the leadership quality of Jesus completely and permanently.This involves difficult things such as unique love, holiness, truth and unlimited supernatural abilities (reviving the dead). Nevertheless, a church leader (pastor) still must refer to the leadership of Christ in the Bible.With the rapid change of times in the millennial era, the quality of leadership of a pastor is crucial because the changes that occur greatly influence the life of the church either spiritually and worldly. One of the keys to overcoming the changing times is to understand that change is constant. The Word of God in Ecclesiastes 1: 9 states that there is nothing new under the sun, what ever was will be again, whatever have been made will be done again. Therefore, there will be repetitions but in different settings, different technologies, different tools, a different world from generation to generation.
