    Abstract

    In this discussion on leadership in the Lutheran school community, Tania Nelson draws upon her doctoral research on the contributions of principals and pastors to the mission of Lutheran primary schools in Australia. The current preparation of leaders is highlighted, differing approaches to leadership are revealed and dimensions of leadership explored. The paper concludes by recording challenges for contemporary leaders of Lutheran schools and calls for the prioritising of leadership development programs for both principals and prospective leaders, and for pastors who minister in a school.
