Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to better understand leadership in faith-based nonprofits (FNPs) through interviews of managers and executive directors of FNPs. In addition, based upon the data gathered, to construct an FNP leadership paradigm (FLP). To assist in this effort, the Covenantal Framework of Action (CFA) was introduced to serve as a theoretical framework for assessing FNP organizational/ leadership processes and influences. CFA is characterized by noncentralization, participatory decision-making, and servant leadership. Construction of the FNP leadership paradigm and its comparison to CFA revealed that FLP and CFA were similar along every dimension of CFA.
