This article is a practical theological reflection on leadership practice. The study offers a critical
reflection of the Church’s practice of leadership as it interacts with the practices of the world.
The leadership has been focused upon conversation between ubuntu and servant leadership
as presented by their respective theorists. The two concepts ubuntu and servanthood are
congruent to each other, and both have been used in connection with leadership studies,
offering leadership a set of values. The key underlying principle is a focus on the importance
of service and community. These leadership concepts have been applied upon the Anglican
Diocese of Harare in a recent empirical study which revealed that, by and large, the institution
does not embrace ubuntu and servant leadership.
