Banke, Susan; Maldonado, Nancy; Lacey, Candace H.; Thompson, Steve
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Florida Educational Research Association. (Miami, FL, November, 2005)
This qualitative study examined the spiritual experiences of Christian school leaders. A purposeful, nominated sample of 12 Christian school leaders was selected. In-depth, open-ended interviews were conducted, audio taped, and then transcribed verbatim. Data analysis was based on Rudestam and Newton (2001) and Creswell's (1998) method of researcher description. Findings indicated participants believe that spiritual leadership is an active, personal process for each individual; that spiritual leaders see the importance of relationships with others, exhibit personal growth, provide for needs and opportunities, and make personal and spiritual growth conducive in the school community; and that Christian school leaders make every effort to establish and maintain a school that is both spiritually and academically excellent. Interview questions are appended.
