MetadataShow full item record
This research posed and sought to answer the critical question of whether pastors of the National Council of Churches of Burundi (CNEB) can improve the impact of their pastorate by fundamental change within the church organisational functions. The research into the Church organisation workers is situated in an area such as “Pastoral Ministers” with the current research understood as a field of the “Impact of Pastoral Ministry on Transformation” in Burundi. Based on the theoretical and empirical findings of the study, the impact of pastoral ministry on the transformation of church organisations in CNEB churches was considered. The study sought to provide empirical evidence and an assessment of the impact of pastoral ministry principles in accordance with approaches that advocate for the use of impactful and fundamental change in the church’s fundamental and organisational functions for empowering the said organisations based on the acquisition of theological education skills. A mixed-methods approach with a sequential explanatory design was used in this study and the two designs both quantitative and qualitative were completed in sequence. Findings indicated that the pastors of CNEB were showing a slight positive impact with regard to pastoral ministry on the transformation of church organisations in Bujumbura. The results were far from church transformational and conclusive as regards the relevant impact of pastoral ministry in the local context from the main research question.
