Call for Referees

The Journal of Applied Christian Leadership  is seeking scholars interested in the interface between faith, the practice of Christian leadership, and leadership theory and research to join its panel of referees. The JACL is published twice a year under the auspices of the Christian Leadership Center at Andrews University, a Seventh-day Adventist Institution. Manuscripts are peer reviewed.

The purposes of JACL are (1) to stimulate inquiry into the interplay of the tensions Christians experience as persons of faith and leaders in and of organizations or communities; (2) to be a bridge in the dialogue between practicing Christian leaders and researchers of leadership issues in various settings; and (3) to provide a forum for systematic reflection on the practice of Christian leadership, especially Servant Leadership, in the light of faith, the pressures of culture, and the mission of Christian organizations.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the peer review panel for JACL you may download the MS Word version of the Referee Information Form, complete it, and return by e-mail attachment to or send the filled out PDF copy to the editor by mail.
