dc.description.abstractThe purpose and procedure. This dissertation has sought to determine some of the characteristics of the leadership role of the Protestant Negro minister in the light of the urbanization of the Negro community. The study uses the characteristics, role conceptions and role expectations of Chicago Negro Baptist ministers and laymen as illustrative content and Ideal-type sociological theory as an interpretative framework. The hypotheses. The dissertation examines five hypotheses: (1) The ministerial leadership role will in its early stages be more closely related to Gemeinschaft characteristics because the urbanization involved takes place in a transplanted folk culture. (2) The role images and role expectations will reflect this urban-folk conflict and in doing so will lack role clarity. (3) The impact of urbanization upon the social characteristics of the Negro community will create a situation in which the needs for trained leadership become acute. (4) The institutional structure of the Negro church in becoming urbanized will have gained independence but needs a type of organization compatible with institutionalized ecumenical Christianity. (5) An analysis of the Negro churches in Chicago reflects this fourfold sociological condition. [TRUNCATED]en_US
