There is potential for spiritual growth and expansion in the Seventh-day Adventists’ mission field for pastors. However, one identified challenge is that most Church members are easily discouraged and quick to relinquish their Christian zeal due to the strife of African pastoral leadership authority. This study affirms that the inability to apply the best biblical principles and application in the election of pastoral leaders leads to all kinds of unbiblical manipulations. The misguided steps for leadership authority are not for the Gospel Commission’s success but for self-aggrandized realities and other vices. This paper proposes the Mosaic Leadership Model as a case study for applying best practices for appointing pastoral leaders in Africa. The Mosaic leadership par excellence focuses, among others, on the leadership traits of humility, empathy, power sharing, vision, tenacity, heroism, self-reflection, patience, charisma, wisdom, compassion, and perseverance.
