Chapter Summary

A sample of 545 religiously committed Baptist youth were invited to imagine themselves serving as ordained ministers and to rate their approach to ministry on the revised Payne Index of Ministry Styles. The data demonstrated two main findings. First, while the young people's own psychological type colored their perception of ministry, this influence was not strong. Second, ministry was conceived more strongly in extraverted terms than in introverted terms. The chapter examines how religiously committed Baptist youth imagine the role of the minister within the categories provided by the Revised Payne Index of Ministry Styles. It has been the assessment of the extent to which the young people's own psychological type colors their perception of the role of the minister.
