This research aims to study whether the ‘transformational leadership with fatherly attributes’ style of the lead pastor in a church, within the context of ecclesiology, impacts the effectiveness of the church. The research is proposed to be undertaken in the Philippines’ National Capital Region (NCR). The NCR consists of sixteen highly urbanised cities that have a population of approximately 13 million people. There has been evidence from many types of research on transformational leadership that correlates positively with organisational effectiveness. This research explores the importance of the fatherly attributes that are closely associated with transformational leadership. Past research has also shown that transformational leadership’s influence on subordinates was like a ‘benevolent father.’ The outcome of this research aims to show that the fatherly attributes of transformational lead pastors are a vital element for congregational well-being and growth.
