How can we equip faith communities to play a vital role in public life? This question has driven Dr. McKinney’s research and education efforts in Protestant churches for more than two decades, and continues to inform his work as president at PSR. His focus is on leadership patterns in American Protestantism, congregational studies and issues in progressive Christianity. He is a sociologist and ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. His publications include American Mainline Religion: Its Changing Shape and Future (1987), The Responsibility People (1994), and Studying Congregations (1998).
