    book excerpt

    In many ways the idea of being territorial is quite foreign to many leaders. The thought that any person in leadership could knowingly or subconsciously manipulate people to their own ends seems to run contrary the basic tenets of scripture. However in the age of the Post Modern Church we see a resurgence of territorial behaviour. I think it would be prudent at this stage to identify what territorialism really is.
    Territorialism is the action of defending one‟s own territory (land), belongings or herd (flock etc.). It is inherently aggressive in nature. It involves physical, or angry displays of aggression or dominance.
    How does this relate to the church in general? Any aggressive or domineering action, be that actual or suggested, that is designed to defend our own perceived territory or congregation can be deemed „Territorialism‟.
    Now there is a distinct difference between defending the flock against a legitimate threat and territorialism. The one has the good of the flock at its core the other is a selfish and ego-cantered desire to maintain the size of our congregation or esteem we are held in. Let‟s have a look at some clear examples. Perhaps this will help in understand what territorialism is.
