This chapter examines the leadership ability of missionaries in the Central American solidarity movement. Missionaries were entrepreneurial in their ability to use their organizing skills, cultural knowledge, and institutional connections to bring together people from various regions and social strata. They were effective leaders in the movement because they were bilingual and bicultural, had moral credibility, and had ties to networks in both North America and Central America.
