Servant leadership at Goshen College is based on a leadership ability that empowers self and others and a healthy understanding of self and others that is reflected in relationships of interdependence and mutual accountability.
We believe that servant leadership is embodied perfectly in the life and person of Jesus Christ. As servant leaders we are given guidance in Matthew 20:26-28 where it says, “But whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant.” Servant leaders strive to humbly set aside self-interest for the interests of others, leading in the strength of love given by God, because love for others builds up God’s community. By following Christ’s example, we create a culture of leadership characterized by joyful servant hood.
The Intercultural Servant Leader Lunch Series invites Goshen College students, faculty, administrators, staff and the community to hear from students and employees what servant leadership means to them in an ever-changing world.
You are invited to listen to service experiences both international and local. You are invited to hear about servant leader experiences in programs such as SST, Mennonite Voluntary Service, Mennonite Central Committee and other organizations.
The lunch series gatherings are held once a month in the CIIE conference room. You are welcome to bring your lunch and enjoy the presentation at the same time. In order to plan for seating and room set-up we are asking that people register in advance because space is limited. You can sign up here: Registration Form
Come, listen and be inspired about servant leadership in action!
