Beginning Monday January 15, the 10 week foundational course offering, “ Servant Leadership I” will return to St. Paul’s. When planning your Spring 2018 calendar, please note this course will meet on Monday nights at 6 - 8 p.m. from January 15 - March 19, 2018.
Servant leadership is a paradoxical term that illuminates the true nature of genuine leadership at every level of life (workplace, community, family, church and world). Becoming a servant leader brings us to the very heart of Christian discipleship, the way of Jesus. It is a course made for these times of turmoil in our society. Participants are offered an opportunity to re-examine their inner life as it relates to the “outer” world.
Servant leadership redefines “power” offering a compelling model for contemporary Christian living and a spiritual path that connects faith with daily life. In this course, we explore central themes of servant leadership — communion, community, compassion, and call — and their interrelatedness. Being in a leadership position in your daily life is NOT a requirement for taking this class.
From 2006 -2014, St. Paul’s operated a Servant Leadership School offering courses to our community on varied spiritual topics for those adults wanting to have deeper spiritual experiences. Many Adult Spiritual Formation classes were offered over 9 years and approximately 1,000 students participated.
Faculty for Spring 2018 are: Rev. Suzanne Stoner, Rev. Sara Milford, Linda Jones, Bob McMath, Judi Neal, Lloyd Swope and Kaye Bernard, with presiding Chaplain Trent Palmer.
