Sharing stories. Nurturing community. Serving Together.

Nurturing Servant Leaders

Communities become places of flourishing when true servants are empowered to serve and lead. We are a faith-based, experiential learning community that nurtures the practice of servant leaders in their place. Together we pursue healing, growth, social justice, and the unique gifts and purpose of all people, especially those who have been left on the margins of society.

We pursue servant leadership development in four interrelated ways

As part of God’s creation

Everyone counts, is worthy of respect and has a part to play in caring for the whole of creation.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said this: “any community who allows unemployed people to remain within it, will eventually perish because of them.” When individuals are not able to contribute their God-given gifts, they suffer spiritual disconnection resulting in a loss of meaning and purpose or a sense of belonging.

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)
