Servant Leadership for Team & Organizational Effectiveness

In the Doctor of Ministry in Servant Leadership for Team and Organizational Effectiveness, we help students build skills in transformational servant leadership.

Using both biblical perspectives and contemporary scholarship, professors and students dig into what servant leadership looks like in today's world.
