Servant-leadership is characterized by the desire to serve and empower the people around you.
An essential principle of servant-leadership is stewardship. This principle promotes an active responsibility toward our world community expressed in the care of what is entrusted to humankind; the whole of creation. This worldview equips our servant-leaders to address spiritual, social, and material poverty in our local and global community.
