Milligan asks region for examples of servant leadership

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (Jan. 15, 2009) — Milligan College is looking for examples of Christian leaders in the Tri-Cities who integrate their faith with their profession. In recent years, the college has recognized doctors, teachers, business people and various professionals in our region who exemplify Christian character not only in their church, but in their career and community. The college is now inviting recommendations for the 2009 “Leaders in Christian Service” program.

“This is not an award but a way to provide examples for our community and especially to our students of what servant leadership can look like on a daily basis in a variety of careers,” said Milligan President Donald R. Jeanes, who explained that Milligan’s mission and vision is to prepare servant-leaders in a variety of professions.

“Servant leaders live out their faith in every aspect of their life and are strong Christian examples beyond the walls of the church,” said Beth Anderson, director of Milligan’s Institute for Servant Leadership.

Anderson said they look for individuals who display excellence of Christian character; strong Christian example through professional, vocational or volunteer leadership; and evidence of Christian service in the church and community.

Recommendations for the “Leaders in Christian Service” program will be accepted until March 2. The 2009 Leaders in Christian Service will be presented at a special convocation service at Milligan College on April 7.

More information and nomination forms are available at or by calling the Institute for Servant Leadership at 423.461.8316.
