Milligan asks region for examples of servant leadership

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Jan. 14, 2016) — 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 leaders and various professionals in the region who exemplify Christian character not only in their church, but also in their career and community. The college is now inviting recommendations for the 2016 “Leaders in Christian Service” program.

“Milligan’s mission is to prepare servant leaders in a variety of professions,” said Milligan President Dr. Bill Greer. “By recognizing leaders in Christian service from our community, we provide examples to our students and the region of what servant leadership can look like on a daily basis in many different careers.”

“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 that the selection committee looks 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 Feb. 26. The 2016 Leaders in Christian Service will be presented at a special convocation service in Milligan’s Mary B. Martin Auditorium located in Seeger Chapel on Tuesday, April 5.
