What We Do
 We build community by raising up servant leaders, servant ministries and servant churches.
At the Memphis School of Servant Leadership 
we develop classes, workshops, activities and
 worship for those who hunger for a 
powerfully spiritual, disciplined faith-life.

Jesus' teaching and ways of ministering
are at the center of what we do.   

We encourage developing a
 deeper relationship with Jesus who is experienced
 as transforming presence, guide and model. 

 And, we challenge seekers to bring God's 
dream of a reconciling world into the 
work of the church and culture.  

To put it simply we build community by 
raising up Servant Leaders, servant ministries
 and servant churches.

It is not often that I engage in 
something that I know for sure has 
changed my  life, rearranged my 
thought process, made me look at things in a whole new way; you could say 'the way'. 
But Servant Leadership has been 
that experience for me. 
The questions planted in my 
           brain reverberate, deepening."  

Ellen Morris Prewitt
    Servant leadership is a way of being and experiencing the world. You can begin this journey by participating in one of our servant leadership classes. Our work continues to evolve as we seek to provide a context  for a transforming relationship with Jesus.

     Most classes will be eight to twelve weeks in length and meet weekly for one hour and thirty minutes.  Classes require a serious commitment of study and reflection.  At the same time, they are designed to provide a supportive community in which each participant is helped toward an ever-deepening journey of faith and service. 

    If you are new to servant leadership, we suggest you take "Servant Leadership: Testing the Waters" for a basic introduction to the core servant leadership themes.

Life Writing Circle 

It has been said that there are 5.8 billion people 
in the world. Each person has their story, 
their good news and their experience of 
the world through their soul to write. 
We are not left alone to explore. 
The Writing Circle hopes to bring 
individuals from different walks of 
life together to develop their voices, 
write their gospel, and enjoy the gift 
of writing in community.

The Peaceable Kindom Now and Here

 Racism and reconciliation: evocative and powerful matters that will focus our gathering as we read from and reform the spiritual journey that has brought us thus far. We will reflect on racism, its meaning, definition and articulation in the context of our life together and apart in the local community, the United States and world. The Scriptures, along with other sacred writings that reflect the traditions of participants will be the guides with which we begin as we search for expressions of racial reconciliation that are personal, social and universal.
