About this Segment
"Servant leadership demands a personal commitment that goes beyond mere pragmatic application and theoretical construct. Since servant leadership runs contrary to many leadership assumptions and applications, it requires of most who pursue it an intimate exploration. Such is my experience. This presentation is a way for me to examine, connect and describe my own personal journey. Given my commitment to take the claims, life and teachings of Jesus Christ seriously, the journey is deeply spiritual. I present this personal account in the hope that you will be encouraged to chronicle and examine your own journey as you explore the theory and practice of servant leadership."
--Dr. David Gyertson
