The Servant Leadership Series is the cornerstone leadership program offered by MCCS. It is a unique study and activities based curriculum that is designed to encourage age-appropriate faith development for Scouts and non-scouts alike.
The concept is simple. The involvement of parent, child, and mentor together, sharing in activities, Bible study and faith discussion, culminates in a servant heart in all who participate in this spiritual adventure.
Our families, churches, nation and world need Christian servant leadership today. The Servant Leadership Series has been designed by MCCS to emphasize the development of Christian values, character and work ethics.
The series addresses servant leadership at four stages of life. The series will help youth and adults to cultivate and model servant leadership and will encourage a lifetime of servanthood through this recognition program.
As the youth matures to adulthood, programs in this series build on what is learned in each preceding program. Each program has been designed considering the aptitudes and interests of a particular age group.
The Servant Leadership Series has been prepared in the spirit of Philippians 2:1-11 — modeled upon the example of Jesus Christ, who “took the very nature of a servant.” The most effective style of leadership — and the only everlasting leadership — in our families, churches, nation and world is Servant Leadership.
