Jesus was the greatest example of servant leadership. The Bible tells us, "The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve." (Matthew 20:28)
Launched in 2007, the Servant Team consists of approximately 50 students in grades 6-8. The Team meets every month to volunteer in the community. Students have raked leaves at the homes of people who are living with cancer, prepared nutritious meals that will feed hungry families around the world, purchased Christmas gifts for children with parents who are incarcerated in Canadian prisons, packaged humanitarian aid for delivery worldwide, and more! Here are a few of the organizations we have served over the years:
Another key element of the Servant Team is working alongside our parents. We want to model to our children that we are called to serve in God's Kingdom. Therefore, for every event, we ask parents to serve with us. Parental involvement at Servant Team events enhances the strong sense of community at our school.
Developing servant hearts in our students is key for them to develop a deeper relationship with their Lord and Saviour. Our prayer is that our kids will be inspired to also make a difference in God’s Kingdom here on earth as they continue to grow spiritually in Him.
