St. Philip’s incorporates Servant Leader values into everything we do. Our culture, curriculum and core DNA emphasize the key tenants of what it means to be a Christ-led servant leader.
- Listening: Listening intently to what others are saying, as well as understanding their meaning
- Empathy: Understanding people’s intentions and perspective
- Healing: Supporting people emotionally, mentally, and physically
- Self-awareness: Looking inside and being able to be introspective
- Persuasion: Using influence and persuasion to move mountains and get people’s willing cooperation
- Conceptualization: Visualizing the big picture and being able to move beyond day-to-day realities
- Foresight: Knowing what will happen in the future by learning from the past
- Community building: Building a sense of oneness and wholeness with our communities – both small and large
