Who We Are
Our Team & Leadership
A servant leader’s focus is on serving others rather than serving themselves or being served by others. A servant leader meets people where they are at so they can climb to the top alongside them rather than charging ahead. Servant leaders don’t want to be successful all on their own. Servant leaders are looking to build a team not an empire, because they know once they build the team, success follows. These are the type of men and women that make up the leadership team of Faith Tabernacle headed up by our Bishop.
