THE SERVANT GENERAL
ON SERVANT LEADERSHIP
40 DAYS TO SERVANT LEADERSHIP
We have 7 Core Values, which we are basically trying to live
out. Though we still have a long way to go in truly becoming
the people God wants us to become (holy and perfect, and living
out our calling), we have gone a long way since the restoration
of 2007. But there is one Core Value that leaves much to be
desired, and that is Servant Leadership.
Centered on Christ.
spirituality is firmly established. We have the needed
formation programs. We have seen the call to holiness
and Christian perfection. We have the way to pass on the
faith to the next generations.

the very start, this has been what we are supposed to
be. This intensified at the start of the 1990’s,
as we embarked on rapid, massive and worldwide evangelization.
This has taken on a new dimension, since 2011, as the
Lord gave us LCSC.
3) Focused on the family.
special call to CFC has been to witness to marriage and
family life. We have our Family Ministries that provide
the so-called “womb-to-tomb” family renewal

of what is important to Jesus (his very own mission) and
to our Church, which seeks to build the Church of the
Poor. This is now one of our three core works (the others
being evangelization and family renewal). This work is
embodied in the No One in Need (NONe) movement.

is where we sorely fall short. Just like many in the Church,
many of our brethren and leaders still do not fully understand
what is servant leadership. Many do not fully embrace
the crucial virtues of humility, obedience, self-denial
and embrace of the cross. If we did, there would be no
strife, disunity or division, as all would just focus
on serving Christ according to Jesus’ own way of
7) Being a servant to the Church.
a number of our brethren have been serving in their parishes
and other Church organizations, though we did intensify
our involvement in parishes at the restoration of 2007,
it is only with LCSC that we begin to fully realize what
this Core Value is about, including the call to self-denial
and just total self-giving. It is servant leadership within
the context of work for the larger Church.
I have written a new book, “40 Days to Servant Leadership.”
It has 40 teachings or reflections, all based on the Bible.
It will help you greatly to become the Christian whom God
calls you to become, and to carry on His work as you serve.
It is intended for all, and especially for servant leaders.

a relevant part of the wave of the Spirit during these exciting
but challenging times in this third millennium, we need to
understand God’s view of servanthood. And live it out.
thank all those who have really given of themselves. The book
is dedicated to you, “To all leaders who know their
place, serving as the last and the lowest.”
