At Urban Mission we adhere to a "servant leader" model of leadership. By this we mean that our leaders are servants first and leaders second. Each one of our elders and governing board members also serve in a variety of ways throughout our church family. We believe this is the example that Jesus set for us as He said, "The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve and give His life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45)
