Journey in Servant Leadership, A / Armstead, Marcia B. / Paperback / LSI

945-7065 L


About the Book 

The life of Marcia B. Armstead has been one of service and adventure, and this is her story of servant leadership as God directed her. She has filled many roles in her life: that of a mother and pastor’s wife, a working woman whose career spanned many years and included positions at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, federal and state judicial systems, and as an administrative assistant to two Seventh-day Adventist General Conference vice-presidents.

Marcia attended Oakwood College (now Oakwood University) and Andrews University, and fulfilled the lifelong dream of receiving a college degree after her retirement. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Management in Christian Leadership from Colorado Christian University. The most fulfilling part of her life came in her later years when God called her to ministry as Assistant for Pastoral Care in the Rocky Mountain Conference. She helped her church and pastor develop ministry outreach programs (Card Ministry, Foyer Ministry, Prayer Ministry, Mentoring, and Litigation advocacy) based on servant leadership.

Marcia’s story will strengthen your daily practice of personal evangelism--welcome, connect, and nurture—with those you meet. Her experiences demonstrate what God can do through anyone who gives their heart to Him in leadership.

Available in PAPERBACK and eBOOK formats.

  1. Beautiful, Honest, and Inspirational Story of One Woman's Love for our Lord! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2022

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    "I was blessed in a mighty way to read A Journey in Servant Leadership! Marcia's story inspired me, humbled me, and moved me. Her vision, commitment, and tireless effort demonstrates how one woman who is totally focused on the Lord, can impact the hearts and lives of so many people, too numerous to count. She changed how churches reach out to members, new and old, how to personalize church for it's members, and how to impact and bless the community. Marcia has certainly made a memorable impact on several churches and indeed on the city in which she lives. It is clear to see that Marcia walks with the Lord when you see her superhuman energy! What an amazing woman! "

  6. Thank you for this guidebook... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2022

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    "This compelling self-portrait is required reading for anyone considering or currently following the eternally challenging path of servant leadership. Essentially, to become a successful and an effective individual in this genre of motivation and service to mankind., one must be prepared to engage in truthful, rigorous and sometimes painful self-analysis to get beyond “self” and on to dedicated spiritually engaged outward-looking service. Marcia Armstead artfully and systematically graciously shares her journey of discovery and self-actualization with us. that is so evident in her multiple accomplishments over a lifetime of servant leadership. Thank you for this guidebook of personal antidotes, signposts and boundaries that you have encountered in your odyssey of achievement. I am confident that “A Journey in Servant Leadership” will achieve wide circulation and enjoy long life as a source of inspired reference."

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    “In the broad mix of Christian literature there are instructive devotionals, confessional autobiographies and heart-warming mission stories. Marcia Armstead’s, ‘A Journey in Servant Leadership,’ combines them all! No pious proclamations, no lengthy formulas, no “my way or the highway” attitude, rather a daring and devoted life richly used by the hand of God. I found it hard to put down and you will too!”
