The Servant Organization for Jesus provides a fresh perspective and blending of best practices from the Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award Criteria for Achieving Performance Excellence with solid biblical exemplars for both servant leadership and continuous quality improvement. This is what results from the partnership of a long-serving Sheriff with numerous awards for performance excellence and an experienced pastor with a passion for effective ministry and service with operational excellence. Together Ed Dean and Drexel Brunson hold advanced degrees in Theology, Psychology, Law, Law Enforcement and Religion/Humanities. Together they have provided a valuable new resource for leaders who are committed to integrating a biblical framework with best practices in quality assurance. The book offers a wealth of resource links and practical applications detailed at the end of each chapter along with two valuable appendices – one on accepting and maintaining the call of service and the other the entire framework for the Florida Sterling Criteria for Performance Excellence. This is a great addition to the literature on servant leadership with a commitment to operational excellence.
