Jenny Whitaker

In ministry and in our walk as Christians, leadership is ultimately about leading others to Christ.

Year: Organization Type:

When Jenny Whitaker first joined her church in Tallahassee, Florida, the preschool Sunday School class was merely a childcare room for all children from babies to 4-year-olds. She and her husband saw a need for regular volunteers who would teach the children about Jesus and have been privileged to be a part of growing the preschool ministry. Jenny also serves on the Missions Committee and as a Vacation Bible School teacher each year. She also recently helped start a women’s Bible study, leading the first study they offered.


To lead you must be humble, fully aware of your own sinfulness and because of that, serve from a place of understanding that you, in the same way as any you serve, have a deep need for a Savior.


As a leader, I am a servant, but it is important for me to remember that I am just as in need to be served, and that I can, at any moment, be in even more need for help with my own spiritual growth and journey through sanctification as any person or people whom I am serving through my position in leadership.


My leadership roles gave me the opportunity to witness in the midst of my storm, from a place of strength, and that alone may have served more than anything else on this list.
