KANSAS CITY, Mo. (BP)--U.S. Sen. Jim Talent, guest speaker at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s commencement May 22, challenged the 2004 graduates to be servant leaders.
      “The pre-requisite for leadership is service,” whether in the church, home or community, the Missouri senator said. Talent pointed to Jesus as the example of servant leadership as demonstrated at the Last Supper.
