Our Team

At SuzNaz we strive to teach and embody the pattern of servant-leadership exemplified by Jesus Christ. Jesus explained to his followers that their practice of leadership was to be distinctly different from the leadership often found in the world: "Whoever would be first among you must be servant of all".

(Mk 10:42-44; Mt 20: 25-28).
