Servant leadership values and behaviors can help Christians experience the being and making aspect of discipleship life if applied well (Winston, 2003). Using phenomenological research method (Moustakas, 1994), interviews were conducted with 20 participants, describing the discipleship life experience of the staff at Life Ministry Zimbabwe in servant leadership context. Nine themes emerged through first-cycle and second-cycle coding process (Saldana, 2016).
