In the light of declining membership in Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and its affiliated organizations, there is a lack of measurement of perceptions of servant-leadership practice and its correlation with job satisfaction in building healthy organizations. A cross-sectional, quantitative, and correlational design measured the perceptions of servant-leadership practice among administration personnel and faculty, and its correlation with job satisfaction in Midwest College, affiliated to ELCA. The survey instrument, Laub's Organizational Leadership Assessment (1998), Educational Version, included a demographic questionnaire to evaluate the diversity profiles of the participants. The analysis revealed a moderate health organization with leaders exercising a positively paternalistic leadership style. Improving the organizational health and Lutheran identity by following servant-leadership style is discussed including recommendations.
