Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Philippians 2:3-4


A Life Worth Living Starts By Serving Something Bigger Than Yourself
If you’d like to know some simple ways you can become a better leader of young men and women and in your community then this letter will show you how. My name is Tim Fanning. In 17 years as the Head Baseball Coach at Glenwood HS in Phenix City, AL I’ve won 8 State Championships and coached numerous All-Americans. I’m also the founder of “Serve to Lead”, a non-profit organization that uses athletics and Christ to impact lives around the world – through field construction, equipment donations, how-to clinics, bible distribution, and helping communities. All of this in hopes of inspiring a new generation of servant leaders.

A Life Worth Living Starts By Serving
Something Bigger Than Yourself.

She was living proof.

With strength of character, and a little of Mom’s encouragement, I was able to rise from my humble beginnings to finish near the top of my class in High School, then go on to play college and professional baseball, before succeeding as both an Athletic Director and Head Coach.

The fact of the matter is, just about everything I have built my life on was so graciously given to me by people you’ve never heard of, and I would venture to say you never will. These ‘servants’ are all around us and work small miracles everyday.

If you’ll only “tune in”, they’ll teach you all you need to know, and there will be plenty leftover to teach others! This was the basis of my 2017 book Serve To Lead, which I’m humbled to say garnered praise and accolades from many people I respect.

Since that time, God’s path for me has taken a turn I could not have predicted. Diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer, I faced my greatest challenge yet, and through this journey uncovered a depth of beauty and fulfillment in my life I never knew existed.

Which leads me to the reason for my letter today.

The sequel to my first book Serve To Lead 2 is now available to order.
