Act now: Nominations for the Merv Tarde Values in Leadership Circle close on Tuesday, July 31.

Any candidates selected will be announced at this year’s DFW Technology Prayer Breakfast in October.

Who to nominate? A Christian leader working in technology or at a tech company who:

  • Exhibits the fruit of the Spirit
  • Mentors others
  • Serves others
  • Shows humility
  • Inspires others with high expectations

The best example of these attributes was Merv Tarde himself, longtime vice president of information technology and chief information officer at Interstate Batteries. He modeled servant leadership in the DFW technology industry, serving on several boards and advisory councils, before losing his battle with cancer in 2014. His love for others and obedience to God set the standard we all should aspire to follow.
