We are looking for people with exemplary service, which may be paid or unpaid, who have changed things, with an emphasis on practical achievement; have demonstrated innovation and entrepreneurship; are examples of the best sustained and selfless voluntary service or have delivered in a way that has brought distinction to Christian life.
