TEACHINGSESSIONS

SESSIONONE: SERVANT LEADERSHIP

What is servant leadership? The concept of servant leadership begins by being a servant first. A servant leader must first learn to serve before taking on a leadership position. Servant leaders serve because they are motivated by model of Jesus.

SESSIONTWO: COURAGE TO CHANGE

(OURSELVES) Some of the most courageous things we’ll ever do will be to change things about ourselves. To take a risk, to let go of something, to change a behavior, or to make a sacrifice – change is necessary for transformation to take place. Leaders are continually making small degrees of change in order to become stronger and more faithful.

SESSIONTHREE: COURAGE TO SPEAK

(OUR WORDS) Our words have the power to destroy, build up, defend, save, discourage, empower, and so much more. There are many times in life where courage is required to speak and use words of life, love, and hope. Teenagers continually face the challenge in their schools of how they use their words. This session is a call to courageously use our words to be life giving and to boldly point the world to Jesus.

SESSIONFOUR: COURAGE TO BE WITH

(OUR RELATIONSHIPS) The heart of LEAD222 is mentoring. Who are you choosing to be with? Students must have the courage to make intentional choices about which relationships will matter most to them. This message will include the Be With Constellation and encourage students live the constellation. In addition to the Be-With Constellation equal emphasis will be given to students making courageous decisions within their existing relationships. How can you lead those in your life? Who is the Lord stirring you to be courageous with?

SESSIONFIVE: COURAGE TO LEAD

(OUR ACTIONS) Every person possesses the courage to do extraordinary things for the Kingdom. The thing that stops most people from ever doing anything that truly matters is the paralyzing effect of fear. In this session we want to identify some common fears that typically hinder people from becoming the courageous leaders that God has enabled us to be. This session is a call to overcome fears and become a person of courageous action.

Have an amazing experience with your students!
