Level I Adult 

We will start this month’s core course with, Knowing and Understanding God and our text: Experiencing God; Knowing and Doing the Will of God

by Henry and Ricard Blackaby and Claude King. This study will help to answer the cry of your heart for intimacy with God. If you are saying, “Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day (Psalm 25:4, 5 NKJV),” here is a study that will open your understanding of God’s will for your life and you will experience Him in a deep and profound way. Those who do this in-depth study will never be the same. Your heart will burn with a hunger for God and you will experience Him in a very personal way. Your comprehension of His will and purpose will be clearer and you will know your Heavenly Father as never before.

If you have students who are working on their elective track, please update the “ELP Monthly Order Form and and Tracking Sheet”, accordingly.

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Leading Others and our text: Habitudes #3“The Art of Leading Others” by Dr. Tim Elmore. Habitudes are images that form leadership habits and attitudes. This book is part of a series of three. It will enable you to leverage personal power instead of mere positional power. We believe leadership is a 360-degree proposition. The leadership journey begins with self-leadership. We must lead ourselves before we lead anyone else. Next, we learn to lead up-in relationships with those over us. Then, we learn to lead and influence those around us. Finally, we lead those under our care.
