ELP Rep’s Link


It is with deep sadness that we say goodbye to Brittany Hughes, ELP Rep at Ft. Myers Women’s Center who served for 4 years. Brittany has served the students and staff well both at her local campus and at our ELP Summits. Brittany will be missed.


This month we welcome 4 new ELP Rep’s; Rod Hughes (Tallahassee), Dan Williams (Middle GA), Nicole Petty (Southwest FL W) and Jenny Northern (Columbus W). Welcome leaders! Thank you for answering the call to raise up sons and daughters on your campuses and to seed to the nations. Huge responsibility, but with the Holy Spirit’s guidance we can do it!

Level I Adult

This month our core course is Team Building and our text is The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player by John Maxwell. In this book Maxwell outlines the successes of team players who have been:

  • Intentional – making every action count toward a long-term goal
  • Relational – focused on others
  • Selfless – willing to take a subordinate role for the sake of the team
  • Tenacious – hardworking and optimistic in the face of setbacks

Maxwell shows how these qualities, and many others, impact the team and its success. The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player is not feel-good platitudes and abstract thinking but concrete actions designed to improve the value of every team player.

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Leading Others and our text: Habitudes 3 – The Art of Leading Others by Tim Elmore. This book is the final in a series of 3 books. 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.

Monthly Book Orders and Grades

Southeast region Rep’s can go to Google Drive and search for ELP Monthly Order Form and Grade Sheet Edited. Look for your center’s name in the tabs at the bottom and fill in your center’s information. No need to save or email the spreadsheet (Google Drive saves it and I can access the info from my Drive). If you place an initial order on the form and update the order later (i.e. add 2 more books) after we have ordered your books, please send Kerry Pevey (ELP Admin Asst) an email at kerry.pevey@teenchallenge.cc. Blessings!
