This month we welcome Brett Cooper, Bryan Sampson and Chris Thomas (Central Florida) and Lyle Copenhaver (Jacksonville) to the Level II! Welcome guys! We look forward to see how God will grow you as a leader and give you greater responsibility.
Those of you who are finishing up your final course for People First, remember to mail or fax (706-534-0462) your Personal Action Plans (PAP) at the end of each chapter. I’ll grade these and send back to you.
Our core course this month is Strategic Planning and Decision-makingand our text: Executive Values by Kurt Senske. In this course you will leave with a game plan for Christ-centered leadership that stresses the development of a healthy organizational culture, values-based strategic planning, mentoring, and balancing professional and personal lives.
Your first post will be up on the forum Monday, November 16th. You’ll make an initial post and respond to someone’s post.
Congratulations Becca Price (Women at the Well, PA) for moving on to your electives!
My name is Jarret Murray and I am thirty-three years old. I am from Labelle, Florida and am currently a student at the Ft. Meyers, Florida Teen Challenge.
I believe the purpose and calling God has given me is to serve others who have been through similar struggles. ELP has been a part of me fulfilling my purpose and calling by helping me to become a Christ-centered leader.
I started using drugs at the age of thirteen which led to my life spiraling out of control. I began leading the lifestyle of a criminal and ended up in jail and prison many times. I tried to stop using and get my life under control on my own many times. In 2012, after not being able to take anymore I tried to commit suicide multiple times. I eventually ended up back in jail where I learned about Teen Challenge. Through this center I have found God’s grace. He has restored my life and I helped me to find purpose for my life.
