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.

Congratulations Becca Price (Women at the Well, PA) for moving on to your electives!

Congratulations to Rob Helfer (Vero Beach) and Sandra Marotta (Southwest Florida) on completing Level II! God has greater responsibilities in store for you; because you have been faithful in little, He’ll give you responsibility for more.
Congratulations also to Vicky Syfrett (West Florida) for moving on to your electives!
Our core course the next 3 months is Values in Leadership and our text: People First by Jack Lannom. People First™ teaches everyone how to value long-term, trust-based relationships over short-term gain; how to develop world-class leaders and pass on an enduring legacy. In this comprehensive leadership manual, the staff will study ten key principles in a systematic approach. It will challenge you as you work through thought provoking personal action plans at the end of each chapter. Get ready to be a Leader’s Leader!

We want to welcome Kerry Pevey (transfer from Accounts Payable Dept. ) to the Corporate Training Team as the ELP Administrative Assistant. Kerry is a great addition to the team and will be taking over the Level I application processing and book orders. Go ahead and send all Level I applications to her attention.
Level I Adult
This month we continue with our course Knowing and Understanding God’s Will and our text is Experiencing God by Blackaby, Blackaby and King. Your students should be about half way into this course and are learning more about being still and watching where God is working and join Him in His work rather than doing and then inviting God to bless their efforts. Look for opportunities to affirm and celebrate your students when you see them practically applying the principles in the book.
Level I Adolescent
Our course for the Adolescent track is Discover Your God-given Gifts and our text: Congratulations…You’re Gifted!by Doug Fields & Erik Rees. Your students will discover the place where your God-given passions and strengths intersect, and you’ll find the way you’re designed to serve.

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 an email at email@example.com. Blessings!
Thank you to all ELP Rep’s and Emerging Leaders who attended the Summit. It was a great time of worship, fellowship and training. Congratulations to Mike Randle (ELC) and Deanna Trujillo (Pensacola Women) on being Male and Female ELP Representatives of the year!
Level I Adult
It’s quite fitting that the next course immediately after a Summit is Servant Leadership and our text: Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges. “Jesus is clear about how He wants us to lead: He asks us to make a difference in our world by being effective servant leaders.” Servant leaders lead from the Heart, Head, Hands and Habits. The real secret to leading like Jesus is found in Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” Remember there is a DVD and a Weekly Meeting Guide for this course. If you don’t have a copy of the DVD, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send a copy for you.
Level I Adolescent
Our course for the Adolescent track is Self-Leadership and our text: Habitudes I – The Art of Self-Leadership by Tim Elmore. Our adolescents will learn about leading themselves first before aspiring to lead others.
