This month we welcome Rhome Smith and Sean Soltero (Central FL Men’s) to the Level II!. Both leaders are graduates of Teen Challenge and TCIMI. Welcome guys! The Lord will grow your leadership and ask you to come up higher. Looking forward to walk this journey with you.
We are studying the course Practical Christianity and our text: Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald.
The values of our Western culture inclines us to believe that the busy, publicly-active person in ministry is also the most spiritual. This course will guide you through practical spiritual disciplines which will assist in facing the daily challenges of being a disciple of Christ. Topics include: prayer, journaling, and being a good steward of time and resources. This course will help you draw attention to the difference between “knowing truth” and “living truth.” Print and fill-in your study guide as you go through the chapters. This will be graded at the end of the course.
Your first post will be up on the forum Monday, February 15th. You’ll make an initial post and respond to someone’s post.
Congratulations Rob Helfer (Vero Beach) and Nick and Rachel Aylor (Southwest Florida) for moving on to your electives!
Remember to return the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership DVD’s by July 31st. The cost to purchase a new DVD set is $299.99 (plus tax and shipping) and will be charged to your center if these are not returned.
Our core course this month is Conflict Management and our text: The Peacemaker by Ken Sande. Peacemakers are people who breathe grace. They draw continually on the goodness and power of Jesus Christ, and then they bring His love, mercy, forgiveness, strength, and wisdom to the conflicts of daily life. The emerging leader staff will learn to bring grace to conflict through Glorifying God, Getting the Log Out of Your Eye, Gently Restore and Go and Be Reconciled. The workbook for this course will be sent to you via email – look out for it. Your first post will be up on the forum on Monday, July 21st.

Level I Adult
This month we continue with our course Boundaries and our text: Boundaries by Dr’s. Cloud & Townsend. Boundaries define what is me and what is not me. “Learn the power of saying ‘no’ because what you focus on expands. You may not go wide but you may go deep.” ~ Tim Elmore
Level I Adolescents
The course for the adolescent track is Self Leadership and our text: Habitudes I – “The Art of Self Leadership by Dr. Tim Elmore. Elmore says “the leadership journey begins with self-leadership – we must lead ourselves before we lead anyone else.” In our daily interaction with others it’s the invisible parts of our lives that is most important. Do you make a difference in the world you live in? How do you add value to others?
Monthly Book Orders and Grades
Southeast 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 me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and copy email@example.com to let us know.
