Rep’s Link – July 2015

Welcome

This month we welcome three new Rep’s –  Isaac Wagner (Vero Beach), Dale Peter (Women at the Well) and Amanda Taylor (Director) at Hosanna House! Isaac graduated Vero Beach June 2012, graduated the Emerging Leaders College last month and was hired on as staff at Vero Beach. Dale entered Teen Challenge in Ft Myers, Florida September 2012; transferred to Women at the Well 2013 and graduated 2014 and was hired on staff January of this year.  Amanda Taylor is a veteran ELP’er – graduated Columbus W in 2007, graduated TCIMI Jacksonville 2008, served at Pen W & Col W as ELP Rep and is now the Director and ELP Rep for the adolescents at Hosanna House. Welcome Rep’s! You are all products of the emerging leaders program and I know you will raise up sons and daughters (gen-next) to sustain TC for the next 50 years to come.

Level I Adult

This month we continue with our core course Knowing and Understanding ExperiencingGodGod’s Will and our text: Experiencing God by Henry and Richard Blackaby and Claude King. Your students should be at the mid-point in their books so continue to press in with them. Have you considered doing an activity that will allow you and your students to experience God at new levels at your weekly meeting? When I did this course with a few ladies at Admin, we went for a prayer walk by the River walk. It was a beautiful setting to experience God with them. At the end of the time, we placed memorial stones at a tree – our commitment to continue grow in Experiencing God.

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Servant Leadership and our text: Help! I’m a Student Leader  by Doug Fields. Our text is set in the atmosphere of a youth ministry, but gives practical leadership lessons to help students lead like Jesus, figure out how to be more helpful, listen more, getting others involved and deepen their faith.

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 information. No need to save or email the spreadsheet (Google Drive saves it and we 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. All new applications must be in by the 10th of the month for students starting the 15th. Come on Reps, get your stuff in on time, I know you can do it!

ELP Rep’s Link – June 2015

Welcome

Over the last few months we’ve had a few changes in Rep’s within our region; we want to welcome new Rep’s  Danielle McKinney (Pen W), Todd Adams (Pen M), Frank Carbonell (Tallahassee), Sandra Marotta (Southwest FL W) and Rachel Olmeda (Lakeland). Welcome leaders! Thank you for answering the call to raise up sons and daughters on your campuses who know their identity in Christ, their purpose in life and are ready to serve the ministry and the Kingdom of God. Huge responsibility, but with the Holy Spirit’s guidance we can do it!

Level I Adult

This month is the beginning of  the core course cycle with Knowing and Understanding ExperiencingGodGod’s Will and our text: Experiencing God by Henry and Richard Blackaby and Claude King (ISBN # 978-1415858387). God is inviting us to experience Him in an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to us His will, His ways and His work. When you realize where God is working, you can join Him in what He is doing. You will have great discussions in your weekly ELP meetings in this 2-month course!

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Leading Others and our text: Habitudes #3 – TheHabitudes 3-FB  Art of Leading Others by Dr. Tim Elmore. The images Dr. Elmore provides are memorable and powerful in conveying key leadership principles. We want to communicate to our students that in the ELP leadership starts first with leading yourself well – then with connecting with others – and finally, we lead those in our care.
