Level II – Mar 2016

Welcome

This month we welcome John Powell and Kori Briscoe (Hope Outreach, Columbia, SC) to the Level II!. Both leaders are graduates of the Emerging Leaders College and are now serving at our Hope Outreach in SC. Welcome guys! Thank you for answering the call of God on your lives and for being a student of your call. The lessons we can learn in leadership never ends. Looking forward to walk this journey with you.

Congratulations! 

Congratulations Becca Price, Women at the Well, PA for completing the Level II! Congratulations to Mike Spivey, Jacksonville for moving on to your electives!

 

Core Courses

Our next core course is Ethics and Integrity and we’ll look at a wonderful book by Dr. Henry Cloud called Integrity – the courage to meet the demands of reality.

Oftentimes we do not connect the dots with how integrity of character really works day to day, and how it affects our real results in the area of life which matter to us most. In this book we will look at six areas of character that will help us to connect the dots. A person with integrity has the ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances.

Your first post will be up on the forum Monday, March 14th. You’ll make an initial post and respond to someone’s post.

Rep’s Link – Dec 2015

Welcome

This month we have three Teen Challenges implement the ELP on their campuses – Primrose Hill – MO, Delmarva – DE and a re-start at North Carolina Boy’s Academy. We welcome Susie Baier, Saint Clair Sterling and Bush Coleman as ELP Representatives respectively. Thank you for answering the call to raise up the next generation of leaders in Teen Challenge!

Level I Adult

Our new course is Core Values and our text: Our Core Values by Dr. Jerry Nance. The core values of an organization define the essence of the organization; they are a very small set of guiding principles that have a profound impact on how everyone in the organization thinks and behaves. In this course, the emerging leaders will learn our values of integrity, compassion, community, vision, stewardship, faith and servanthood.

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Leading Others and our text: Habitudes III – the Art of Leading Others by Dr. Tim Elmore. Your emerging student leaders will learn how to lead those in their care. Habitudes furnishes images that teach them leadership truths which will enable them to wisely influence their world.

Level II Link – June 2015

Welcome

This month we welcome Shannon White (Columbus Girls) and Mike Spivey (Jacksonville) to the Level II. Shannon has been serving with the Columbus Girls for 3 years and Mike has been serving at Jacksonville for a year. Welcome leaders! This is the level of the ELP where you will truly learn self-leadership and personal responsibility.

Core Courses

For those of you who have not returned the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership DVD’s to the ELP Office, please return them soonest. If not, we’ll charge your center the cost of the DVD’s ($299.99) starting Jun 15th. 

Our next Core Course is Ethics and Integrity and our book: Integrity by Dr. Henry Integrity PICCloud. Clouds’ byline for Integrity is “the courage to manage the demands of reality.” Most people define integrity as “doing what is right when no one is looking” but another, even greater, perspective Cloud gives is “integrity is integrated character; who a person is will ultimately determine if brains, talents, competencies, energy, effort, deal-making abilities, and opportunities will succeed.”

Your first post for this course will be up on the forum Monday, June 15th. You’ll make an initial post and then respond to someone’s post.

ELP Events

Registration is now open for the ELP Summit, April 23-25. If you and your students are planning to attend, go ahead and reserve your spot! Remember to indicate your t-shirt size and the sizes of your students when you register.

Level I Adult

This month our core course is Core Values and our text: Our Core Values by our very own Dr. Jerry Nance. Our Core Values connect our people to our culture. We are encouraged to practice these 7 values every day; during our operations, our decisions, how we act and what we believe. Dr. J says “my prayer is that this book will challenge you to become a person of integrity and compassion, who is full of vision and faith.” “I trust you will apply these truths in your community, and practice stewardship, and servanthood.”

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Discover Your Purpose and our text: Chazown by Craig Groetschel. Chazown (pronounced khaw-ZONE) from the Hebrew, meaning a dream, revelation, or vision. You were born with your own Chazown. Do you know what it is? God calls us to live on purpose, keeping the end in view. God’s vision for you is bigger than you can imagine and impossible for you to do on your own.

Welcome

This month we welcome Adam Holderread (TC Ozark’s) to the Level II! Welcome Adam we look forward to the rich insights you’ll bring to the group and our growing together as leaders.

Core Courses

Our core course this month is Ethics and Integrity and our text: Integrity by Dr. Henry Cloud. Integrity—more than simple honesty, is the key to success. A person with integrity has the ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances. In Integrity, he explores the six qualities of character that define integrity, and how people with integrity:

  • Are able to connect with others and build trust
  • Are oriented toward reality
  • Finish well
  • Embrace the negative
  • Are oriented toward increase
  • Have an understanding of the transcendent

Integrity is not something that you either have or don’t, but instead is an exciting growth path that all of us can engage in and enjoy.

Your first post will be up on the forum on Monday, September 15th.
