Rep’s Link – Feb 2016

Level I Adult

We continue with our course Boundaries and our text: Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud. By now your students should be half way in the book. Remember there is no test for this course. You’ll assess their Study Guide and involvement at weekly meetings.

 

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Discover your God-given Purpose and the text: Chazown by Craig Groeschel. The Hebrew word “Chazown” (pronounced “khaw-ZONE”) means dream, vision or revelation. Craig Groeschel believes that your very own Chazown is hiding just under the surface of your life in three often overlooked areas: your core values, your spiritual gifts, and your past experiences. Pursue your Chazown and simultaneously improve five critical aspects of your life – your relationship with God, your relationships with people, your finances, your health and fitness, and your vocational life. You were born with your own Chazown. Do you know what it is?

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 to me at andree.aiken@teenchallenge.cc. All new applications must be in by the 10th of the month for students starting the 15th.

 

Rep’s Link – Nov 2015

Welcome!

We welcome our new Rep’s this month Bryan Sampson (Central Florida) and returning Rep Jen Baisden (Lakeland). Thank you for answering the call to raise up sons and daughters!

Level I Adult

Our new course is Servant Leadership and our text: Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard & Phil Hodges. In this course Blanchard talks about leading with your heart, head, hands and habits. Be sure to print out the Rep’s Weekly meeting template which will help with your weekly meetings. The videos for the weekly meetings can be accessed here.

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Building Others and our text: Habitudes II – the Art of Connecting with Others by Dr. Tim Elmore. Your students will learn how they influence those around them. Sociologists tell us the most introverted of people will influence 10,000 others in an average lifetime. If introverts influence 10,000 then extroverts influence 20,000. So how do you influence others? Your students will learn how they make a difference in the world they live in and how to add value to others.

Core Courses

Our core course this month is Practical Christianity and our text: Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald. The values of our Western culture incline us to believe that the busy, publicly-active person in ministry is also the most spiritual. Tempted to give imbalanced attention to the public world at the expense of the private, we become involved in more programs, more meetings. Our massive responsibilities at home, work, and church have resulted in a lot of good people on the verge of collapse. Gordon MacDonald equips a new generation of emerging leaders to live life from the inside out, cultivating the inner victory necessary for public effectiveness.  Your first post will be up on the forum on Monday, August 18th.
