Elective Track

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

October is Celebrate Rep’s Month!!

The ELP Rep is the key to the ELP on the local campus – they are a crucial element to the success and effectiveness of the program. This role is critical to raise up sons and daughters who are called long-term to Teen Challenge. Oftentimes it is overlooked so this month we want to take the time to celebrate the Rep’s on our campuses. Spend time to find out what fills their tank and make them feel appreciated. Here are a few ideas of how you can bless the Rep’s on your campus:

  • Celebrate their achievements –  talk about all the ways they have added value to the center both in front of them and when they are not around
  • Spend quality time – take them out to coffee or lunch and talk about them and what’s happening in their life
  • Give them a “just because” gift – gift cards are great but something handmade, personal and creative says more
  • Invest in their leadership – connect them with a mentor/coach or take them along with you to a meeting
  • Acts of Service – offer to conduct one of their weekly meetings
Business team celebrating over finalization of a contract

Level I Adult 

This month’s course is Boundaries and our text: Boundaries by Dr. Henry boundariesCloud. Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limits and limitations. Are you in control of your life? Do people take advantage of you? Do you have trouble saying no? Boundaries are personal property lines that define who you are and who you are not, and influence all areas of your life. No need to purchase the workbook, there is a study guide at elp.tc under Rep’s Resources.
