Our next Core Course is Ministry Development and our text: From Dream to Realityby Dr. Jerry Nance. Dr. J outlines 21 principles for us to move our dreams from just a dream – to reality. The leader must hear from God, Pray hard, work hard and then pray God blesses your work, cherish and celebrate victories along the way, learning to laugh and much more. Some of you should have a copy of this book but if you don’t email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll mail one to you.
Your first post for this course will be up on the forum Monday, July 20th. You’ll make an initial post and then respond to someone’s post.
Seeing time seems to be going faster than I can type, I want to get these dates on your calendar for this year: our 10th. Anniversary ELP Summit will be April 23-25th and our Rep’s Retreat will be May 7- 9th at Lakeside Retreat and Event Center, Seale, AL. Look out for our Summit promo video next month. Please keep these two events in prayer and make plans to be there!
Level I Adult
This month our core course is Servant Leadership and our text: Lead Like Jesus by Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges. Blanchard asks the questions “Who will you follow? How will you lead?” There is one leadership role model you can trust and His name is Jesus. There is a way to lead that honors God and restores health and effectiveness to organizations and relationships. It is the way Jesus calls us to follow as leaders: to serve rather than to be served.
Level I Adolescent
Our course for the Adolescent track is Servant Leadership and our text: Help! I’m a Student Leaderby Doug Fields. “The backbone of Christian leadership is simple to understand yet very difficult to pull off: Serve. Master this task and you’ll become a very powerful servant leader. If servant doesn’t describe you right now, don’t give up. Read and pray and ask God to mold you into the type of leader He wants you to become.”
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 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 Kerry Pevey (ELP Admin Asst) an email at email@example.com. Blessings!
