I need your help.
I have the privilege of speaking on the topic of "leadership and student ministry" with some college students who will most likely be youth pastors.
We'll be covering topics like...
* Leading Your Own Soul
* Leading Parents
* Recruiting, Training and Shepherding Adult Leaders
* Student Leadership - Helping Students Discover, Develop and Utilize Their Giftedness
Part of the day we will discuss general leadership, sharing 5 things all young leaders should do. My desire would be to challenge and inspire them to think through practical leadership habits most in their early 20's wouldn't think about. I hope these leadership principles will be radically practical.
This is where you come in, if you're involved in leadership, especially ministry leadership, could you share your top 5? Perhaps thinking about what you wish you knew about basic leadership when you were younger? Or, if you work with younger leaders, what do you wish they would know and do?
Here are a couple examples.
Leaders should communicate clearly to a variety of audiences. Example, when planning a mission trip, what should be communicated to which audiences.
Leaders should follow through. You have to finish what you start.
Thanks for your help. You may or may not receive a huge prize if I use one of your leadership principles. It's cool to tap in to your vast wisdom and experience!
