A 5-message series intended to help you train and motivate your student leaders and potential leaders. Originally used over a 3-day student leader retreat, these can also be used as individual messages/lessons if you were to meet monthly or quarterly.

1 - Surprised by Leadership:
This message tells the introductory story of God's surprises. There are a lot of biblical surprises of unlikely leaders and it's part of God's way of doing things-He uses unlikely people to serve Him in wonderful ways.

2 - The Balance of Friends & Ministry:
This message challenges students to think about friendships and ministry. They will examine the difference between popularity and having a few deep friendships, and to consider how a misunderstanding of student leadership can lead toward cliques.

3 - Being a Leader while being a Follower:
The intent of this message is to challenge student leaders to think more deeply about what it means to follow Jesus. Being a disciple isn't about being perfect, but it's also not about simply showing up to youth group. Attendance ? discipleship.

4 - Reducing the Fear-Factor of Evangelism:
This is designed to help student leaders understand there's more to evangelism than simply trying to "convert" their friends (there's both a "live it" and a "speak it" element of evangelism). The scary-factor of evangelism can be reduced when the foundational conviction of Jesus becomes stronger.

5 - An Ordinary Day becomes a Leadership Opportunity:
This closing session is a simple reminder that leadership isn't reserved the most popular, the most outgoing, the most consistent in attendance... being a student leader is about being sensitive to God's Spirit moving. Being available. Being willing. Being open to being used by God in extraordinary ways... as an ordinary teenager.

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
