Developing Leaders: Take The Lead

Contributed by: Karen Spoelstra, Diocese of Auckland

Do you want to turn the leadership potential you see in your teenagers into reality?

Are you keen to help your existing young leaders grow and mature in their leadership roles?

Are you looking for leadership training that is straightforward, grounded in Scripture, adaptable, and fun?

Take The Lead is a series of training resources, focusing on the heart of leadership. They have been designed to take your teenagers and young adults on the next step in their Christian leadership journey. Created by Dion Fasi with Anglican Youth Ministries in Auckland, these deceptively simple guides are the distilled wisdom of thousands of youth ministry hours.

Recognizing that teenagers learn best when they are having fun, each module contains discussion questions, games, activities, video clips and Bible readings.
