The Word on Being a Leader

True leadership means getting your feet wet. 

When Christ wrapped Himself with a towel and began to wash the disciples' feet, He demonstrated that the gospel requires a type of leadership that goes beyond power or popularity. It means having enough courage to do the dirty work that no one else wants to do - such as staying after meetings to help stack chairs or spending time with people who aren't very popular.

The Word on Being a Leader, Serving Others and Sharing Your Faith encourages young people to go from accepting the gospel to living it. You'll learn the nuts and bolts of sharing your faith through a life of ministry and service.

The Word on Being a Leader, Serving Others and Sharing Your Faith has been developed for high school youth by Jim Burns, one of today's most acclaimed youth leaders. This high-involvement youth Bible study has been field-tested in the crucible of his own youth ministry. It's certain to strike a nerve, the right nerve, with youth.
