LOVE RECKLESSLY: SERVANT LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE 2017


SYNOPSIS:

In 2017 LEAD222 will dive into the value of Loving Recklessly. We will explore how Jesus led others and established love as the central way to do life. Students will be challenged to view their potential leadership being best expressed by the way we love and serve others. What if loved God and others with a reckless abandon and a selfless heart? 

SESSION 1: SERVANT LEADERSHIP

Servant leaders serve because they are motivated by love and humility. Jesus is the perfect example of servant leadership. Jesus humbled himself and became a servant of all. Jesus modeled a lifestyle of leadership that was clothed in love and servant-hood.

SESSION 2: YOU ARE LOVED

We are destined for a life of emptiness, darkness, and destruction without God’s love. His love changed everything. We must receive the gift of his love – we can’t earn it and we’ll never deserve it, it is only received. Our theme of Loving Recklessly must begin by acknowledging and receiving the love of the Father for each of us.

SESSION 3: RECKLESS LOVE

Reckless is defined by being out of control. What if our love for God and others was reckless? What if we took the greatest commandment outlined by Jesus, to love God and to love others and made that the greatest focus of our life. This could radically lead our communities to become different places.

SESSION 4: SURROUNDED BY LOVE

The heart of Lead222 is mentoring. Living the constellation of mentoring is one of the best ways to put one’s life into an intentional context of loving one another and growing as leaders.

SESSION 5: BY OUR LOVE

By our love the world will know that we are followers of Jesus. Love is a language the entire world speaks. We can change the world...by our love.

ADDITIONAL SL LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Students will have hands on missional experiences to learn the heart of Servant Leadership. Students will receive a SL Journal with daily devotionals and leadership experiences. Students will be challenged to practice a daily leadership experience. Each ministry will engage in meaningful Team Times. Each day Students will engage in daily times of worship and devotion. Students will experience a mid-trip leadership training experience.

Below is a brief look at our plan to equip and teach students over the next several years with content and experiences that will shape the way they choose to live.
