Today I had the opportunity to meet with our Children’s Ministry Director about our Leader’s in Training (LIT) program. We will be teaching young people ages 10-12 about leadership. It will be an interactive, technology driven and hands on opportunity for young people to learn about leadership. They will also have opportunities to actually lead other young campers.
We seem to be deficient in leadership in this country. To have an opportunity to awaken leadership in the hearts of young people is exciting. The best part will be to see these young people blossom over the summer. My desire is to see them understand who they are and their eventual impact on those in their generation as they continue to grow up.
Are we leadership deficient in this country? I think so. Some key qualities missing from those in leadership positions today include integrity, vision, strong character. These are just a few qualities that need to be developed in our young LIT’s.
