He also shares The Five Tasks of a Leader: five tools we should be teaching the students we put into leadership roles. One of these tasks is to help them determine the vision for a project.
Doug says that student leadership development begins with relationship.
It’s important to remember that, as youth ministers, we need to take the time to really get to know students by asking them deep questions. We shouldn’t label them as leaders because we happen to know their family or older siblings…or because they are the cute, fun, popular students. We need to truly care about each of them, individually, and then they will open up to us and allow us to walk alongside them in their development.
