BLP students receive teaching on leadership while benefiting from the hands-on context of staffing a school to put into practice what they are learning. This program helps participants grow in servant-heartedness, in leadership calling and in exercising leadership values and skills, with the goal of becoming a leader after God’s heart.
Teaching topics include: Servant leadership, leading by example, authority, conflict resolution, communication, teamwork, etc. Beyond the responsibilities exercised while staffing the school, BLP students will:
- Benefit from a coaching relationship with the BLP leader
- Meet the speaker of the week for a time of teaching and discussion on an aspect of leadership
- Study various leadership books and take part in regular leadership-focused Bible study
- Learn what it means to staff on a base through teaching and hands on experience
Who is it for?
