Although Leadertrek has a variety of good podcasts on discipleship and leadership, episode 8, Student Leaders Start Here, is particularly helpful in the field of developing student leaders in your youth group. In this podcast, they give 3 places to start when grooming students for leadership opportunities.
1. Know Thyself (Help them know their gifts and their leadership potential)
2. Balancing Act (Balance between what you do and who you are by having strong charachter)
3. Mission First, People Always (Always put people and their needs before anything else you do).
Leadertrek does well to explain the importance of leadership and how, when used effectively, it can create a fire under the entire church.
