Basic Biblical Leadership Sequence

This sequence is actually two sequences often used together to form a unified curriculum. The bolded Sketch numbers could be used for a shorter curriculum, while all the Sketches listed form a more complete basic leadership curriculum. To access Sketches, click on a topic or headline. To download individual sketches, go to the Library.
For Leaders of Groups: Helping leaders of small groups understand their role as shepherds and servants, gently influencing not either failing to influence or trying to "rule" with force and harshness. Deals with conflict in relationships, burnout, and the leader's proper relationship with God, one that provides the love, wisdom and other resources needed to lead.

More Topical and Biblical Sequences

The Sketches of Leadership are modular and flexible and do not need to be delivered in any particular order, so an experienced trainer can use them in their own context with maximum flexibility. However, some sequences of Sketches have a logical progression and topical continuity.​
