Pass on Leadership

Passing the Baton

One mark of being a leader is being able to equip others to lead well. Look around for students who have a vision for campus ministry and do well in offering hospitality, doing evangelism, leading Bible study, etc. Invite them to be an "apprentice" alongside you and learn from you as you lead. Listen to their ideas and include them in planning and carrying out the various responsibilities necessary to make your chapter run smoothly. The more involved people are, the more committed they will be and your chapter will be healthier.


World Student DayCelebrate World Student Day on October 18th.
