Learning to Lead

Teens Attend Leadership Retreat
June 10, 2021

WEWOKA, OKLA. – Though the weather kept us from our original plan, God blessed our Teen Leadership Retreat with an awesome experience!

Thirty-one Teen Leadership Trainees (TLTs) attended the retreat at Wewoka Woods Adventist Center in Wewoka on March 12. During the retreat we investigated what leaders are and what they do.

This retreat was a capstone to the new monthly sessions on leadership that several TLTs have been attending virtually on Zoom, with the goal to gain an understanding of what it takes to be a great leader, to learn their leadership styles and to take these skills and apply them in their lives and clubs.

Between sessions, TLTs were challenged with team and leadership-building activities that challenged them to communicate and work together.

We defined what a leader is and we looked at the responsibilities of a leader and how we can grow as leaders. The goal is not only to develop these teens as leaders in Pathfinders but to equip them for leadership in any direction that God calls them.
