Your Collegiate Ministry will be no better or stronger than your student leaders. When selecting and developing student leaders here are three key characteristics to look for and develop:
-Integrity: models/demonstrates what he/she says.
-Personal Discipline: studies and prepares for responsibility and has a commitment to excellence.
-Courage: willing to take an unpopular stand when necessary.
Consider these skills:
1. Team Building (not a one person show; willing to help others buy-in and share ownership)
2. Task Focus (able to see what needs doing and keep the main thing the main thing)
3. Team member development (helping each develop and enhance their unique God-given gifts and abilities)
