Sketches of Leadership

What can we learn from the Bible about leadership principles? These Bible studies provide a wealth of character studies, scriptural images, and relevant topics for training emerging leaders. Each Bible study is an easy-to-use two-page format with additional notes for leading students in a training setting.

These Sketches of Leadership are modular and independent units so they can be used in any order. Plan 45-90 minutes for each one. The studies are divided into Images of Leadership and Topical Sketches of Leadership.

Images of Leadership

Explore biblical images of the leader as a shepherd, a servant, an ill patient, a sage, a sentinel, a visionary, a steward, a sponsor and a sower.

Topical Sketches of Leadership

by Rich Lamb, InterVarsity staff

Examine biblical leadership topics that develop vision, prayer, character, coping with difficulties, community, evangelism, outreach, multiethnicity, and starting new ministries.
