Welcome, Upper Secondary Students, to the Shepherd Leadership Program designed just for emerging and growing leaders!

When you’re ready to complete this program and live into your calling as leader in the lives of those you influence, just download the “Leadership from a Shepherd’s Perspective” workbook, complete the steps below and watch how it changes your relationship with The Good Shepherd and all those you encounter!  

  1. Review your Participant Workbook notes from Episode #1 of the Teen/Young Adult Version of the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workshop on RightNow Media, if already completed. If not previously completed, download the Participant Materials and complete Episode #1 of this workshop. Only include the F/P Expectations Exercise if you are completing this Episode with a teacher or facilitator. 
  2. Complete Episode #2 of the Teen/Young Adult Version of the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workshop on RightNow Media. This episode is titled “What? We Can Shepherd People?” 
  3. Complete Episode #3 of the Teen/Young Adult Version of the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workshop on RightNow Media. This episode is titled “Exploring the Past”. 
  4. Complete Episode #4 of the Teen/Young Adult Version of the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workshop on RightNow Media. This episode is titled “Shepherding in Scripture”. 
  5. Complete Episode #5 of the Teen/Young Adult Version of the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workshop on RightNow Media. This episode is titled “Making Shepherding Real for Me”. 
  6. Complete Episode #6 of the Teen/Young Adult Version of the “Leadership from the Shepherd’s Perspective” workshop on RightNow Media. This episode is titled “The Shepherding Superpower”. Download the Shrek Card and download Volume 1 of the 30-Day Shepherd Leadership Challenge (if you have not done so already) from the freePresence Point app. 
  7. Download and complete Volume 2 of the 30-Day Shepherd Leadership Challenge from the freePresence Point app. Determine which area of your leadership needs the most attention: Provision, Protection, or Presence. Write a 300-word blog or record a vlog of up to four minutes in length that addresses the importance of all three pivotal elements of Godly shepherding. Include in the blog what you learned from completing the 30-Day Shepherd Leadership Challenge, share which of the three areas needs the most growth in your life, and talk about how you’ll be addressing that area. Submit the blog or vlog to Presence Point (Holly@PresencePoint.com) to post on social media. Note: Your name will not be fully disclosed through any Presence Point social media outlets.  
  8. Share the results of the Responsibilities of a Shepherd activity you completed on Pages 22-24 of the workshop Participant Workbook with your teacher, mentor, or family. Include any Aha! moments you’ve experienced in completing this activity. (Leaders, it’s most common for participants to be surprised at how many responsibilities include the requirement of presence.)
  9. Using online or print reference material, research the behavior of sheep and determine the similarities between sheep and people. Create a newscast reporting the findings of the research and present it to your teacher, mentor, or your family in either a prerecorded or live format. This activity can be completed as a group as well.  
  10. Share the “Woe To” passages from Pages 31-33 of the workshop Participant Workbook with your teacher, mentor, or family. Discuss the consequences of shepherding poorly, using this activity as a devotional. 
  11. From the Action Plan you created on Pages 38-39 of the workshop Participant Workbook, develop a plan of how to shepherd successfully in one specific area of your life, with assistance from your teacher, mentor, or family. 
  12. Using the information in the L column of the K-W-L chart you completed on Page 6 of the workshop Participant Workbook, teach what you’ve learned about shepherd leadership to your teacher, mentor, or family. 
  13. Use your favorite art medium (paint, clay, chalk, ink, playdoh for sculpting, or even popsicle sticks or tongue depressors and googly eyes – whatever you like, be imaginative!) to create a piece of art that represents how you believe you demonstrating the behaviors of a godly shepherd leader. Once it’s complete, share the piece of art with your class, your family, or your teacher, and describe your creation to them, sharing with them the variety of ways the piece of art demonstrates how you demonstrate godly shepherding behaviors. Before your presentation, ask those to whom you are presenting to make a list during your presentation of all the ways they hear you describe how you demonstrate shepherd leadership. After the presentation, ask the participants to read their lists to the class or share them with you privately. 
  14. Since we can all improve in how we exhibit godly shepherd behaviors, create a second piece of art representing what godly shepherding behaviors you would like to demonstrate more effectively three years from now. Present your final product to your class, family, or teacher, explaining the imagery, what it means, and what you are communicating about your current and future shepherd self. List what action steps you will take to make that desire a reality.
