Fall for Leadership - Friday, November 4, 2016
Fall for Leadership supports service learning as way for students to understand the concepts of leadership. Service learning is a method of learning that combines meaningful community service with instruction and reflection activities to enhance leadership learning. By reflecting on our times serving on ministry teams, missions, summer internships, community service through the Day of Service (and other community service projects), or serving our community through participation in a campus organization or sports team, SWU students will have a better understanding of their own leadership potential.
Theme: Developing our Leadership Gifts
The theme for Fall for Leadership 2016 is "Developing Our Leadership Gifts." There are many valuable leadership lessons we can learn through hard work and service to others. Through our service we also learn more about the gifts God has given us in order to lead others to him. Many students would be shocked and surprised that leadership skills such as time management, supervision, project management, communication, visioning, problem solving, etc. can all be learned through community service.
As a learning community, all members are invited to present and participate in the conference. All programs should be tailored to the student experience.
The scriptural reference for this leadership conference comes from 1 Peter 4:10, "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms" (NIV).
