When I was a 8th grader, my youth minister had a conversation with me that helped set me on a path for the duration of my high school career.
I went to a small school and a small town church, so there weren’t a plethora of students in our youth ministry. As an 8th grader, there were some strong seniors and a junior, but a gap between the junior and my class.
My youth minister sat me down and said the next year I was going to be one of the leaders, along with a couple of classmates.
And the invitation to leadership altered the next four years. It opened my eyes to opportunities all around me.
There’s someone around you who is waiting for an invitation to leadership. Maybe they haven’t been asked to step up. Maybe they haven’t seen the need to step up.
The invitation makes all the difference in the world. Who can you ask?
