FTL Fall 2012: CBSM Leadership Training Group


FTL (Follow The Leader) is a fall semester long leadership training group for our high school students.

FTL is for those high school students who are wanting to grow deeper and go farther in their spiritual leadership. CBSM defines leadership as “following Jesus and bringing others with you.” In this FTL semester, our students will be studying “Gospel-Centered Discipleship” by Jonathan Dodson. This is a great book to learn the importance of being a disciple of Jesus, the importance of being discipled by a spiritual mentor, and the importance of discipling others towards Jesus. The book will be provided for the students who want to be involved. Here is the application that every student must fill-out and turn in by Sunday, September 2nd.

FTL: CBSM Leadership Training for Teens

FTL simply stands for Follow The Leader. In CBSM, we believe that leadership is “following Jesus and bringing others with you.” On top of biblical & theological training on weekly worship nights, life-applicational discussions in small groups, and spiritual gift training in our Student Ministry Teams…we also offer specific “Leadership Training” for the teens who want to go farther in following Jesus and bringing others with them. The teens who want this semester-long training must be saved, baptized, already faithfully attending everything at CBSM, and fill-out this FTL application. This semester, we will be studying “Gospel in Life” by Timothy Keller. This is both a DVD and Workbook study on how to live out the gospel of Jesus Christ in the eight major arenas of daily life. It will be powerful, life-changing, and excellent training on how to be a follower of Jesus and leader of others to Him!
