“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity” (1 Timothy 4:12, NLT).
Beginning with dinner tonight, a select group of nine young Wycliffe staff from a variety of home and field assignments will assemble for a leadership development program, called Unplugged, with Wycliffe USA President Bob Creson. Lasting through Friday, this set of dinners and discussions at the Cresons’ home presents rising leaders with the opportunity to both suggest their own topics for discussion and hear what is on Bob’s heart and gain a greater understanding of the current trends affecting Wycliffe USA and Vision 2025.
The Unplugged program, recommended by a member of the Wycliffe USA Board, has already proven to be an effective leadership development tool for InterVarsity.* Unplugged is designed to build trust and prompt honest conversation, as well as challenge and inspire all of the participants to continued personal growth and to consider future leadership possibilities.
- Pray for these rising leaders to sense God’s continued direction and wisdom for them during Unplugged. Pray for good group discussions that lead to long-term, trusting relationships.
