Russia 2016 Grads Retreat

As part of our Russia trip we conducted a Leadership Seminar for a dozen of our orphanage graduates at our Kostroma Dacha. Pastor Paula Koch and I decided to focus on “The Character of a Christian Leader.” We used the stories of Joseph (the Old Testament one), Moses, Esther, and Jesus to illustrate the character qualities of godly leaders.

With each biblical person we asked the grads to “act out” their story, and to list the leadership qualities they saw in each person’s life. Below you will see some of the scenes they acted out, and at the end you will see a list of 16 leadership characterists they learned. May God grant that we all have these characteristics as disciples of Jesus!
