WHAT IS LEADERSHIP?

´  Leadership is the ability to adapt the setting so everyone feels empowered to contribute creatively to solving the problems. Steven M. Smith
´  Leadership is both a research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to "lead" or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. Wikipedia

LEADERSHIP MISCONCEPTION

´  Do you confuse leaders with personality or public intellectual?
´  Do you misconceive position with leadership?
´  Do you take popularity, oration, and charisma for leadership?


HOW DO WE DEFINE A YOUTH?

Biblical Perspective  

Proverbs 20:29 The glory of young men is their strength, And the honor of old men is their gray hair.

SECULAR PERSPECTIVE

´  UN defines ‘youth’, as those persons between the ages of 15 and 24 years;
´  In African Youth Charter “youth” means “every person between the ages of 15 and 35 years”.
´  Early period in life of animate being. Thesaurus Dictionary

WHY DO WE NEED TO RISE AND RESCUE AFRICA?

The answer is because we have a mismatch between natural deposit and quality growth in the continent. The success recorded in the continent pales to the natural endowment we have.

´  In term of natural resources, Africa is the world’s richest continent.
´  It has 50% of the world’s gold, most of the diamonds and chromium, & 90% of the cobalt
´  40% of the world's potential hydroelectric power, 65% of the manganese, millions of acres of untilled farmland, as well as other natural resources


AFRICA & THE GLOBAL WORLD

Why is this assignments for us?

The scripture actually you the light of the world, light human darkness, light to questions in the hearts of men, social and spiritual problems. Rise up and let your light shine.

‘Africa’ is seeking for your rescue!
Matthew 5:13-16

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

You never too young to lead, never doubt your ability to triumph where others have not.

What is keeping us Waiting from Impacting Our World?
