MAJORITY OF THE STARS YOUTHS SEE AS ROLE MODELS HAVE NO CHARACTER TO GIVE THEM
THERE IS THE CHALLENGE OF THE ABSENCE OF POSITIVE ROLE MODELS FOR THE YOUTHS IN OUR GENERATION
WE NEED SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE WHO HAVE CHARACTER, INTEGRITY; WHO HAVE WHAT TO OFFER TO THE YOUTHS
– Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche on “THE CHALLENGE OF YOUTH LEADERSHIP AND HARNESSING OPPORTUNITIES GOD’S WAY” Youth Leadership Summit Tanzania Apostolic Invasion – Day 2 Dodoma, Tanzania 23rd June, 2023 || Part A
I will read Genesis 41:39-44. I am aware that this is a Youth Leadership forum and I am convinced that everyone who is here today at every age will benefit from what I am about to say.
The topic is THE CHALLENGE OF YOUTH LEADERSHIP AND HARNESSING OPPORTUNITIES GOD’S WAY. To simplify it, the challenge of Youth Leadership and harnessing opportunities God’s way, I am going to look at 4 objectives.
1. We are going to understand youth leadership challenge.
2. The qualities that position youths for leadership and these qualities will position anybody for leadership.
3. The opportunities that come with leadership potential. Any where there is leadership potential, opportunities come with it.
4. How to handle those opportunities God’s way because there are those who mismanage opportunities.
What is the leadership challenge among the youths?
There is a serious leadership challenge among the youths in our generation. I classify the challenge in 3 ways:
1. The challenge of the absence of positive role models for the youths: positive role models and mentors for the youths of today are lacking. A lot of youths have music stars, movie stars, movie super stars as role models and mentors and there is nothing wrong with that except that the majority of the stars they see as role models have no character to give the youths.
Most of them have marital disasters, personal life disasters, perverted lifestyles. These are the people that the youths are modelling themselves after.
So you see youths behave in ways and you are wondering; they dress in ways and you are wondering; they act in ways and you are wondering. They tell you, ‘but this person is behaving like that and he is successful.’ So we need successful people who have character, integrity, we need stars on the top who have what to offer to the youths.
– There are people here among them that God is raising right now!
