What does it mean to be a student leader?
Leadership isn't about popularity, or a title, or a position. It's about making a lasting impact by following the call of God, taking appropriate risks, and challenging other teenagers to follow Christ.
Doug Franklin wrote this book because he's committed to seeing people develop a leadership heart. He knows what it takes to help you reach a place where you move beyond your comfort zone, where you solve problems that seem impossible to conquer, where you wholeheartedly serve other people. Doug's passionate about this stuff!

DOUG FRANKLIN leads a ministry called LeaderTreks (leadertreks.org) that is all about helping students and youth workers grow as leaders. He believes that students are some of the most powerful people in God's kingdom and that investing in them is priceless. Doug also thinks that the process of growing as leaders is messy, hard, full of risks, and one of the best things we get to do as Christ-followers. Doug writes a blog at youthministryleader.com.
