We may think of them as the leaders of tomorrow, but the kids you minister to are already leaders---they're the leaders of today. In hallways, on playing fields, and in their own homes, students are influencing the lives that surround them. Nehemiah is one of the Bible's most powerful examples of what a godly leader looks like. This newest collection of Creative Bible Lessons helps your students connect with this ancient figure in a way that is both engaging and relevant. Each session focuses on one chapter of the Old Testament book by using activities that emphasize four different learning styles---thereby ensuring that your students hear what they need to hear in ways they need to hear it. The session titles include: A Leader Passionately Prays A Leader Teaches Truth A Leader Walks the Walk A Leader Instills Integrity A Leader Hungers for Holiness Each session also offers an overview, a list of things you'll need, background information on the Nehemiah chapter, openers, plenty of questions, and application options such as games, discussion starters, and small group activities that help the meaning of Nehemiah stick in your students' heads. Creative Bible Lessons in Nehemiah will get your students thinking about the kinds of leaders God is calling them to be and provide them with the tools to be that leader...today.
