Training Leaders in Orlando

This past October, Félix Ortíz and Sara Bonet travelled to Orlando, Fl to particpate in the Convención International de Liderazgo Juvenil (Youth Leadership International  Conference) organized by Especialidades Juveniles (Youth Specialties), an organzation whose mission is to train and equip leaders to be effective youth leaders.

Close to a thousand leaders from the United States and Latin American countries met together for an intense time of vision, motivation, training as well as opportunities to gather resources and make connections with other youth leaders.

Félix was responsible to lead several training sessions for more than four hundred youth leaders: How to share your faith in a post-modern culture and How to facilitate cooperation between families and youth leaders were among the topics that he spoke on.

However, Félix was especially pleased to have the opportunity to give three workshops on How to Integrate the Basic Tools of Coaching Using Your Own Leadership Style. About three hundred youth leaders participated. Both Félix and Sara think that Coaching will be one of the key topics and tools in the development of future leaders. By integrating these tools, the effectiveness of leaders will increase and the impact that they can have in developing mature and stable followers of Jesus will also increase, as well as their commitment to be agents of restoration in a broken world.

Both Félix and Sara are adding to their own training and certification, not only to become experts in this tool of Coaching and use it in their own ministries, but also to be able to develop others.
