This is handout 1.13, Qualifications of Leadership from 1st Timothy, part 2, in Foundations to Leadership. I wrote it to help develop the Youth Leaders (LITs) in our Awana Club. This hand-out and others like it are given the the kids at the end of club to take home and review during the week. They write out answers to the questions which they then discuss with a mentor, and return to club. I do not object to it being copied and used.

Verses of the week: “Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self- controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.” 1st Timothy 3:2-3 NIV.

1. (A) Why should a leader be hospitable? (B) How can we be hospitable as leaders?

5. Last week we asked "Which aspect of leadership listed in the verses above do you feel weakest?" What progress have you made this week to improve in this area?
