Entrusted Leader

The ENTRUSTED Leader’s Workbook: “Barnabas” Edition has been customized to meet the
needs of the Men At The Cross discipleship ministry. Leadership, in all forms, presents unlimited opportunities to make disciples.

The ENTRUSTED Leader development program workbook features a series of lessons
on seven core values of Biblical leadership. These seven core values characterize the type
of leader I believe God desires all of us to become! Any follower of Jesus Christ who has
been, or will be, entrusted with the privilege of leading others in the marketplace
represents the ideal participant.
