Lesson #1: Be Intentional

  • Big Idea: To be an influential person, you have to be intentional with your actions and be aware of your actions and how they affect others. You have a purpose, and you won’t let anything get in the way of it.
  • Key Passage: The story of Paul from conversion to persecuted Christian. We’ll talk about how Paul became one of the most influential people of the Bible and how he was a godly example to follow.
